Tomorrow, I go back to work. I wish I could type that with more enthusiasm. This past week off has been so relaxing and productive. The bean plant was finally removed from the garden (we had a bowl of beans to celebrate). I cooked pumpkins and made puree and a pumpkin pie. I discovered Sham (fake ham) and made deviled sham for lunches next week. I washed everything. I completely re-did my CV. I scrubbed the bathroom and replaced the bathmat. I lazed about on the couch and today, I lived in my pajamas. I may not be excited about the job I'm going back to, but I am a teensy bit happy about going back to work. I don't think I could keep up with this pace all the time. At the end of this staycation, I'm feeling a bit fat and lazy. It's time to get back in to a routine, even if it's not the ideal routine. But I'm heading into it all with a new attitude. I will kill them all with kindness. I will work through each day and perform all of my tasks to the best of my ability. I will cleanse my desk at work and my surroundings with salt and send all the bad energy to the plants (they thrive on energy cleanses-learned that in yoga teacher training). And at the end of the day, work will stay at work. Though, I will still be searching for a way out. I will find a way to be content with where I am in this present moment.

Let's see how long that lasts. No, wait. Wrong attitude! I'll let you know how great my new plan turns out.
