I’ve had some weird scheduling the last couple of weeks. I’ll work a few days, be off for one, then work a few more, then off again. One day on, one day off… you get the idea.
I’m not sure what I think about it. It’s difficult to work too many days in a row at the hotel, because it can be draining. But I find myself not getting much done with scattered days off. It’s easy to push the work off until the next day off.
Now I find myself on my last day off before vacation. We leave next week, and I have tons to do to get ready for it.
What did I do instead?
Went for a run. (see disclaimer)
Took the motorcycle for a spin.
Caught up on my blogs.
Took my car in for an oil change.
And baked some super awesome snicker doodle cupcakes.
** I’m not sure you could call my run a run really. I stepped out of my door at 6am and was smothered with heat and humidity. I managed to make it 2 miles, but at my turn-around point, I declared a truce. The heat and humidity were too much. I spent the 2 miles back doing intervals. Some walking, some jogging, some lunges, some sprints. I returned home looking like a drowned rat.
The motorcycle run was better. We left as soon as I was cool enough from my run to put on some jeans. Once we were on the go, I was very comfortable. After some pancakes and eggs, we returned home. The sun was a little hotter at this point, but once again, not bad while we were moving.
Now, let me tell you about the snicker doodle cupcakes…
On second thought, just take a look.
Yeah, I shoulda been planning for the trip, and catching up on laundry, and preparing the house for our departure.
But what’s the fun in that?
The Tuesday night before we leave, I’ll probably be rushing around like a mad woman trying to get everything done. If it doesn’t get done, I don’t plan to worry about it. Planning for vacation shouldn’t be stressful. Besides, I’m sure my 18 and 19 year old, who have decided to stay home, will take care of it while we’re gone….
I’m sure of it.
But just in case I’m wrong, I’ve taken the day after we return from vacation off as well.
