Holiday Laziness

The holiday season is great because it always means a couple of weeks off from work, time with friends and family, Christmas and all the meals that accompany it, and plenty of time to relax. And the relaxing becomes addictive, to the point where it is criminally lazy. At least it is on my part.

There are plenty of things that I could/should be doing on my time off. There is work to be done, and my apartment is so messy it looks like a disaster zone. But I am not inclined to do anything about it just yet. I feel like it is perfectly okay to lounge around and watch an entire season of Homeland in one sitting, nap whenever I feel like it, sleep in as long as humanly possible, and go entire days without feeling the urge to leave the couch. Yes, I am lazy, but I like it. Each time I step over a pile of clothes that either needs to be washed or put away, I know that things need to get done. But there is always tomorrow for that. And by tomorrow, I mean an undertermined day sometime next week, when I again will find some excuse not to do it. By the time this vacation is over, I will definitely feel as though I could have used my time better, but at the same time, I wonder if I really wanted to use it any better. Maybe doing a whole lot of nothing is exactly how I want to be using my time.

If that is my goal, then I am doing extremely well at it and accomplishing everything that I want.
