#Staycation2015 part 2

Thursday

I went to lunch with Hollie and drank several cups of coffee while wearing running clothes and my new snow boots–it wasn’t snowing but it was raining

I walked around my house with a shoelace and the cats went crazy. The amount of joy a shoelace can bring to a house with cats is incredible

Friday

Friday was the day I lit my peppermint bark candle (I love candles)

Phil and I walked around town and I proved to him that our town was indeed preparing for Christmas

Friday was also Friday the 13th, a black cat’s favorite day. Luckily, I have an adorable black cat who loves to spend Friday the 13th spreading cuteness everywhere

Junior wasn’t thrilled he wasn’t getting special attention so he took over the bathroom, also spreading cuteness

I also realized how much I just love my cats and how much I do sound like a crazy cat lady, but they truly bring me happiness on my worst days

I mean look how adorable they are ^

Saturday 

I cleaned my kitchen, it was gross.

I sat through a seminar on anger and trauma and how they are related to and can influence sports

I spent most of the day and night Saturday locked in my office trying to get caught up, and then ahead on school work. I did get caught up and until next Sunday I might stay ahead–Its debatable. Grad school is a never ending battle of staying caught up. Even when I am ahead I am somehow behind.

After a terribly long and draining day academically, I decided to put up most of my Christmas decorations! I love Christmas so I never hesitate to decorate, I also can’t see a time in the future when I’ll have a lot of time to decorate so I took advantage of this opportunity.

Sunday 

Once again I spent most of the day doing schoolwork, all day actually.

As #staycation2015 comes to an end with this blog post I am happy to report that I have learned a lot about myself. Not only did I get caught up on household chores and my graduate work, I discovered who I am when I am not tied to the daily obligations of work and the stress of my typical everyday life. That itself was liberating. I like who I am when I am free to be me and I hope that in the future I can find this happiness for more than one week out of the year. Its nice to be yourself 24/7 and even though I have to resume normal activities and normal life now I am going to do my best to be true to myself and be myself even in my life outside of #staycation because its not fair any other way.
