My Week Off

Well, I’m back.  And I’m feeling pretty good about my week off.

Last week I . . .

-Worked on a gift for my sister.  Here’s a sneak peak:

-Worked on some of the details for Wyatt’s 1st birthday.

-Vacuumed (it’s amazing how that’s always the first thing to go when I’m short on time . . .)

-Cleaned out my refrigerator (it needed it).

-Renewed my dental hygiene license.

-Wrote a post on voting, just because I felt like it (coming soon).

-Got a chiropractic adjustment (man, practicing hygiene really does kink up my back).

-Played with Photoshop a little bit (like the new layout?).

-Did some consumer research for a bigger purchase I was thinking of making (ie. spent time online trying to decide which product to order).

-Took several lovely baths.  And washed my hair with some Dove Intensive Repair shampoo.  That stuff works miracles.

-Went on a date night with Derek – comedy night at our church to see Barnes and Miner.  They are a husband and wife comedy team, and the sanctuary was all set up like a comedy club, complete with the “brick” wall behind the comedians – it was a lot of fun!

-Watched “Courageous” with Derek on Saturday night – oh my goodness, guys, there were tears rolling down my cheeks.  Derek was even choked up.  It was good.


-Read all of your blog posts (I just didn’t comment, but I enjoyed every one).

As I review that list, it doesn’t sound like much, but it took a lot more time than you would think to do all that.

I am feeling pretty refreshed, but I’ve come to the conclusion that for me to completely recover from being “burned out”, I need a couple days vacation away from the state.  Preferably at the beach.  Which is not really an option.


But with the options I have, last week was just what I needed, and I’m more on top of things, so I’d say it was a successful break!

Those Question and Answer posts that I was tagged for are coming up soon!

    Nice to have a week off to catch up on life. We watched Courageous Saturday night too!! :) We saw it in the theater when Callyn was 3 wks and it was soooo emotional then, having just had her. I thought it wouldn't be the second time around, but it still was haha!
