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.
