For those of you who thought I was crazy, it really wasn’t as bad as one would think. Sure I have bruises on my tailbone, but the actual drive really went pretty quickly. I guess that’s what happens when you’re in good company.
Isn’t it funny what vacations do to you though? Just a few days ago I was sitting outside a coffee shop with the sun basking down on me. There were trees lining every nook and cranny of the patio, and encased in flowering bushes and plants. I had a good book in one hand and an amazing iced coffee in the other, and in my mind was the freedom of knowing I could sit there as long as I wanted. And I did. Three hours of enjoying the songs of the exotic birds in the tree next to me. I had an actual moment where I thought, “It doesn’t get better than this. It truly doesn’t.”
And now here I am sitting at a desk in my dark living room with a brown banana and a cat scratching on my chair (when he VERY much knows he’s not allowed to do that.) I am typing hurriedly knowing that not only am I not going to have enough time to make this past as beautiful and detailed as I’d like, but that I’m also not going to have enough time to make myself as beautiful and detailed as I’d like for work today, considering I have to leave the house in thirty min.
Vacations are this special time where we can sit back, relax, and take in little moments. And they are so necessary. But then you get back to the real world and it’s like a big smack in the face.
I do appreciate my little world I live in, but I sure would like to be hangin out with that parrot instead.
Who’s with me? Lets find a way to live an extended vacation. Do you have to move to Hawaii for that?
Here’s to the weekend and making it as vacation-y as possible. Ill just be layered up enjoying the rain.
