Ahhhhhhh. Summer vacation. Something I’ve not had since I was a senior in high school. Something I have no clue what to do with! LOL Seriously, I’m a week in, have slept in almost every day and feel like I’ve accomplished next to nothing, even though I have. It’s an odd feeling. Even the few times I’ve been unemployed for any length of time, I didn’t feel this restless.
The initial thought was “Oh, I can catch up on my writing!” Had this break come during the previous job, it would have been no big deal. Now? I’ve been on my feet, active, walking 2.5 to 3.5 miles a day – just at the school – so sitting down to write is a HUGE task. I get maybe three paragraphs written and I have to stand up or move around. Good for the body, not so good for finishing a manuscript.
I know my teacher friends will laugh at this. The last month of school they all kept telling me to relax, don’t think about school, take a break. I tried. I really did. It lasted 6 days. I was going to leave the school related stuff until July to think about but, yeah, that’s not gonna happen.
I think I’m going to have to make a list (or add to my three existing lists) of small things that I can mark off so I feel like I’ve accomplished something!
What do you during your summers?
