Only 1 more day of work and then I am off to Mexico with the family for 9 days. I haven’t taken a vacation this long in…ever! We are flying into Cancun and then driving an hour south to Akumal, which is a tiny beach town that hasn’t been very Americanized. They have a few restaurants, a grocery store, small library and condos. No all inclusive resorts or big hotels to contend with, and no spring break type tourists to laugh at either. I will be sitting in a beach chair, reading a book and enjoying the sounds of the ocean. We do plan to hit the ruins of Tulum and tour the city, likely stopping for some food and treats at the Panderia.
Staying focused after a long holiday break was tough today. Not only was my mind on my vacation, but I decided to tell my boss the news and then let others I work with know as well. It was fun to finally talk about everything, but it was a bit distracting and I didn’t get as much done as I had planned. Plus I had two coworkers leave today so we sent them off with a goodbye lunch.
