18 December 2013
The great Christmas-New Year holiday countdown continues tick tock tick tock and though I'm done with my present purchasing, I have yet to wrap a single thing. Plus I plan to do some traveling over the next week or so and determining what to pack for three locations has been a bit of a mental challenge - don't even ask if it'll all fit yet, I haven't gotten that far!
One thing I do know is that as we inch closer and closer to next week, my mind slips further and further away from the capability to do anything productive at work (sorry, work). Granted I look forward to seeing family and friends and sharing in cozy warm togetherness, but I really like the idea of being off work for an extended period. At the same time that pretty much everyone else I know is off work - i.e., new projects and requests don't pile up in my absence and my last days off won't be riddled with worried thoughts of what am I going back to?
(Those of you who have to work between Christmas and New Year's, I feel for you. I've been there myself flying back on Christmas day so I can be at the office on the 26th and it isn't so awesome. However, the office shenanigans that ensue during that week of lackluster work can be awful fun ...)
I'll look forward to fa la la-ing the chilly mornings away under the covers and guilt-free afternoons spent reading / sharing in good treats / or shoot, even staring off into the distance while I twiddle my thumbs if I feel like it. 'Tis the season!
