Y’all, I have been gone a lot lately. In the last 12 weeks I’ve been to Vegas, Colorado, Nashville (twice), Toronto, south Texas, Manila, Connecticut, New York, and Dallas. Whew! I’m finally home for a few weeks, and I am very excited to spend time with my baby and husband, hang out with friends, and sleep (oh yes, the sleep). Of course, there will be a fair amount of prepping for the next round of travel (which is never that far away!). Here are a few things I will be doing that will help me get ready to get on the road again:
Replenishing supplies. All of these trips have really taken a toll on my toiletries! I need to replace just about everything, from my shampoo to my toothpaste to my razor. My makeup bag was also hit pretty hard, so I will be checking to see if any of my cosmetics need updating as well.
Updating my wardrobe. Somehow, I always end up taking the same 5-7 outfits on all of my trips. By the end of the travel period, either a) I am sick to death of all of them; or b) I’ve literally worn them out, which happens often with simple tees or tanks. I plan to spend some time while I’m home going through my wardrobe and deciding on the next 5-7 outfits, adding a few interesting pieces where I can or just replacing stuff that’s just done.
Touching base. After a marathon of travel, I typically feel like I’ve lost touch with my friends and loved ones. I plan to spend a lot of time over the next few weeks catching up with my family and friends.
Working out. It’s a cliché, I know, but sometimes it is so hard to find time to exercise on the road. I will be getting a lot of nice physical activity while I’m home, including my two favorites, swimming and yoga.
Readers, what do you do on breaks from travel?
