Coming Down from Vacation
Went to Colorado for spring break with the family and I’ll tell you, vacation really unplugs me. So far out of my routine, my mind disconnects and I lose track of the flow for everyday life. A good thing, I know (unless you have 100 things going on that need attention!).
But we can all use a break and what better place than the Colorado Rockies? Especially this time of year. Blue skies, warm temps, not much snow (but who noticed?). There was plenty enough on the ski runs!
I have a girlfriend who invites the family and I out every year to stay with her for a week and while we don’t always make it, we do enjoy the years we can. After all, this is the woman responsible for introducing me to my husband. Back in our younger day, we were on spring break, took a ski trip and spotted the handsome devil in a bar in Vail (not the advisable place to meet one’s future spouse, but suffice it say, 16 years and 2 kids later we’re doing just fine).
So we have somewhat of a soft spot for this location. And now that the kids love it (and my girlfriend, her dog, her sense of fun and spirit of adventure…), we all enjoy the trip! But alas, reality hits and the vacation ends and it’s time to return to the daily business of living. And now it’s time for me to move back into the “zone” and prepare for spring. I have vegetables to plant (and harvest — my sweet onions are nearly ready!), a WIP to finalize and prepare for May release, a blog hop to launch—and then of course there’s summer break to look forward. Hello beach, here I come!
Life is good. How about you? What do you do to unwind? Do you find it difficult to plug back in?
