I am back to work after a wonderful week off. I love my job but I need a break now and then. I did what I wanted to do which was absolutely nothing. This job requires getting up at 3 am so I am usually in bed by 8. The thing I love to do on my vacations is stay up late and sleep in late. I was up until after midnight each night and slept in until after 8. I was in heaven.

I did do some laundry and took care of household things but concentrated on eating popcorn with my daughter and playing with my grandson until he passed out each night. I made a vow to myself to not touch my email or Facebook for the whole week and it was awesome. I found that I loved being off the grid. I found that living life instead of posting about it was much more fun. If you truly want to get away mentally you need to try this. I found that I really didn't miss knowing who was eating at Village Inn or who was mad and not going to take it anymore or

invited me to play Lucky Slots. It was a great week away from everything.

I am back and plugged in but my hand is on the cord and look forward to when I can unplug again. Live your life and remember what is and isn't important. Find your happy.
