I had a week off; seven days in a row. Once they arrived, I decided to wallow in doing absolutely nothing.

I have a huge capacity to waste time and be very lazy. I slept late. I took naps. I surfed TV channels. I did not read. I did not write. I did not go anywhere. I stayed off of my computer. I did only the bare minimum to survive.

So, now the question for me remains: was this mental break beneficial? We'll see. I needed to feel like I have control over my time. Since my days are usually so full of doing things I have to do, I decided to do only what I felt like doing, which was nothing.

I go back to work this morning. I am looking forward to it, in that it will get me back into a routine. I get more done when I go to work. When I have a seemly unlimited expanse of time in front of me, it slips past within a blink of an eye.

I apologize for worrying anyone.


  1. Hey Nessa welcome back! Am so glad you're oright.

  2. welcome back. its awesome to be able to do nothing till you get sick of doing nothing.

  3. Hey, we missed you. Everyone needs time off from the internet. Vacation is a perfect time. Welcome back!

  4. Nice to have you back, Goldie. I missed ya.

  5. Hugs...We all need a bit of time we can declare our own. The longer we go without having it, the bigger a chunk we need when we finally take it.

    You should have email and in 2-3 days you'll have yummies.

  6. Jenn: Thanks. Sorry for the worry, but I needed to be very selfish.

    Lemon: Thanks, and I was getting VERY sick of doing nothing, but I forced myself to stick it out; D

    Dabich: Thanks. Hopefully I'm recharged.

    Grunty: Thanks, you're sweet.

    Serra: Thanks, I did need a big chunk. I am so excited. Can't wait.

  7. I agree with everyone else. I unplug every once in a while, too. No phone. No computer. I like to take in a little bit of nature, too... even if it is just watching the bugs fight over who gets to sit on my deck chair. :-)

  8. I am glad it was a vacation and not something serious. Selfish is actually very healthy in balanced quanities. Glad you're back!

  9. Mr. Fab: Excellent term.

    DCMM: Yep, I must learn to do it sooner.

    Quilly: Thanks.
