As you know I went on a vacation for just a few days last week. Well, when I returned, it was as if I’d been gone for weeks, because I just couldn’t get myself back into the routine. Instead of cleaning my house last Saturday I just sat and read. Oh, I did some picking up so the house didn’t look too bad, but I didn’t vacuum – and with a Border Collie shedding all over the place I usually vacuum twice a week – nor did I go through mail, pay bills or go to the grocery store like I should have. Nope, that book was read, and another one started before the end of the weekend.
This week has pretty much gone the same way. I did manage to vacuum and wash my floors, but it was done only because there was a serious issue – they were incredibly filthy. If I didn’t have this blog to write nothing would have been written. Destiny (the Xbox game) called, and I answered. If I had my way vacation would have lasted forever. I only cooked because if I hadn’t I wouldn’t have eaten. And I do like to eat.
I’ve finally gotten myself back under control. I’ve written out my goals for the weekend – Spring Cleaning time is upon me; a second and third chapter calls. All I have to do now is follow-through – and we all know how easy that is!
Has anyone else had such an issue after a vacation? What have you done to focus yourself back onto your goals? Let me know your tips and hints.
