It’s be a long, trying, heartbreaking, exhausting summer and I need the next ten days to recharge my batteries and feel normal again.
Or what passes for normal in my case.
People keep asking me what I’m doing over my vacation and I tell them all the same thing:
I’m not the kind of guy who needs to scamper off on a wild adventure to feel like he is properly spending his vacation.
All I want to do is not go to work. Doing that will lower stress levels, minimize eye rolls, and allow me to catch up on my sleep.
I haven’t been sleeping well lately, so I’m thinking that not having to set the alarm for 5:30AM to get up and run before work will improve things in that area.
For those of you who need lists in order to feel alive, this is what I have planned for my much needed vacation:
Sure, it’s no cross country trip to Wally World with the fam, but it’s my idea of total vacation domination.
Writing is what makes me feel like I’m actually doing something with my life. Running makes me feel alive while also helping me to recapture my self-confidence. Relaxing is pretty self explanatory.
I’m sure I’ll do more than that, but if I didn’t, I would be perfectly content.
Home is where the heart is, and it’s also where I feel the most comfortable. I’m not a big fan of crowds, travel, or being in strange places.
Just give me my laptop, my running shoes, and a case of Snapple, and all will be well.
I will do my best to check in and update you on my (stay at home) adventures, but if you don’t hear from me, don’t be concerned.
All it means is that I’m too busy relaxing and the interns haven’t been able to figure out a way to coax me into blogging.
And if you’re wondering how excited I am about being on vacation, here’s the photo I posted on Facebook tonight…
How would you want to spend a 10 day vacation at the end of the summer? Do you prefer traveling over a staycation? Who wants to come hang out at The House on the Hill (Must bring Snapple!)?
