I took the first week of May off of work to recover from tax season. Even though I no longer actually do tax preparation, as the CPA in our office, I do get extra work both at the end of the year and at the beginning of the year until tax day.
Because my kitty is 17 years old with medical conditions, I don't want to leave her if I don't have to (I will have to leave her for 2 days in June--just one overnight--for a required work trip), so I don't even think about going anywheres these days. I didn't even do any day trips--I've gotten out of the habit of driving and at the moment, anything longer than a 5 mile trip makes me a bit nervous).
I had plenty to do, though, mostly catching up with household stuff. I brought my car in for its 60,000 mile service, had my bicycle refurbished, did some decluttering, and caught up with a few friends I hadn't seen since the holidays. I also read a lot.
I went to services the last weekend for their first in-person potluck in two years, and, wouldn't you know, someone who was there tested postive for COVID the next day, so my first few days back at work were spent working remotely. I am fortunate that I did not come down with it.
Now things will be a little calmer at work until they rev up again in September. I'm going to try to make more of an effort to work fewer evenings and weekends during this relatively "slow" time of year.
