It’s the last work day of my stay-cation. I don’t have to go to work until Monday, of course, but still, today is the last day that everyone has to work and I do not. It’s been a really nice break and it has gone surprisingly slowly. After the first week was over, I felt like it had already been two weeks and so I was super excited to still have another week before I had to go back to work.
I haven’t accomplished everything I wanted to with this time off, but my list was pretty lofty and I’m happy with the things I did accomplish: clean and organized kitchen, tidied up living room, time with friends, a little trip out of town… Actually, maybe we won’t list what I did accomplish; it’ll seem like too little. 😉
I think I’ve probably mentioned before that I crochet. My mother taught my sister when we were kids and I wanted to do anything my sister did so I had to learn too. Now, I find it very relaxing and enjoyable, even though I don’t do it as often as I would like. Michelle has a friend who is having a baby in late March or early April and she asked me to make a blanket for the friend/baby. We stopped last night on the way back from Cache Creek to buy yarn, and today, instead of being super productive on my last paid day off, I’ve sat around clearing out my DVR and crocheting. I suppose one could argue that the crocheting is productive since I have an easily attainable deadline, but there’s still a pile of clothes to be ironed and a stack of papers to organize and put away and a– You know what? We won’t make that list either.
I did get a lot of good things accomplished and I had a nice relaxing and enjoyable break, too.
All in all, I think I did this stay-cation just about right!

Sounds right to me. If you spent the whole time tackling a to-do list, it wouldn’t have been very relaxing, which is after all, the whole point of a staycation!
