Because mine started three days ago and so far the relaxation part has yet to commence. In fact, given the set of circumstances that have recently arisen, one could say things are actually more stressful than normal. It's all good stress, so at least there's that, but it's stress nonetheless. I haven't yet gotten to do any of the things you're supposed to do on vacation, namely sleeping in, taking naps or staring mindlessly into space contemplating life and mouth-breathing. I'm hoping today changes all that, as I've already gotten through what I needed to do today, Brian is working and I finally have some time to myself. I'm rather excited about it.
My agenda for the rest of the day includes a Target trip, coloring my trailerpark roots and doing some baking. Finishing the novel I'm reading and a long nap wouldn't be bad either.
I have a lot to say, I'm just not sure now's the right time to say it.
In the meantime, I hope everybody's getting their last-minute shopping done, going to see some Christmas lights and taking a few minutes to slow down and appreciate this fun time of year before it all rushes by and then it's over again for another year. I know that's easier said than done, and I'm trying very hard to take my own advice.
In the meantime, I'm going searching for Hannukah candles. Living in the heart of the Baptist-ridden South, this could take awhile.
Good Saturday to all and to all a good Saturday.
