Mid vacation update

Before my husband's vacation started, I thought I would want to be productive this week as normal. Ha! I'm not used to taking vacations. When I worked full time, I would take two vacations a year, each one a full week long. During that week, I was a full time housewife! Those week long vacations were a chance for me to make great meals, scrub the house from top to bottom, and catch up on things I didn't normally have time to do. I've never just stayed home and relaxed.

Hubby encouraged me to take a vacation with him. So far I've done grocery shopping and we took the car in for some maintenance work. That's it! I'm not staying on top of the dishes, I'm not doing regular housework, and I haven't studied a single minute of Japanese this week. It's very weird! I'm behind in my email correspondence and this is the first blog post I've written in almost a week. I'm actually taking a vacation.

We're not doing much. I've been exercising like normal, training for a 5k on Thanksgiving. I've also been finishing a few books on my to-read list and have spent hours talking to my mom. Hubby and I have played a couple board games, watched a couple movies, and just relaxed! It does feel like we're farther along in the week than Tuesday so I might find myself being productive later this week. We'll see! I know I have to do a couple loads of laundry tomorrow as the basket is overflowing. Other than that, I plan on doing very little!

a vacation sounds like a good thing! It is hard when you are at home though because you keep thinking about all the things you should be doing instead of relaxing!
Enjoy yourself!
