96 hours

Well, as soon as I Wednesday evening ended, I did a whole lot of nothing. But it was a good whole lot of nothing.

Thursday I woke up late. Only to have one of my co-workers contact me to get some server blades working. So I called my boss, and my boss said he'd handle it and apologized for me being disturbed on my vacation time off. Around 1PM I got my eye exam done and knocked out of the way, and I have a new set of glasses being ordered which should come in about another days. My eyes are ok, but my vision degraded more, so its a new prescription. And I had my pick out my new frames, because she said they would look better on me. She helped me pick them out ahead of time from the previous week before. After , I did some grocery shopping and picked up some well needed things from the store.

Friday, I got up and the clouds were overcast, but it was still a warm day, so I was able to pick up my and we went to the beach. We hung out there for a couple of hours, relaxed, I got some sun, and we had a good time just chilling Lake Michigan. I also bought some sandwiches and some drinks and made it a picnic by the beach which was cool.

Saturday I did absolutely nothing and it was glorious. I watched the entire season 2 of Daredevil on Netflix, and I made a nice Italian chicken vegetable pasta salad because it was so damn hot outside, I couldn't go out to do anything.

Sunday, had a major storm roll in in the afternoon, so I spent my day watching part of Season 3 of Daredevil and doing laundry. Plus I got some KFC for dinner. As I get older, I'm noticing KFC is more greasy than anything, so I didn't eat as much of it as I liked. I wanted grilled, but my mom is stubborn and likes original recipe better.

Throughout the whole weekend, I didn't look at any internet or phone hardly throughout the weekend. I think I needed because I just needed to get away from technology for a while and catch my breath and just relax. I didn't watch any news either, which I think helped my stress levels drop considerably. My whole 4 days off was nothing but me trying to unplug and unwind and I did a pretty good job for the most part just trying to get myself centered and back to normal.

On the plus side, I have another 3 day week this week and another 4 days off due to the early holiday weekend, which I most likely will be trying to figure out what to do again. But it was great to just get away and not do much of anything. However, I'm back for now and posting again for the time being.

Who can you call on to save the day?

Why none other than...

I was thinking about that, but food keeps whispering for me to eat it.

I stopped watching news a while ago. Now I prefer to read it, a whole lot less drama and stress.

I like to unplug, work in my gardens, read, hike etc. Going camping this summer so will enjoy that down time.

From time to time, I have to stop watching the news because it's mostly negative. Because I'm in a tech world, I normally am plugged in a lot, but when I go on vacation, I try to completely unplug and not watch the news or go on the internet. Having that away time from the news and the internet is good for me.

I never get time to myself! My grandson wakes between 5:30 and 6 am everyday❤. He wants me up when he gets up and is very vocal about it🤣🤣 He takes a 45 minute nap through the day and goes to bed at 8 pm. Then my daughter goes to bed around midnight, THEN I get time for myself🤣🤣

Yikes. That would be tough to handle. Although I get up at 6:10 M-F, every day like that? That's rough.

So when you get stressed, what do you like to do to unwind and relax? When you have time off, what do you like to do to relax?
