Well, perhaps vacations take care of objectives.
My Vague Vacation Objectives
- Work on The Mummy revision 10 minutes a day so I would be able to hit the ground running with it when I got home.
- Check out lit journal websites and on-line journals.
- Create a list of journals for submitting to when I got home.
- Work on an essay.
- Read some more of the weird French kids' book I've been reading for years.
- Write in journals.
- Read about tai chi.
- Do some NaNoWriMo prep.
What I Actually Did
- Read a bunch of old Yoga Journals.
- Meditated a few minutes all but one day with my new Breath app.
- Biked 8 times, clocking in 100 miles over 19 days.
- Spent a lot of time updating my trail album, because of all the biking.
- Did small amounts of yoga regularly. Semi-regularly.
- Did some reading from my Kindle.
- Read four books from my To Be Read Shelves.
- Read a couple of essays from my Kindle.
- Worked on my Bookstore Collection Pinterest Board
- Finished reading one story in that weird French kids' book.
- Thought about an essay I've been meaning to write.
- Organized photos on my laptop.
- Cleaned out some e-mail.
- Looked at a couple of essays at one on-line journal.
- Bought 10 pairs of socks and a newish car, because shopping on vacation is a thing.
What Does This All Mean?

Maybe vacations should be like that. You come home from them with unexpected souvenirs. That could be my vacation objective in future--to come home with a surprise.
Like that car I mentioned.
