How to appreciate your job

I’ve found a new easy way to appreciate your job–take a vacation and stay home! As you know, I work for a University, and am on spring break this week. This is the first year I’ve actually had a real break during spring break, and I was very excited to stay home and relax while getting a few things done. Well, it’s Friday, and after almost an entire week off, I’m ready to go back to work! Don’t get me wrong, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed taking time off, but there’s nothing like spending a week at home to make you appreciate your job :)

I’m looking forward to getting back on my normal schedule, and having a routine again. I NEED routine or else it’s very difficult for me to get anything done. I don’t operate very well when I have a lot of time on my hands-I get much more done when I’m on a time crunch and have to stick to a schedule. For these reasons, I’ll be glad to get back to my busy life :)

This week I have had a lot of time to relax, and It’s been great. I’ve gotten to sleep in, casually get my workouts done, and clean my house! However, I’ve also done a lot of laying around, sitting on facebook, and eating lots of sweets! Again..I’m ready to go back to work :)

I’m looking forward to today though. My friend is coming over to bike with me, then I’m going to a chiropractic appointment. I am definitely in need of an adjustment! I think my test week last week was harder on me than I realized. After the chiropractor, I’m going to go shopping for the next month’s worth of meals! John and I periodically do food prep for a month’s worth of frozen meals. We do all the prepping in separate bags, and then freeze them. When we need a meal, we just take it out of the freezer, and cook it! We are planning on doing our prepping tomorrow, so I want to get the shopping done today.

How do you guys usually spend your stay-cations? Or, those of you who are stay-a-home moms, how do you force yourselves to get things accomplished around the house? Or have you also developed a rigid routine that you stick to? I’d be interested to hear your thoughts!
