Back to the Real World

My vacation is over, so I'm back at work and living in the real world once again.

I'm glad that I had the chance for a vacation. I loved seeing the ocean and walking on the beach and just generally unplugging and relaxing. I want to try to find ways to relax and unwind on a more regular basis, even if it means just means going to a movie with friends. After all, one of my goals for this year was to take more days off. Working seven day a week with no breaks wears a person down and isn't healthy, physically or mentally.

I had to say good bye to the beach. I hope I'll be able to visit again.
I scheduled myself a transition day, so after arriving back in Chicago Saturday evening, I had all day Sunday to decompress (flying terrifies me), run errands (I had no food in my refrigerator), and try to get back on my usual routine (including my weekend long run) before returning to work yesterday.

I already miss seeing the ocean each day, but there is one thing I missed while I was in North Carolina. My silly cat Hannah.

I missed this furry face.
The best part about being back home is being with Hannah. She was not please that I went away, but she seems to have forgiven me.
