The Afterness



Vacation's over and I'm feeling bluesy.  Nothing unusual about this. Since early this morning, I've read dozens of articles about post vacation stress disorder and how to pull out from the back-home-again doldrums.  These are some steps I can take to tackle PVSD that I've gleaned from the research:

1.  Unpack as soon as possible.  (This makes sense and I might do it.) 
2.  Take a walk.  (This is the antidote to all problems in the self help literature.  Annoyingly, it usually does have a positive effect on my mood, so I might consider doing it.)
3.  Clean up your house.  (Not going to argue that a clean up could benefit my overall mood. But do I really have the time?)
4.  Appreciate the place where you live and think about how great it is.  (I do love this place, but I'm not feeling the love today.  The web site writers advise that I visit a favored spot.  Maybe I'll have tea at Runcible Spoon.  Maybe I'll see a movie at Bear's Place tonight. Who knows?

I now have the makings of a plan.  Implementation of this plan may begin soon, once I get all my ducks in a row. I'll let you know how it turns out.  By controlling the variables in this study, I should be able to come up with a possible cure for PVSD.

I think the unpack and take a walk are good choices... the others... meh...

I completed all four tasks, but also took a long nap which I found quite restorative.
Ready to mix and mingle with the 3rdlanders tomorrow. #letsdothis

Now your talking. A Big ole nap makes the most sense.
