So today is my 3rd day back to work after having 11 days off. And to be completely honest....I need another vacation! I was more busy during those 11 days off, than I would have been had I gone into the office.
My time off consisted of a ton of shopping, 3 Thanksgiving celebrations (all on separate days), holiday decorating (both indoors and out), my sister's birthday, laundry and house cleaning, and spending time with family. All of these items bring me great joy, but I greatly missed having a single minute alone with my husband during those 11 days. By the end of my time off, we were so physically exhausted from being on the go, that I think we were both ready for me to go back to work. At least during a normal work week we have dinner together and get some quality time to talk about our day, upcoming events, etc. It's hard to put into words how badly I missed those simple conversations.
The good news, is that I have many scheduled days off in December and I am counting down the days until then. I have promised myself that I will SLOW DOWN and enjoy those days as much as possible.
And because this post was kind of a downer....here is a picture of Lainey displaying her holiday spirit as we decorate the Christmas tree.
