An unscheduled vacation

By Katharine Swan On Wednesday, October 27, 2010 At 11:07 AM

My husband took last week off from work.  We weren't planning on going anywhere, and in fact it was a fairly last-minute decision — he asked for the time off about a week beforehand.  He was getting stressed out at work and needed a little break.

I was planning on working while he was off.  I had a light week scheduled, so I figured I would work some short days and spend the rest of my time with him.  Ha.  I ended up getting very little done — my resolve to work fell apart by about Tuesday.

It was a great week.  We shopped together and got some things for the house, and did some upgrades to the bathroom that we have been talking about doing for ages.  How many husbands want to spend their time at an antique mall on their vacation?  And now you see why my will power to work failed me!  Who can resist temptation like that?

Luckily I'd only had a light workload last week, so I was able to more or less get away with it.  I have some catching up to do this week, on client work as well as getting ready for NaNoWriMo, but nothing I can't handle.

What about you?  Have you ever taken an unscheduled vacation?  How did it turn out?
