When I realized that I would be gone for almost two weeks for my South America trip, I decided to clear my schedule for the week following. Being unemployed I knew I would need to focus on applications, and following up on whatever emails came in that I wasn’t able to deal with while out of the country.
My first few hours back in Minnesota included a phone interview, then the first full day I spent the morning at Social Media Breakfast, and then the weekend was blissfully sitting on the deck with my brother. The photo above was my view for Saturday and Sunday, much needed peace and quiet.
Johnny loves pictures, so we had to snap one after I picked him up from work one day this week. And while I love that my bike is in the car, I wish I felt good enough to ride it! I was sick on my trip and finally went to the doctor on Wednesday. Turns out I needed a Z-pack, which I should have just bought in South America when I saw a million pharmacias.
Thursday was a long day of interviews. Once the stress was over I celebrated with a Smack Shack lobster roll before heading back up north. Now I’m just debating whether or not to attend All Pints North tomorrow. I’ve been craving a Duluth trip, but not sure I want to go on a weekend and deal with crowds.
Have you ever cleared your schedule so you can see what happens?
