Free of the rest of the year

Today is the last day of work for me. I have the next two weeks off. I have a generous vacation days due to my savvy negotiation skills. But being a project manager does not mean I can ignore my emails, so for each day I will be checking in here and there. I want to conclude two projects before the end of the year so I have to make sure that they are in the wrapping up stages.

But it still means that I can sleep in and spend the day doing things that I want to be done. It is more of a staycation and I can't wait.

The main projects of my days off are to clean the condo from room to room. I created an aggressive list with what needs to be done and starting on Monday I am tacking the kitchen and bathroom. Tuesday will be spent in the office. Wednesday is a cooking day and doing the living room. The following week is the bedroom. I want to start the New Year in a gleaming spotless home.

I am also cutting myself some slack because I want to rest, catch up on some movies and do some beading. I also want to spend some time in a museum and making some yummy goodies.

It is going to be such a fulfilling way to end 2009.

So, what you're basically saying is I might have a clean home if I actually had a vacation from work? What a novel concept!

I have a similar room-by-room cleaning list for our condo, only we'll be doing a little bit every weekend after the new year ... that's what working the last two weeks of December will do to a girl.

Enjoy your time off - sounds like the perfect balance!
