It's been quiet here on ye old blog. My excuse, should I feel the need to make one (I don't, actually) is that I have been playing hooky. Hooky from work, hooky from my exercise routine, hooky from life, in general.
It started on Thursday, with a full day away from Day Job. I have reached the point in my PTO bank wherein I will no longer be able to accumulate hours, so, it was time to use a few, and, with nowhere to go and nothing to do, it made sense to do...nothing.
In my case, nothing meant puttering around the house, relocating my fairy garden (I really am becoming an old woman), pulling a few weeds (bindweed remains my nemesis), and napping on the couch.
I would have taken the opportunity to work on my summer tan, but, in case you haven't heard; Colorado got two feet of snow on the first official day of summer, and, while we didn't get any at our lower elevation, we still got the wind, the rain, and a dip in temperatures that more closely resemble March temperatures than June. Mother Nature and I are not on the best of terms.
Friday, I returned to work for a few hours, mainly to attend my monthly Board meeting; had it not been for the meeting, my ass would have remained firmly planted on the couch, which is where it spent the majority of yesterday, and, up until this very minute, today.
I do fully intend to pry myself up just as soon as I hit publish on this post. I have two baseball games to attend, work to be done at the hardware store, and, a return engagement with the treadmill at the gym.
Three days off is enough to motivate me to get back into the groove.
