Eye twitches are no fun. Last week my eye twitched every day throughout the day. It wasn’t just in the afternoon when I had already put in 6 hours behind a computer monitor. It was right away in the morning, throughout the day, and into the night. My neck was cracking as usual, I was stressed out at school, my jaw started to hurt, vacation couldn’t come soon enough.
And a full vacation is what I got! I flew out on Saturday with my family, our friends joined us that evening, and we’ve had some great days in the sun, plus wonderful evenings. I’ve become less about drinking as many beach side cocktails as possible, and more about relaxing. So far I’ve gone on a run each morning, I’ve done water aerobics twice, attended a cooking class at one of my favorite restaurants, and completed some MBA homework. I had other computer plans, but it appears that hasn’t quite gotten done. Instead I’m maximizing my sun time.
Its hard to believe that we only have 2 days left before we after to pack it up and fly home. I’ve met people who are retired and come here for anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months. And now that we are no longer timeshare owners I don’t think that will be in the cards for me….but I know that I need to up my retirement savings so I can do something similar!
Do you schedule your vacation time?
Would you ever travel for an extended period of time?
Or just do what sounds good in the moment and figure it out as you go?
