I’m wrapping up a two week vacation that has taken me from beach to basement.
It’s true, I took a week off of work to clean out the basement. Sadly, to look at a before/after photo would not make it look like my time had been used wisely. Just about everything is still down there, it’s just in a different pile. BUT… our church rummage sale this year is going to be very, very blessed.
I’m wondering if anyone else out there takes a week off of work to do a different kind of work:
1) Have you ever ‘staycationed’ in order to work on a project? If no, would you?
Yes. In fact, a couple of years ago I took the week between Christmas and New Year in order to clean out the office and other odd jobs that needed to be done but never got done.
2) What project did you or would you tackle first?
The office needs to be shoveled out and organized again. It’s the place where we throw everything that doesn’t have a home.
3) Any other projects?
I would also like to clean out the cupboards in the kitchen and get some things arranged in a more natural order of how I use it. Oh and filing–the mountains of filing that need to be done. Oomph.
4) What are the pitfalls of a staycation for you?
I don’t work on the projects, I use it as an excuse to watch TV and movies.
5) Never mind this staying at home business, where do you want to go and what do you want to do there?
I want to go to Ireland, rent a place and stay for three or four months. Living, writing, and exploring. In fact that is my long term game plan: to pick a region and go there live there for a few months then come back home. Ireland is just a the top of the list.
You can see what projects other RevGals are up to here.
