Hello my WordPress lovelies. I don’t know about you all but I am exhausted. My husband and I got home a little after midnight and since I foresaw this happening, I texted my boss and
begged asked if I could have one more day off because I was pretty positive there was no way I was going to wake up 6AM and go to work. Because she’s amazing (and I think she really likes me), she told me the office will manage one more day without me and to stay home and rest.
Before we left Thursday, my husband set the heater to vacation mode. At the time it seemed like a great idea cause who wants to pay a heat bill when you’re not actually using said heat? But then I thought, well there will be two cats and my turtle in the house and they might get cold. My husband told me the cats would be fine cause they had fur and a giant sectional with a blanket on it and the turtle would be fine cause of her heat lamp. Okay, that’s true. Cool! Except then I thought about how it was going to be cold when we came home. And of course I thought this on the plane home when it was way too late….
Suffice to say all the animals are still alive 4 days later. The turtle turned into Jaws when I dumped some food in there and the cats were giving us the stink eye cause they were wondering where we’d been all this time cause we usually come home like clockwork everyday and they get to sleep in the bed with us every night. You know, I always wondered if animals could talk, what they would actually say because man, sometimes those are borderline killer looks.
Anyway, the main point of this post is vacations are awesome. Coming back to try to get your work and schedule groove, not so much. This was the first time I’d vacationed with my best friend and her husband so it was sort of a couples retreat. She and her husband hail from Maryland and we hail from Ohio. The weather difference between our northeastern states and Florida was about 40º F. It was borderline snowing when we left and we arrived to sunny, shed-your-layers, warmth. I’ll go into detail starting next week. I’m going to split up the entire trip over the course of 3 days without compromising Endangered Thursdays and Facebook Fridays.
The one thing about vacationing that I always look forward to is the supposed more time to enjoy or even read a book or at least half a book. I didn’t do any of that. I read maybe 4 chapters total. Its really sad but at the same time I can’t deny that I didn’t have the time of my life doing other activities. I’ve already accepted that I probably won’t complete my Goodreads challenge this year but hey, there is always next year! and the year after.. and the year after that….
I hope you all had a great week. I will try to catch up on posts that I’ve missed. If I missed a post of yours that you would really like me to read, just shoot me the link in the comments below. I missed you all and look forward to get back into my blogging routine. 🙂
P.S. Happy Halloween. Hopefully I get book mail today!
