"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

another vacation bites the dust

Despite a full schedule that was carefully planned in advance, I don’t think I did anything at all today, and I’m fine with that.  I was supposed to take Indiana Jones to doggy classes, but I just wasn’t up to it.  We were supposed to clean and organize our bedroom, but that will have to wait until another day.  I didn’t feel as awful as I have all week, but I still just don’t feel my best.    

As busy as this week was, and as much as we accomplished, it still feels like we did absolutely nothing.  Our “to do list” sits, practically untouched, on the kitchen table waiting for us to complete it.  And somehow the house seems messier than before we started cleaning it.  It would seem as if I have a lot of work ahead of me for the coming week.  But at least I’ll be here by myself to do it.  For some reason, I get a lot more done when no one is around to distract me.  Then again, my health would have to cooperate with me first.  With any luck, I’ll at least feel good enough to vacuum.

Of course, whether or not I feel better, Mike has to head back to the office tomorrow morning.  I’m sure that will be a bit of a shock to his system after sleeping in for an entire week.  I know he isn’t looking forward to the end of a too short vacation.  I keep reminding him that Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away, and he’ll have a few days off to sleep in again.  I think that at least cushions the blow somewhat.  And the impending holiday raises my spirits and gives me something to work toward while I attempt to tackle the house this week. 

Next week, I will be devoting the blog to Thanksgiving. 

Until the next time…I’ll be dusting off that “to do list” to get things done!
