Personal: Vacation Status Update

7_4_14_MarkAddisonSmith-1Mark Addison Smith

I don’t know about you, but I always find that coming back from vacation is so much work. Why the heck does it take so long to get reacquainted with real life activities? I tried (and mostly failed) to squeeze in the following yesterday after a tiring travel day on Saturday (flight delays are so annoying, aren’t they):
– a pile of laundry that somehow managed to take almost a full day
– tidying and cleaning of the house even though I tidied and cleaned the house before I left (seriously, how much tidying/cleaning does one house need?!)
– finding room for new purchases (while cleaning out closets)
– putting away a gazillion little items that belong in a gazillion different places around my house
– visits with friends and family to share vacation stories and photos/get updated on news while I was away
– email time (I tried to keep my vacation very low-tech)
– grocery shopping (I didn’t quite get to this, but good thing I have parents who always give me food when I visit them.)

Yes, life is tough sometimes, isn’t it? (insert smiley face) Seriously, though, I’m so thankful that I had 2 full weeks to relax on the beach and tune out real life. I had a most excellent time in Florida and I look forward to sharing photos and stories soon. Now, tell me, what did I miss while I was away?
