Cursor… Cursor… Cursor…
Okay we all know summer is nearly over. The BIG YELLOW school bus wheels are going around and around. The sun is setting before the dinner dishes are dried. The air, at least in my part of the country, has that cool it-will-be-good-sleeping feel. And we have a twinge of angst coursing through our veins. Why? Because we know there is one more great summer adventure to be had before the sweatshirts and sweaters take up the hangers in the closet.
I feel the angst and I’m so ready for my escape. I’m thinking Arizona this year. I want to feel the sun on my body, lounge in warm water, read for endless hours and enjoy the excitement of a summer night watching a ball game, after my DH takes me out for dinner of course. No dishes, no laundry, no alarm clock unless it’s for an early golf tee time.
Vacations from everyday chores and responsibilities are so freeing. Your mind and thus your body recharges itself with renewed energy. Escaping the everyday routine is important to your health. Seeing new things, sparks creativity. Smiling and greeting a stranger feels so good. Laughter is healing. Give yourself permission to get out there and act like a kid for a day or two.
So, will it be the shore or a camping trip up into the mountains? Or the amusement and water park? Or tailgating at your team’s game? What are your thoughts and/or plans? I’d love to hear them.
