After a week trying to sleep in hotels, my husband and I are still trying to catch up as well.
The entire time I kept thinking of you sleeping on an air mattress, driving the same distance we drove, and you still hit the ground running.
I am drinking coffee all day and trying desperately to force myself to get back into my routine, but it does not appear to be happening.
This is the first real vacation we have ever had. My husband is a sweet man but not adventurous and happy in his rut.
I might have missed my window for travel. I am not as adaptable as I used to be.
You are worthy! One day I hope to be adventurous.
How are you doing? Do you get days off?
Have you unpacked the boxes?
Can you find the stuff you are looking for?
Eggsy, don't compare our challenges...we all have them, they just take different forms is all. I have to agree with Chris on the travel thing...get out there a bit and see for yourself what it's like. Take just a short one to begin with and who knows, once your DH hears about your adventure, he just might agree to join you!
As for the questions at the end of your post...
Days off? Not yet but we have a 3rd person starting soon so that will help. If not a full day off, maybe a part of one anyway.
Unpacked? Nope! There is NO storage of any sort in the house. No shelves, about 4 little cabinets in the kitchen (except for the ones so high DH can't even reach). 2 tiny closets. There's no place to put anything away. We haven't had the time or energy anyway. So for the time being, we have a maze of boxes to walk through. Fixing up the place is going to be our off-season project!
Can I find what I look for? Mostly no, lol. But we're doing ok anyway.
