My Vacation Report

Last week I was on vacation and before you ask I will tell you that NO I did not leave the city. That does not however indicate a lack of holiday fun on my part. I had truck loads of good times and by the time I rolled out of bed yesterday I had that itch to get back to work. Strange, I know. Particularly given that many of you out there would rather slit your wrists with a hangnail than step foot into your office - and for that I apologize. It does indicate good things to me though - that I am quite content and stimulated by my work, and for that I am very grateful. It was my first real holiday (other than sick days and conferences) since I started here at the Music Factory, so it could have gone either way.

So here's a quick run-down of what I managed to accomplish on my 10 days of freedom time:

1. Planned the bf's bday party and bought him several lovely gifts
2. Cleaned out and reorganized my closet and dresser (ps. I'm in need of another clothing swap soon girls)
3. Picked up and installed my PVR - subsequently altering the course of my tv viewing habits forever
4. Watched and enjoyed the first season of Dexter - subsequently resulting in several sleepless nights
5. Bought some quality olive oil in hopes of making some quality pesto - pesto is on next weeks list
6. Ran everyday
7. Purchased, read and loved the novel Mystic River (I'm a few years behind, I know)
8. Listened to a couple of library audio books while scouring Queen Street
9. Bought the entire fall line from Joe Fresh (or at least it feels like it) except for the shoes which feel like giant plastic clamps wrapped around my feet
10. Rented a Mini Cooper and fully participated in a bout of road rage during the Gardiner closure
11. Got together with friends for some delicious food and free flowing beverages
12. Had afternoon naps.

All in all, a fabulous time.
