If you live in the South, you know that storm season runs June through November and that you’ll have your fair share of power outages during that time. For that reason, I am not complaining that I am currently sitting in the dark with wet hair, eating a banana and beginning to wonder about the week’s worth of grocieries I bought yesterday. Thank God for gas water heaters. Now, if I could just get my hands on a battery powered hair dryer and a sugar-free Red Bull, life would be grand!
Being forced to have a slower morning is probably a good thing. Easing back into real life after vacation is a skill that takes a while to master and I’m not sure I’ve reached that point of mastery yet. Although, I did make my mile long To Do list last night BEFORE the power went out- Surely I earned a badge with that move.
My mini vacation was good. Thanks to Tropical Storm Lee, it rained the entire time, but I got to spend 2.75 days with no alarm clocks, no urgent phone calls and no diets. And I managed to pickup a piece of my Halloween costume, which is still in the works…
There was one fleeting moment during the weekend when I found myself thinking, “If only I didn’t have to go back.” That, to me, is a clear sign of a good vacation.
This trip was only my second weekend away this year. Both vacations have been no more than 2 nights, but enough to keep me sane.
I think I can make it to October now… where a 10 day trip to the California coast awaits me.
What is your favorite destination for a 1 to 2 night mini-getaway?
