So, this year, vacations have been.........interesting. By the end of Christmas/New Year's vacation, I was exhausted. So much leading up to the 25th. And then, it was just so subzero outside that it made me tired. During February vacation I was recovering from Fifth Disease and felt like crap much of the time we were in chilly Florida. I had no energy and the joints in my hands made me feel like I was 107. I now completely understand the constant pain my husband suffers from. Got it. April vacation, right now, seems the best of all. I feel really, really good physically, emotionally, spiritually. And, I have a lot of time to myself. Well, pup is nearby but she's perfect company for me in this state-of-mind. And, I love it when my husband comes home in the evening. But, during the day....I am free! Honestly, I love being busy and I am happy and extremely grateful for my very full and wonderful life but I crave long stretches of alone time. And, that's just so hard to find working full-time. When I work full time, all my other time is spent getting ready to go back to my full-time work.....and on, and on, and on.........

Today I think, hmmm, I can paint, make jewelry, read, write, workout, do yoga, just sit and look out the window and I don't have to talk to anybody or solve anybody's problems. I don't have 75 balls in the air, all at random heights. I can stay in my pajamas all day and drink tea! I can meditate all morning on the beauty of a single green leaf! This is definitely the perfect vacation for me.
