Great vacations are taken at home


I hate to share how excited I am about the idea of spending some vacation time at home. I needed to take about 98 hours or I would lose them. I got close to scheduling all 98 hours. I think I am off by about 2 days.


So I am thinking about what I am going to do…at home…for over 2 weeks (including company holidays):


*taking lots of naps


*trying new recipes from the Cooking Light cookbook I just received


*scheduling some cooking classes at PCC


*catching up on the the reading I have stacked up in my office


*finishing Empire Falls, which I started months ago


*actually using my Netflix subscription


*maybe blogging a little


*organize something…we know this will happen whether I plan it or not


*send my holiday cards out


*get back on my gym routine…for real…and lose the 2 pounds I gained


*finish all my kitchen planning (I have yet to buy a sink, hardware and stuff)


*hang out at Victors coffee and look cool or at least interesting..over-caffeinate


*go with my friend Ann to Costco (yay…that recent blog post resulted in one of my friends agreeing to be my Costco buddy)…yippeee….over stocking my cupboards!


*pretend like I am not going to check my inbox just a little


*Listen to my downloaded book: The Wisdom of Crowds, which someone recommended to me last year and I never got around to reading (I think I’m going to start doing my non-fiction reading via audio books…smart huh?)


*turn one year older….zzzzzzzzzz


*maybe I’ll really learn to knit if I can find someone to show me how to do more than cast on. Where’s my friend Suzanne?


*eat some of that beef I just ordered

    What about spending some time at a spa?  

    I usually fill my free time up with things like "scrub the tub" and "swiffer the house."  Sad but true.

    Yeah, I’m the same…I’m going to try to get that stuff done onthe first day. I forgot about the spa…adding that to the list. I am literally going to print out the list.
