Tampa: The new vacation destination
Wednesday, August 19, 2009
Our second set of house guests left for the airport this morning. And we've only lived in this home for 2 months. I was told by different people that when I move to Florida we'll have lots of people visiting. So far, we're not proving them wrong.
I've realized many things happen when we have guests staying in our home.
1) I throw all routine out the window - bedtime, wake up time, laundry, dishes, cooking
2) My healthy lifestyle takes a big back seat - I don't want to drink my water, don't want to eat the right thing, don't want to exercise. It's like I've convinced myself those things will take away from the enjoyment of our friends. My body decides that I'm also on vacation and I can do what I want until vacation is over.
3) Can't think of a third, but I always like to write things in threes.
So, the friends are gone, and I'm hoping to get back on track again. The kids start school on Monday and I'm hoping to gain more control over my time then. I can always hope.
