It’s August 28th, and there are 3 days remaining.
3 days remaining to:
- Set the alarm
- Be on a schedule
- Have to go to bed by 10:30 PM so I can get up at 6:00 AM
- Frozen meals at my desk for lunch
- Dealing with rush hour traffic!
This brings back memories of summer vacations when you couldn’t wait for school to be out so you could do anything you wanted to do. That’s where I’m at right now, waiting for work to be out, so I can do whatever I want to do, when I want to it. Sleep in, stay up late, not eat frozen meals, and not deal with rush hour traffic. I can make my doctor appointments in the middle of the day and not rush in late to work, or try to leave early. I can join the ladies for shopping excursions or luncheons, and I can go wander the store aisles at my leisure. I will start exercising (I promise), I will start preparing more dinners, and I will take some study courses on topics of interest, as I have no more excuses and ample time to do these things.
What I didn’t like about summer vacation when in school is that by the time you got to mid Summer all of a sudden you were looking for things to do, you were bored, and you started looking forward to going back to school. I sit here now wondering if and when that will happen to me regarding work. Will I jam-pack so much in the first few months that I’ll be sitting here early next year wondering what to do with myself, or will I pace myself and not run thru things faster than you can enjoy them just to get them done and checked off. This will be interesting.
Had a great day today! I talked with people and had the most pleasant conversations with them that I have had in 3-1/2 years that I have been employed at my company, isn’t that ironic? As I sat there talking with them I was thinking if only it had been like this all the time. Why is it that the grass starts greening up on the other side fence, when you’re ready to step onto the other side, that’s life?
I have said some goodbyes already as some people will be out of the office the rest of this week and did it all with no tears, hope I can continue this way for the next 3 days, will let you know.
Since there is only 3 days left to work that means I’m 3 days closer to leaving on our first trip. As we get nearer I’ll give you our destinations, but ultimately we’re heading to the Chicago area to visit with family, friends and previous co-workers. Keep you posted as I head down the new road I’m traveling.
