you know it’s time for a vacation when……

…. your doorbell rings at 10 p.m., to be told you left your garage door open
– did I really forget to close it after I brought my groceries in that morning?

…. you hear weird water noises in your bathrooms
– the toilets are functioning properly
– you apply the, “if I just ignore it, it’ll go away”
– you can’t face the thought of a disastrous leak that involves removing drywall, insulation, etc
– maybe it will resolve itself overnight
– you wake up and resign yourself to having to find a handyman plumber
– you look out the window and notice a stream of water running through your patio
– you go outside to find the hose is on
– surely I turned off the faucet when I watered my plants that morning

…. you’re relieved you don’t have to take a trip to the emergency room because,
– you won’t be able to answer the basic questions (what day is it, current events, etc)
– they’ll put you in a psych ward
– and medicate you so that you’ll never know what day it is
– which maybe wouldn’t be the end of the world for a few days
– no, there are better ways to rejuvenate

May you all take the time you need to recharge and get back into this thing we call life.
