Hmmm...A Guilty Pleasure?




Den...my main man...was away all week! To put this in perspective...we got back from Colorado late Saturday...Den had to mow the lawn on Sunday and then watch the Eagles and the Broncos play some sort of football...he went to work on Monday...came home...packed...and has been gone all week...he just now landed at the Philadelphia airport and is on his way to the office now...and will arrive home at his usual time.

Patty...on the other hand...has lounged around, read, shopped a bit, sat on the deck with Lucy, did bits of laundry daily, read in bed, read on the deck, read in the sunroom, read in the family room, watched a marathon of Real Housewives Of Miami...yikes...I am forever changed from that...organized a downstairs closet...taken the week off from real exercise, ran the dishwasher once, ate crackers for dinner once and spent most of the week blaming our trip for putting me behind in everything. I also played with and brushed and coddled Lucy far more than ever because of my guilt for leaving her. I fiddled around outside, changed out wreaths and blogged. I spent umpteen hours following a random discussion on Amazon, too.

In my own words...I had no focus!

So...today is mad dashing around day...I need to empty trash cans and dust and make a fabulous dinner and get back in gear from my week off after vacation.

Whoopsie...I also must go buy stuff for that fabulous dinner! Oh me oh my!

Oh...and I still haven't unpacked my Colorado bag yet! Or put away toiletries!

Yikes!

Can you bounce back from a trip better than I can?

  1. I unpack as soon as I walk in the door, but I'm anal like that. When Carl goes out of town, I totally veg out.

  2. I unpack as soon as I get home too but that's because I am not the clothes horse you are! I have to wash the stuff since I don't have closets of other stuff to fall back on. A blessing and a curse.

  3. I, too, have to unpack immediately, being a bit OCD...but then again, I don't travel as much as you do. In fact, these days I seem to be avoiding it. Hmmm.....

    1. I don't know why I have not unpacked...I am such a neat and tidy person...but my bag is in my closet room...in a nice neat spot on the floor!

  4. I feel your pain. I just put a suitcase in the closet tonight that's been sitting in the middle of the living room for about two weeks...but it's still unpacked and full of clothes! Argh!!

  5. I unpack right away- but I am super OCD and so is my husband. But- I think your week sounds lovely since you got to relax and spend time reading and cuddling Lucy. Excellent! Hope your rushing around allowed you to get everything done. :)
