The first part of summer vacation is always interesting. I always have to recover from the school year. Sometimes I deliberately plan a trip to try to speed up the process. In past years I’ve gone to Colorado to stay with friends. I can always relax there and because I’m away from home, I don’t feel like I should be doing all of the stuff that needs to be done here.
This year, I’m just going about my normal business. I don’t have anything major scheduled right away. Next week I’ll be heading to Motown and then bringing Megan and Jack back with me. Yesterday I signed up for two summer classes. One is a field-trippy class like the one I took last summer. The other is online and I’ve already read the book. I’m planning a few other trips for later in the summer. And lastly, I’ll be calling a contractor to line up the bathroom remodel job.
I guess I’m not making a conscious effort to force myself to relax. I’m hoping it just happens on its own. I’m trying to get to bed at a decent time and wake up at a normal time. I ran this morning. So hopefully I’ll get into a regular schedule of exercise too. I’ve even cleaned. Wow. What’s happening to me?
