Fun Facts Friday on Sunday

Since I didn't do Fun Facts Friday, I thought I'd do a Fun Facts Vacation List as a recap. Especially since my Saturday won't have been terribly exciting. I mean, I left the beach behind and spent 8 1/2 hours in the car...kind of depressing.

Today will be picking up the pups (more driving), laundry, errands, and just trying to get back to reality. While it was nice to shower in my own shower (especially after a long day on the road) and sleep in my own bed, I'm certainly going to miss the beach and my lazy days on the white sandy beaches of Perdido Key, FL. But was I really all that lazy? Yes and no:

  • I ran 25 miles.
  • I walked up 81 flights of stairs.
  • I finished 2 books.
  • We killed 2 cans of spray on sunblock.
  • I did 4 loads of laundry.
  • We spent 6 out of 7 days on the beach (minimum 4 hours each day).
  • We went through about 4 gallons of water.
  • I enjoyed breakfast on the balcony every morning.
  • I never slept past 8 am.
  • I never stayed up past 10:40 pm.
  • We enjoyed 2 evenings with friends. 
  • We did a lot of daydreaming. 
  • We never finished a single movie.
  • We relaxed, relaxed, and relaxed some more.
Now that I'm home, I'm really appreciating my own noise makers in the bedroom (ceiling fan & air purifier), my own pillows, the smells of my own sheets (not dipped in bleach). I'm ok with not walking up all the flights of stairs each day, but I will miss the sand between my toes, breakfasts and dinners on the balcony, lunches on the beach, and the pure relaxation that vacation brought.
