We returned from a two week vacation yesterday. Rode through some lovely country, ate too many calorie-laden meals, spent too much time in a few too many casinos. In other words, we had a great time!

Don't get me wrong. I'm glad to be home. Some of those hotel beds weren't the most comfortable, and my waistline can't handle another chocolate frosted donut from the continental breakfast counter. It was nice to be able to grab clothes out of dresser drawers and the closet instead of rummaging through a suitcase.

However -- am I not supposed to be refreshed and ready to plunge back into my routine with renewed enthusiasm? Isn't that what vacations are for, to recharge the batteries? If so, I need to invest in a better charger!

I suppose I can blame some of this lethargy on my husband. He set his alarm last night, but didn't set mine as he usually does, and I never thought to check, so I overslept a bit. Luckily, since I work at home, nobody but me cares that I was late to sit down at the computer this morning. And now the morning is almost shot, and I'm almost ready for a nap! Talk about slogging on Slow speed!

So I'm declaring today a Recovery Day. Maybe I'll run a couple of errands, get a couple of loads of wash done, and generally see if I can wake up and get moving. Maybe a stop at the local coffee shop for a large Mocha Latte is called for.

Anyone else need a day or two to recover from Vacations?

I most definately need a couple of days to get back into the swing of things after a vacation. Some of my best recharcing vacations are the ones I spend at home.

I'm better this morning. Wasn't quite so hard to get out of bed. Many of the authors on this blog were in Dallas for the RWA National conference, which isn't a vacation, and who I'm sure are in the recovery stage as well! So I'm in good company :).
