Busy, Busy, Busy!

200px-Colorful_spring_gardenI’m furloughed today and I’m actually okay with it.  It couldn’t be a better day (high 71, sunny, flowers beginning to bloom, etc.) and sometimes you just simply need a day to unwind.  I don’t have anything fun planned, but I do intend to play “catch-up”. 

The last two weeks have been absolutely wild.  Between countless baseball practices, grading deadlines and report cards, what seems like endless doctor’s appointments, and attempting to teach an intern as well as 120 high school students, I’m bordering on giddy about my non-paid leave. 

My plans are to vacuum, do an enormous pile of laundry, sit in the sun for a while, and hopefully read a little.  My husband took my car to the shop, so I can’t run any errands – yeah!    Also, I plan to talk very little as that seems to be what I do all day, everyday.  I want a vacation from talking. 

I know I’m not the only one who just needs a day to herself.  What do you do when you get a little time to yourself?  Is there a time of the year when you are busier than usual and need a break?

    I look at all the closets I need to clean and say, “Forget it – today is my day”! Then I take a daylong road trip. I make up for it by cleaning out the closets on the weekend.

    My busy time is almost always in the winter though, and this winter was colder and snowier than normal, so road trips for me. Yet.

    I think the winter time is the busiest for me…kids are inside, I’m trying to clean the house around their messes, huge piles of laundry because of school. What do I do when I get a little time to myself?? Read…I love to read and that is the most relaxing thing…I love to either sit in my comfy chair or outside in the summer with a great book.

    Winter is my busiest time as well at work, so when I have an unexpected day, it’s generally too cold to do much of anything outside, let alone to want to sit outside (brrr…). So, on those unexpected days off, I like to try to sleep late, or just drink some tea in bed for as long as possible. Then, while I’ll definitely do some reading, and extra pampering of my cat Princess, I’ll also try to get inspired and actually tackle one closet, drawer, or cupboard that I’ve been neglecting.
