All it takes is a vacay

That last post was pretty Sad Sally, wasn’t it?

It’s amazing what 10 days will do. Well, that and the prospect of a two week vacation.

Yep, that’s right. As of 5 p.m. this evening, I will be off until after Christmas! Now, this means I will be working in between Christmas and New Year’s, so as you guys are enjoying that time to yourself, I’ll be cursing this early vacay. But for now, I’m choosing to rub it in wherever I can.

I’m in dire need of some time away. The past month or so, I’ve been a bit burnt out. Not because of too much work, but because of too little. That, combined with a general lack of inspiration in what I’m doing has made getting through the past few weeks quite a task.

But no more! My goal is to take some time resting and recouping from yet another fantastic year, and then throwing myself into 2010. Because I have a feeling it will be a pretty great year!

So, what am I going to do with my time off? Well, I’m glad you asked!

  • Shopping Detroit. I can’t totally complete my shopping list within city limits, but some friends and family will be getting gifts from some of my favorite local boutiques…namely Bureau of Urban Living and City Bird. There will also be a healthy dose of Pewabic Pottery in the mix!
  • Netflixing my brains out. I’m hoping to finish Six Feet Under!
  • Spending QT with DD. God, his work schedule has sucked lately. In fact, I haven’t talked to him, aside from a couple blackberry messages, since 6 a.m. Tuesday morning. We share about half of my time off together and I’m looking forward to kicking back together!
  • Reading! A new book club book awaits, as do a stack of books I stole from my mom’s house over Thanksgiving.

  1. I’m planning on hogging my mom’s Netflicks while I’m on vacation too. I’m going to make a forum post on 20SB about a meetup today. I talked to Ria and GingerMandy and we’re thinking January. So excited!

  2. Wow, I don’t think I even took off 2 full weeks for my wedding. That’s awesome that you get that time away. If it’s any consolation, I’ll be working the week between Christmas & New Years, too. But, I like working that week, because it’s easy in the office and otherwise wasted vacation days.

  3. Off-topic, but its snowing on your blog. And I’m kind of into it. Like I’ve been watching it snow for an unhealthy amount of time.

  4. Christmas hardly seems like a vacation to me right now because I am SO stuck on January 11th, when Eddie and I take off for Florida.

    Hooray for much-deserved time off! I hope you enjoy every minute of it :o)

  5. Good for you taking time off. I have time off coming up soon and I cannot wait. We all need that time to recharge and take a break.

    i hope you enjoy every minute of your vacation. even though you have to work while others are off at least it should be quiet 🙂

  7. ooh happy vacation! you so deserve it! hope you and your man can find some quality time together for some nice winter activities!

  8. Have such a wonderful vacation!! You definitely deserve some serious R&R. I can’t imagine anything better than curling up with the man love and watching lots of “Six Feet Under.” Ahhh, perfection.

  9. Love it. I’m in the middle of my 10 day vacation myself, right now… HEAVEN.
