The vacation itself was nice, once the finances got straightened out. My wife loves the beach; I am a bit more "meh" about it, but I have a much easier time relaxing and being in my head wherever I am than she does. Still, it was very nice not to have to cook, clean or worry about the household for an entire week.
Of course, like an idiot I dove in with both feet yesterday: five hour drive home, four loads of laundry, cut and edge the lawn since I knew we were expecting rain today...I must have been out of my bleeding mind. I can barely type this up, much less be any kind of productive today.
Still, believe it or not, it was a nice rest...and it's good to be back.
