But in this case Gwen was off of school for another week, plus, so there was no sleeping anything off. In fact, I found myself falling into old bad habits of staying up too late because that was the only bit of quiet I could find. It took me almost that whole week just to get my car completely unpacked and all the laundry done, and I basically had to wait for her to go back to school before I could get the apartment cleaned up and put away. She was a little extra touchy... I think she had the emotional blahs too.
So two trips in two weeks = two or more weeks recovery. At least with a 6 year old home from school.
|A picnic helped us chase away some of our blahs!|
Ironically, I'm heading out again later next week, but this time for a solo trip! The last time that happened was Wanderlust just under a year ago, then Elise's Graduation almost 2 years ago, and California with Heather 3 years ago. Noticing a trend? I actually get two of these solo trips this year, and I can't even express how excited I am. I adore my trips with Gwen. I think they are ones we will both remember all our lives. But the upcoming 4 whole days of not having to be "on"... well that is a completely different kind of excitement!
Recharging, re-energizing, and I'm only packing a backpack full of stuff, so no extended clean up! Hallelujah!
