I hope everyone is having a magical holiday season!
I sure did. My parents and brother came from NJ to spend a long weekend here, and my in-laws came over for Christmas dinner as well.
We even had a white Christmas… kind of. It started snowing Christmas night and Sunday morning we woke up to a few inches of snow.
Unfortunately, that lovely storm left almost 3 feet in NJ. My parents miraculously made it back this afternoon on one of the only flights. I was supposed to fly out today too so I could spend New Year’s with my BFFs. The flight cancelations are so ridiculous that I cannot make it out until New Year’s Day. So I canceled my trip since I’d miss my fun New Year’s plans I am so bummed, but I guess there are worse things than spending New Year’s with my husband
On Christmas morning my phone decided not to turn on (it’s still not fixed. I’ll spare you the details but hopefully I’ll be up and running tomorrow). With the hustle and bustle of hosting the holiday, I never reached for my computer. I was completely unplugged for 3 days and it was glorious. The last time I did that was on a cruise we took in September 2009. I stare at my computer for work for 9 hours each weekday and I’m seriously addicted to my blackberry. It was stressful being disconnected at first, but then I loved it. It was amazing to chat with my family and play cards(!) without hearing my phone buzz. I’m going to try to unplug a bit more often because it was such a treat
That being said, I’m very eager to get back into my routine. I feel relaxed for the first time in a long time and am actually looking forward to resuming work tomorrow. I also cannot wait to catch up with blog reading
Running has been sporadic to say the least. And cookie consuming has been monumental. I’m more than ready to get back into my regular workout routine as well
Do you ever unplug? Do you find it stressful or refreshing?
