There really is nothing like it. Recharging batteries, regaining perspective, reintroducing sanity, and revealing your calm side once again. Yes, I do have a calm side. I'd forgotten about it, really. After a whirlwind week of three days in the office (Hey, the timing was bad. Sometimes that just happens.), frustration abound with regard to my personal life, and a definite "New York is pissing me off" day, I boarded a plane again yesterday and by 8 pm I was drinking margaritas and eating fabulous Mexican food. I'm not "home" but it was definitely like going home: the food, the laid back atmosphere, the flip flops, the best friend of twelve years. Bliss.
BFF is at work today so I am chilling like I have never chilled before. Well, if chilling involves Jillian Michael's 30-Day Shred (so nice to get my body moving again after a bit of a hiatus!). This morning I ate my cereal while watching Tristan and Isolde on TV and throwing a ball around for the dog. Then I had my date with Jillian and now I am showered, refreshed, and settling in to watch Gone With the Wind, sip water all afternoon, play around online, perhaps
take the dog for a little walk, and (gasp!) write!
Tonight we are going for dinner and to a dance performance. Tomorrow a theme park and a piano bar. Sunday, my first hockey game. Thank GOD for vacations and great friends. They make me feel like a real person again.
Do you have a fun and/or relaxing vacay coming up? Share!
