Although it has been a week since our family vacation, I am still struggling with getting back into the ‘groove’ of things, particularly with all my online tasks. When we arrived home Friday night, I thought that I only needed the following weekend to get the rest I needed to be ready for work this week. Apparently, I’m wrong …lol. The moment that I opened my computer last Monday and saw the number of emails that I have to go through (apparently, being offline for 4 days is synonymous to hundreds of unread emails), I was immediately looking for other less ‘stressful’ things to do. So when my husband asked me to organize all the photos that we took during the vacation, I was more than willing to do it. Sorting through the photos has been fun actually, we each have different stories about them , about the people and the places that we visited. When we saw the photo of the different business establishments that line up along the beach, my husband and I ended up having a discussion about the different strategies that these businesses employ that allow them to stand out since they are basically offering the same products and services. When we were walking along the long stretch of massage clinics, for instance, those that have eye-catching signs are the ones that are most likely to attract the attention of tourists. They must have found a reputable printing company who will print yard signs, business signs and promotional materials that they could use to attract potential customers the most. We actually availed of a back massage from one that handed out simple but detailed flyers.
Anyway, I am making an effort to get back to the groove of things; I have decided to tackle all my tasks one at a time so that I wouldn’t get overwhelmed (in fact, I have just finished going through all my unread emails). I am making progress so I am happy with that.
Have a happy weekend.
