Vacations are a very good thing, but sometimes re-entry is hard. This is one of those sometimes.
One of the best things about vacation was that I “pre-planned” blog posts. It was great because all I needed to do was plug-in a photo or two and add some details to the post, then we would tune out and head off for the day. One downfall is that I have lots of catch up to do – on comments and on all your blogs! I am working on that catch up!
Catch up on other things is equally challenging. Grocery shopping, laundry, and yard work are all clamoring for attention. I am prioritizing grocery shopping so happy hour is not dismal tomorrow, then laundry is up next. As for the yard work? I will get to it when it stops raining! Ha!
I really liked how well the blog pre-planning went and I especially liked some of the impromptu photos I got with my new iPhone! I also took a ton of photos on my Canon, but I have yet to download them to my PC yet…however, I have begun to rough out blog posts for the remaining days this month AND, yes, I am even thinking about how to switch things up for NaBloPoMo. (Because you know November is looming around the corner!!)
Those are my 3 things for today. What about you? What things are pressing in your world today!
Oh, and if you want to see more thing inspiration, you will find a plethora of that over at Carole’s!
I love going on vacation. But, oh how I hate the re-entry! Here’s hoping you have an easy one. XO
I was surprised (and delighted!) that you posted while on vacation. I don’t think I’ve ever done that, and I’ll also admit that catching up on blogs that I’ve missed is something I don’t do very well. I am glad that you’ve got your priorities set; a good happy hour will help to ease re-entry!
Post-Vacation-itis is real. Can’t be too hard on yourself!
I’ve often said that I need a vacation to deal with coming back from my vacation — reentry is so hard! When I can, I try to plan to come back prior to a weekend or with at least one day before going back to work so I can feel like I’ve got a handle on things before I’m thrown back into the regular crazy schedule.
Oh yeah. Take it easy, there, Kat! You seem to have your priorities straight. 😉 NaBloPoMo is fast approaching!! While I usually post off-the-cuff, I sometimes plan a bit — though never more than a day or two ahead. Sometimes, like this (frazzled) week, even that gets away from me and I post TWO posts (meant for two days) on the same day!
Re-entry blows, I agree. NaBloPoMo. Oh boy.
I am still “re-entering!” Mostly because of the 3 hours’ time zones change…can’t seem to get my mind and body to sync…For sure one needs food and doing the laundry always brings 5 stars…such visible satisfaction.As for NaBloPoMo…I am also hatching a plan ‘tho’ I’ve been NBPMing since Nov 2016.
I had a staycation for two weeks and am struggling to get back into the groove. I even forgot my class schedule and had to consult the master schedule to refresh my memory.
Oh boy do I feel your pain – I played “re-entry” twice in the past two months … and I’m still playing a little bit. Look forward to seeing what you might mix up for November! (p.s. I just put High Sierra on my Mac and the photo editing improvements look interesting – can’t wait to try them out!)
You did a great job of staying in touch with just enough to keep us here daily. Preplanning is a great way to stay in touch. Reentry is tough especially when one must hit the ground running!
I find after a vacation that it takes me at least three to four days to be back on track. So much work to leave and come home to relax. Maybe that is why I like to stay home so much??
