The party’s over

Less than 24 hours before my vacation officially ends, I have to admit that it’s probably the best thing that could happen to me and I’m a little ready to go back to work.  I hate saying that, but it’s time to face facts, I’m too irresponsible to be left on my own to take care of myself.  When I’m working, I have a set schedule and that keeps me (as) organized (as I get) and on top of things, but when I’m not?  Yikes!  I don’t eat, I don’t sleep, I lose all ability to function.  After 12 days off, I’m exhausted and willing to throw in the holiday towel.

Eating and sleeping are two things that I severely neglect, two things that Chantelle and I have been working on for years.  I am a perfect angel when I’m at work.  I bring enough snacks to eat every two hours, as prescribed, and I usually get enough sleep.  Give me a few days off and that all goes out the window.  I’ll go an entire day without eating, forget to take my vitamins entirely and then I’ll stay up all night.  It sucks.

I never thought I’d say this, but I’m just a little excited to be heading back to work tomorrow.  At least then I can start to feel normal again.  In the photo, you’ll see what I had planned for my time off.  In reality, camping, drinking and hanging around has taken its toll on me.

More about how I passed my holiday time coming up…

    I know EXACTLY what you’re talking about. I’m wondering how my transition from here to Italy and back again is going to go based on this same premise.

  2. Courtney Says:

    I totally don’t want to go back to work. Yeah, I’m on a better schedule, but… it’s work!

  3. Nick Says:

    I don’t want to go back to work either. *sigh* Maybe the four of us should come up with a plan to be independently wealthy. I nominate Carly as idea-girl. I’m good with the details, but not so much the grand concept things…

    and that post above was me, on Nick’s computer.

    Okay, WTF? How do you forget to eat? I can never forget to eat. NEVER. I’m like a walking hunger machine.

    I know what you mean. I will be home and forget to eat but if I am at work I am starving! I wonder why that is. Maybe because I want to do anything but work and my stomach is trying to help me out.

    Toni: I wish you luck, you know I do.

    Dawn, AKA details girl, you missed the point I was making. I was “a little excited to be heading back to work tomorrow.” Foiled that plan, didn’t I? It was all in the details. 😉

    This is just another reason I should hang around you more often, Amy!

    Apparently Amanda should too! You in, VP?
