I don’t think I realized how much I needed some time off until it started. True, a weeklong vacation that involves no travel or social activities does feel a little odd. But a) 2020 is what it is and b) last night, as G threw a random tantrum for grapes at the dinner table, Josh and I realized that our family has not quite reached a great traveling stage and staying home to just relax and hang out is actually a pretty good match for our current needs.
(We didn’t have any grapes!)
Honestly, the only thing I wish we could escape is the heat. I am fantasizing about a quiet northern summer getaway someday. A rented house in Vermont / NH / Maine / Michigan / Canada — somewhere where the morning temps are in the 60s (or less!) and not the 80s. Little streams with rocks and easily accessible hiking trails would be nice, too. Someday.
Anyway! Yesterday was great. After Friday’s brief “upholder rebellion” (I’ve never heard of Gretchen Rubin speak of this, but I absolutely experience it from time to time — it’s when I throw out all expectations, usually for a defined period of time), I feel much much better.
Tomorrow BLP Ep #3 comes out! Will have to take some planner pix today during daylight in preparation.
