I don't know why but the past week has been tough for me! My morning workouts didn't happen, my calendar of things to do around the house got ignored and I just have watched the clock fly by in the evenings. Before I know it, it is time for bed and the repetitive days all start to blend together.
I'm in "slow" season at work. Summertime means I stay in the office 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week. This summer I have loads more work to do than usual which means that downtime is minimal. I need that downtime after the insanity that was this school year. I have a to do list that makes my blood pressure rise to look at and it doesn't help that my mind can't seem to come to terms with the loss of our vacation next week. I was so ready to walk out of here Friday and say goodbye for a week. I needed this week to be away. Oh well. Time to move on.
This morning I pulled myself out of bed, talked to my cat who looked so comfortable sleeping in bed with me and forced myself to the gym. Once I'm out the door, there is no going back although I do miss the extra sleep. I just need to get back into the routine because I have no other option. And tonight when I get home, I plan to put some chicken in the oven (thank goodness for a "cool" day today!) and do some housework while it cooks. It feels so nice walking into a clean house so I don't want to fall too far behind on my cleaning calendar.
I'm not going to lie. This weekend, especially the 4th is going to be hard. We should have been leaving Saturday night and Monday evening should have been spent in DC watching fireworks. I'll be spending the morning at the local parade, going to my sister's house for a BBQ and watching the not super impressive fireworks in my town from my backyard.....with a glass of wine in hand. And red vines (thats a family tradition). I'll be wishing I was back east with my husband but I'll get through the day and look forward to leaving on our trip a few weeks later. Please time, fly by!!!!
