This morning, I woke up when the alarm went off at 6:00 a.m., did my regular morning routines of turning on the altar lights, turning off the porch lights that had been on during the night, having a cup of coffee, feeding the cats, watching a bit of the morning news and getting ready to go to work. I had packed my lunch to take to the office, last night, so, in the morning, all I had to do was put it in the lunch bag along with a piece of fruit and I was on my way.
I said my morning devotions while I drove to work as usual and listened to the radio, afterwards. This morning, I also put gas to the car before I got on the freeway.
The morning at the office passed quickly, attending a regular weekly meeting, and answering the phone messages and e-mails that had come in during the 3 days I had taken off from work. The afternoon went by quickly, as well. And then, it was time to drive myself home, again.
Once I got home, I went through the mail, hyperventilated over the water bill (I hate the fact that the bill is now based on estimated use and not actual use), had some iced coffee, put water to the garden, fed the cats again, and chatted on the phone with a cousin.
Then, it was time to make and have dinner, pack my lunch for tomorrow, put away the leftovers, do the dishes, go on-line for a bit, and write this blog post.
It's amazing how easily one slips back into the regular daily program after being away for a few days, isn't it?
Do you find it easy to resume your regular daily program when you return after being away on vacation? Or do you find it harder to get back to the daily routines?
