Staycation Day One

November 14th, 2019 at 02:22 am

It's actually been a long time since I took a staycation. I always mean to but it just hasn't happened for years. I had a bunch of PTO I had to use up or lose at the end of the year so I took some random days off. The way my schedule works, I only need to take off on a Thursday to get 5 days off in a row so that's what I did this week.

Today was day 1. Slept late. Like really late for me - 9:20, which was great because for some reason I was really exhausted yesterday. Did some cleaning around the house today including packing up a bag of clothes for Goodwill. DW and I went to Target for a few things and stopped at Goodwill on the way back to drop off the clothes and an old broken printer to recycle.

DD worked tonight so DW and I had a date night. We went to dinner at a place nearby that we've never tried but was on the 1,000 point list for Open Table. It was really nice, definitely a place we would go back to. Then we fired up Disney+. One of our goals with the new service is to catch up on the Marvel cinematic universe and see all the films we've missed. First up tonight was Captain Marvel. We enjoyed that.

No big plans for tomorrow except going to the gym at noon (DW has an appointment with her trainer). I have a number of things on my To Do list so we'll see where the day takes me.

    LAL - Yeah, we didn't plan anything for this time. In fact, I only booked this day off a few weeks ago when I was looking for days I could use my PTO. I'm perfectly happy actually having some down time. We are not the type to take relaxing vacations so when we go away, it's always a lot of activity and on the go sorts of things. This is a nice break.

    I absolutely love puttering around and doing simple small things uninterrupted from other things. I hope you really enjoy yourself. My next time off is when I'm looking forward to a quiet thanksgiving at the end of the month with no travel plans.
