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.

Desperate for a high

It’s midnight. It’s Thursday, so I have to go to work tomorrow.

Yet, I can’t stop watching my Netflix. My need for a hit is so bad that I’ve now resorted to watching the show I’m into on the Internet. Because it’s not available yet on DVD, but it is available online. And I CANNOT WAIT for it to come on DVD. I must watch this episode. And the next one. And just one more after that.

I keep looking at the clock, then at the computer screen showcasing my drug of choice. I’m tired. I have to get up early. I know this isn’t right. But then, “click”. Next episode. One more hit.

They really should make a 12-step program for this sort of thing.
