Things have been pretty hectic at work lately, and over the past month or two, I frequently found myself daydreaming about a few days off of work. So, a couple of weeks ago I noticed that my calendar for the beginning of this week was empty, and I scheduled a little staycation. I’m off until Thursday, and the mental break from work is just what I needed. I’m being really good and not even checking my work email!

I wasn’t able to relax yesterday, as I had the fire inspection in the morning and then about six hours of errands to run. It was good to accomplish the errands, though, so I can now feel somewhat caught up with life. But today I got a much-needed hair cut and highlights and I also threw in a pedicure as a special treat. I was so relaxed in the pedicure chair that I nearly fell asleep!

Craig is working late tonight and I was planning on tackling the furnace room project, but I am feeling so good after my pampering that I have decided to officially do nothing tonight. I am going to sit on the couch, watch some “Gossip Girl” (yes, I’m one of those 30-something GG addicts), and knit. All with awesome hair and shiny toes! Very appropriate for a mini-staycation.

    Thanks for the comments on my blog.
    We actually live in Severn so not far from you.

    Ahhh!!! That sounds so lovely. You made me groan with jealousy over the pampering pedicure. Except I have this weird foot aversion, including people touching mine.

    ahhhh that sounds WONDERFUL! You need some appropriate staycation food, too.
