Today I must admit to being a bit of a garbage human this weekend. I had a four day weekend scheduled because in the before times I used to go Florida this weekend for the annual boat parade. Alas, here in the after times that's not a thing right now. But I have something like 120 hours of vacation left that I can't rollover so I kept the days off.
It wound up working to my advantage as Artie needed to see the vet just for some bloodwork and the tall kids also had a visit scheduled. Both happened Friday and it was nice to already be off work. So I figured Friday would be dedicated to all the fur kids but the other three days I planned to do so many things. Like wrap all the presents that have arrived. And clean the house. And maybe get back to cleaning out the house. (I made great strides during lockdown but then abandoned the project and it's a real issue now...)
So what did I actually get done? Not much of any of that. I did get some gifts packaged up to ship, but I'm still waiting on the holiday cards to arrive so they haven't shipped out yet. Did not clean the house. Did not clean anything out. BUT I did catch up on the laundry! Washing it anyway. Putting it away can't really be finished until I go through all my crap. I have every season of clothing in every part of my house. Clothes just everywhere. That's going to be a big project. Hopefully I will not be such a garbage human when I'm off between Xmas and New Years.
Honestly though, I don't feel that guilty about being a garbage human for a few days. The days are generally long between the horses and work, and it was kind of nice to just spend some time not feeling rushed and kind of just doing what I want to do. (Obviously that includes riding, I did get that accomplished all weekend!)
Do you guys ever just slack off completely? Just me? Can't be!
