I've been thinking a lot recently about vacations. I mean a lot. Aren't vacations to take a vacation from your stress and let yourself rest and rejuvenate? A way to relax and grow?
I've NEVER that I can remember, taken a vacation with myself and not with my family. A vacation where I went somewhere and they stayed home. Now my daughter has and my husband travels a lot, but I'm almost always home.
I've taken care of my family for 35 years (it's my 35th anniversary today) and I think it's time to take a little R&R for myself. I want to get away and take care of my own needs for a week and let them fend for themselves.
I've decided to take a week off from my family in July. I'm going to 'see' what it feels like.
I'm going somewhere - without them - out west. I'll pick a destination, go, and see what happens.
I've never done that before. I'm excited. I must say my family doesn't totally 'get it' - they can't understand why I would even want to do this alone, but I do. I think it's just what the doctor ordered. And I must say they are supporting me so kudos to them (I think).
Oh and don't worry, I'm still going to Blog that week in July - I'm going to pre-blog with some really good articles, so don't think about not coming here to visit - I just may not be able to answer you for that week.
Then I'll be back and maybe I can write and tell you some of the things I saw and learned.
Wish I could go to Tuscany - well, maybe someday.
The world is a great book; he who never stirs from home, reads only a page.
ChattyHas any body done this before and if so was it worth it? What did you see? What did you learn?
