I’m having a hard time getting my head back in the game (of life) after my paradise vacation. I miss the sound of the ocean. I miss the palm trees. I miss the clear, blue water. I miss the bright flowers that seemed to be forever in bloom. *sigh*
But real life is here.
I was rather productive at work the week I got back from vacation. Tasks had piled up and it felt good to tackle them — to move things from TO DO to DONE. This week has been harder. I guess because I’m not on a post-vacation high. I’m more on a holy-crap-I’m-not-going-to-get-to- go-on-vacation-again-for-a-long-time low.
And yet real life is still here.
I just need to suck it up and figure out how to focus. But focusing feels like your brain’s worst enemy when you NEED to do it. I feel like Sir Launcelot from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I just want to be whimsical and sing (be on vacation), but something keeps stopping the music. What’s stopping the music?
Okay, I’m going to stop complaining now. I have some good ideas for the blog this fall. Halloween is coming, which is always a fun time of year. Then the presidential election. [Which day is scarier?!] Then more holidays than you can shake a stick at. But I will shake that stick! I want to talk about celebrating secular and Pagan holidays that can include your non-Pagan kith and kin. Since that is part of the purpose of this blog and all.
Anyone have good advice on how to shed the dreamy, vacation state of mind? Or at least how to subdue it long enough to be productive?
