As previously announced, I have vacation coming up next week. And as such, I have plans for that time.

Sure, a bunch of it will be devoted to the girls and finding something for them to do. But some will be me time, because, frankly, they can generally handle themselves, and the last thing they need is me hanging over their shoulder.

So what to do?

I’ve had a Netflix movie now for just over a month, and, I’m ashamed to say, Patrick’s been doing a better job at getting his movies turned around than I have. And, really, I’ve averaged about one movie per month over the last year or so…So right now, without adding any movies to my queue, I’ll finish watching everything I’ve got selected on DVD in 2023. Not good. Thus, watching my current movie, Red, will be one of the items on the list.

I’ve been hoping to schedule my nose surgery for next week, so I could get it done with and convalesce during a time when I’m already off of work. But, no call today from the scheduling nurse, which means either she forgot about me (though I did call to remind her), or she’s been unable to ask the doctor her questions. Sigh.

I’ve got a couple of things I want to do around the house–picking up, tidying up, moving, altering, streamlining…All things that have been nagging at me for a while.

In a perfect world, I’ll do a little reading and a little writing. We’ll see if the perfect world materializes, or if I blow it off as usual and decide I just don’t have the time.

And above all, I’ll try really hard to not think about work. It is time off of that, after all.

See you tomorrow.
