Utopia, on occasion

By: Emily Eileen Moreshead

The 4th has been and gone and back to work we go but I’ve been fortunate enough to have a couple of extra days off this week and it’s a lifesaver. I do eventually want to be able to take more time off from my paid nightmare called work but for now, an extra day means the world to me. Multiply that day and it is amazing! I feel like the Red Sea parted!

It is such as refreshing change to be able to unwind and relax, the sun on my face and a frosty beverage in my hand, without the daily drudgery of life. I know, I know…you gotta work to pay the bills…But for me, vacation time is very few and far between. I’m going to savor each moment. I want to remember lazy afternoons on my porch swing, watching old episodes of Unsolved Mysteries because you don’t need to go to bed quite as early as usual, relishing in time alone so that I can treat myself instead of always putting everyone else first.

Stay-cation vacation works wonders for my mood too which is an awesome plus. Take your deserved time, people. It’s well worth it and you deserve it. 20170704_125655
