Tomorrow I head back to work. It feels weird to say this but I'm actually ready to go back. I don't normally feel that way but I do this year.
I'm not sure exactly why but I think it must be because I have done so little on this vacation. I know people think I am exaggerating when I say that but other than hanging out with Mr. Mellow on weekends and seeing a few musicals I did NOTHING. I can count on my hands the number of things I did. I watched TV and played on the internet and slept a lot. Plus dealing with all the medical stuff. Normally I go to a choir directors convention at the end of July that kind of kick starts my school thinking, but the district cut back that money. I think this also helped to go the whole summer with no school interruptions.
I'm ready to have a routine and a reason to get up and get dressed. I'm ready to be active. I'm ready to leave the junk food behind and eat healthier. I could have done all of those things this summer but I didn't. If I didn't have to I barely left my apartment.
But even though I am ready to go back to work, I will admit that I have started thinking about next summer. I want to go somewhere so trip planning may be in my future.
Let the year begin!
