In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. ~ Proverbs 3:6

Back to work I go.....

           Well, it's been nice, but it's back to the real world today.  With the exception of our little getaway, the past nine days have been full of whole lot of nothingness, and I don't feel bad for that one bit.  I didn't make a to-do list while I was on vacation (I know, it's so unlike me), I didn't do any school work (I'm sure I'll regret that later), I didn't go to the gym or watch my calories (that's bound to catch up with me), and I didn't make the house perfect by cleaning or doing any other house projects (yeah, don't really feel bad about that one). 
       Usually, I spend my days off of work by trying to do million little things here and there, but nope, not this time.  This time I relaxed.....and I have to say that it was nice.  I did some reading here and there, I journaled quite a bit, and I caught up on my blog.  
      I have to tell you that I could get used to being a stay-at-home wife, but when I mentioned it to Matt, we didn't see eye to eye;)  He informed me that if I was a stay-at-home wife, then I wouldn't have been able to do some of the shopping I did for myself last week, and we wouldn't have extra money to spend on the house or my many projects that I keep coming up with for around the house, and we wouldn't have been able to take our little getaway either.  Ahh, yes, I know he's right.  My job brings extra spending money into our budget, but a girl can dream can't she?
      Well, dream over, because it is on a Monday morning.  Time to do some morning reading with a cup of coffee, hit the gym and get ready for work. Yep, vacation is was nice to have a few days with nothing to do, but today's to-do list is already getting full.  After work, I'll hit the library, go for a walk in the park, have dinner with the hubs and work on my blog a little before going to bed and waking up tomorrow to do it all over again.  But that's really ok,  because I'm thankful to  have a job that I enjoy and a week's paid vacation.  Yep, life is good:)
