Vacation Withdrawl

We spent a full week in our favorite vacation spot – Williamsburg, Va. If you haven’t been there Williamsburg does a pretty good job of recreating an 18th century town and life. It is pretty much the closest I expect get to time travel.  And best of all it is time travel with all the amenities of 21st

century life like plumbing, electricity and room service.

I’ve been suffering from a touch of “vacation lag”—that is kind of like jet lag only you don’t have to go as far.  All you have to do is to have few days off and too much fun. I am having a hard time getting back into the swing of things like writing regularly, eating healthy and doing laundry.
I recently read that it can take up to 288 days to develop a habit. A daunting idea. But Mary Popova concludes that “habit, like genius, is merely a matter of doggedness and “deliberate practice.
What a shame that good habits are so hard to build and so easily laid aside.
