All Work, No Play

It has been a crazy-busy past few weeks for me at work. This morning the motivation to go to work was completely non-existent. Now, some would say that this lack of motivation exists within them all the time. While I do not consider myself to be in that category, I must admit, that lately I have had that feeling more often then not. That notion, however, usually lasts only for a moment then my logical brain kicks in and I scurry off to be a productive, contributing member of society.

Last night we got dumped on - finally a big snow fall and I have no chance of taking the day off. It is a very sad day indeed. The longer I spent brushing off my car while simultaneously throwing snow balls at the dogs (and running around like a lunatic with them in my back yard) the harder it was for me to actually get into my car and (force myself to) head to work. How badly I wanted to take a snow day and go skiing. To no avail, my impending deadlines are looming overhead. Being a responsible adult has overthrown the adolescent desires of playing all day in this beautiful snow. Such is life. My skis shall remain in my gear closet wondering why I have neglected them for almost this entire season. My mind will feel sad for my neglected skis but more sad for myself who won't have the opportunity to take some runs today. My body will be here, at work, being productive and dutifully meeting my deadlines and goals. What has happened to me?

Seriously ... take a long weekend, and come to Utah ... I'm sure we can find safe places for you to stay (for little to no money).

Alta and Brighton have had over 500" of snow, and Solitude and Snowbird are about 440" ...

I bet we could even find a bike for you to ride, especially now that it's warming up in the valley and the roads are drying up ... ski AM, ride PM.

You need to get away to recharge your batteries before you lose it completely.

'Safe places for me to stay'. Are there unsafe places that I should shy away from? Will they try and convert me in these unsafe places? Seriously - I do need to recharge, but the travel budget is low on the east coast - thanks to NYS Taxes - MFr's! Someday soon, I will def keep you posted.
