Lack of Concentration

I’m sure everybody gets like this from time to time…just having an inability to stay focused on every day life. ESPECIALLY if there is a week-long vacation upcoming.


I’ve been having one long-ass week. Friday after work I’m driving 2.5 hours to be with Sunshine and then we’re flying down to Florida first thing on Saturday morning (“first thing” is a 6am flight). Vacation officially begins then as we bide our time waiting to jump on a cruise ship Sunday afternoon.

So where I’ve been a bit disenchanted with how work is going lately, I’ve been more and more preoccupied with going on this trip. I don’t even want to GO to work. I just want to call in sick and count the minutes until it’s time to leave.

Unfortunately, if I want to make some money to help PAY for this trip I’ll need to not only work, but work overtime.  It’s just with two days left to go, it’s brutal trying to focus on the tasks at hand.

The good news is that I’m packed and ready to go. I’ve got my documents handy and my clothes ironed (I’m nerdy like that…lol). I’m just counting down the hours until I leave.

I’m having a difficult time blogging, too. I just can’t seem to focus on anything but this bloody vacation (lol). Good lord…I’m almost 40 years old. I’ve traveled around the world in my lifetime, from London to California to Hong Kong. You would think that a one-week trip with my girlfriend wouldn’t be such a big deal.

Yet here I am, not wanting to bore everybody with my plans and itineraries for the next week (you’ll be bombarded with pics when we get back anyway).

Surely to goodness I’m not the only one who gets a little “day-dreamy” in the days leading up to a big trip like this.




Bah…is it Friday at 5:30pm yet?
