I know it probably seems silly to go 45 minutes away from home for a retreat for a whole weekend to just scrapbook. But I normally do it twice a year and LOVE IT. I look forward to it all year.
From a work perspective, it is an enormous amount of work and prep. I am very thankful that I do not have to deal with the hotel and contracts. This year, we are doing 2 retreats back to back. A former consultant had rented the hotel this weekend for several years and created her own retreat. However, she has decided to no longer do that, so in order to not loose the retreat weekend to another scrapbooking group, my group booked it. So I am doing 2 weekend retreats back to back.
I will be super exhausted, and probably not able to move for a week. But I have scheduled my self a recoup day the day after. I am going to do something I have not done in YEARS, I am getting a hair cut! Its just a trim, but my Rapunzel look is driving me nuts.
I need a day to relax too.
Normally at the weekend retreats we have a few glasses of wine Sat evening.
However, this time I am going to be a good girl and focus super hard on getting the book I am working on done. I need to move on. I have been doing the same thing for too long now.
Countdown until Noon today, so that I can leave for my retreat!
