vacating

Today, I have, at various times, sat on the couch, in my dad's Lazyboy, at the kitchen table, and in front of the computer. Aside from at one point righting the Christmas tree, which spontaneously fell over, sitting is literally the only thing I have done. (Well, to be fair, there were also some periods of lying down.)

Someone please rescue me. Vacation is killing me.

I find that having nothing to do is grossly overrated. At least you rescued a fir in peril.

Janet said...

LOL! Go for a walk. Take your camera. Visit some friends. Help with the housework. Cook a gourmet meal.

Just because you have nothing to do doesn't mean you do nothing. You just do things of your own choosing at your own pace.

End of semi-solicited advice. (I interpreted the "rescue me" in the widest possible way.)

I'll trade you. You can come chase my kids around and I'll sit! It'll be great.

Gina Black said...

I do hope you are finding a moment here or there to eat, despite all this busy sitting.

You've just described my perfect vacation. Well, minus the tree thing.

Sounds like you've had it pretty tough!

OMG, this has been my day to. I've napped more then ever. It's been amazing. Odd thing is, still want to nap more.

Then there's this short story I need to finish.

Um. Read another book? Or, you could have my day: Scoop, haul, and dump three large wheelbarrows full of manure because I was out of town for five days and my critter sitter didn't do it. Don't forget the snow, wind, and below freezing temp. Also, wash, dry, and fold several loads of laundry, bake bread, clean the kitchen, take garbage to the dump, buy feed, pick up mail, cook dinner...

I'm not complaining at all. I really like that I got a lot done today despite the weather. I know how dreadful doing nothing can be. I once had foot surgery and had to sit (or lie) with my foot propped up for five days straight. It was hell.

Ugh, Charles, you can only imagine!!!

Elissa, I did read... sort of. In between dozing.

Gosh that sounds awful. (grin) I'm trying to simultaneously recover from a cold, and clean and sort massive stuff piles in my house. Makes me almost wish I went back to work sooner...

Enjoy, Moonnie... You'll be back at your desk before you know it.
Oh, and you might want to wipe that chocolate off your whiskers:)

Have you tried the Chair-O-Pult?

Combines ordinary sitting with extraordinary flying through the air at 150mph in a dinky parabola...

And my husband wonders why I looked at him like he'd turned into a loon when he asked about us taking a vacation. What? And die? No thank you.

Adventure vacations are fun! This summer I did a long weekend biking trip off-road on a moderate to difficult terrain. Do that and you won't have time to be bored of your vacation. :)

Ugh. I have no talent for vacationing, sitting, or being bored. My only use on vacations is driving people who can vacation crazy. I'm good at that.
