9 Days- Vacation Countdown

The Swan

It’s been almost 4 years since I took one of my favorite photos in Scotland -Four years since my last vacation.

I’ve spent the last few days relaxing a bit because I was stressing myself out over things I want to get finished before vacation, but I need to get back on the ball.  I want this house as clean as possible so when I am on my stay-cation I can relax.  I really need the time to reflect and make some decisions, tinker with hobbies and relax.

However, there are also some things I need to handle during business hours and it will be helpful to get those done while I am on vacation.  They’re small things like moving a retirement account from an old job into an IRA and making a few phone calls etc.  As crazy as it might sound I feel like I need to schedule specific blocks of time out of my day for those things while I am off.

I also feel like I need to try to schedule some time to sew up a few quick skirts since my wardrobe is looking a bit pathetic these days.  I need some new clothes and I have material lying around, so it’s a good idea to get to work on a few of those things.

There is also a sump pump line that needs to be reburied in the yard, but honestly that will depend on if my hubby is working full-time at that point.  It’s not that I can’t do it myself, it’s just likely I’ll hurt my back if I try to do it all alone.  Things to ponder…

When you stay at home on vacation, do you work or play?  A bit of both?
