So I am on "staycation". My boss forced it really, she looked at what I had used my time off for in the past year (holidays, Keenan's audition, bereavement) and decided I needed some "real" time off, with no commitments. I thought it sounded delicious. Actually, not having a schedule is more difficult than I remembered.
So far I've accomplished some things that are notable on staycation...
reverse happy hour at 180 with Bret & Keenan
the end of guiding light (boo-hoo)
drinks w/ Josie & John (coworkers)
received banana bread & cookies from mom (yum)
got my car worked on (it ran great for 2 days, now it's crap again)
coffee at coffee station
coffee, lunch and drinks w/ Josie, Juan & Kim.
football, fantasy football and chili-making
baked banana bread and made green beans from the farmers market
browsed food magazines
Starbucks, again (hey it's my vacation!)
sent Brooks' birthday present (Aug 3)
sent Grandmas' birthday card (only a day late)
went to Time Travelers Wife (alone w/ gummy worms, popcorn and a small sprite) (2 stars)
going to lunch with Keenan
sleeping in (much-needed)
also I am required to keep my work phone off, no email, no "checking-in". after detoxing from the ever-ringing I am feeling quite grateful.
