I’d like to say this year (all six weeks of it) has been unseasonably busy. But let’s be honest, it’s been this way for the past 5 years. With job challenges and growing kids and pending book deadlines, end of the year non-profit demands, drainage issues in a very muddy backyard, oil leaks in the car, it’s been hectic.
I also wouldn’t change a minute of it.
Okay, that’s not completely true. I would change that moment yesterday when my dog punctured my large styrofoam cup of sweet tea and it emptied into my shoes during carline drop off.
In general, I love my life and I’m thankful for (almost all of) it. But I do long for a slow, calm day.
When Terrell asked me what I wanted to do for the long Valentine’s/President’s Day weekend, I said, “I want to get away with my family.” Which should not be confused with”I want to run away from my family.”
Because how can both sound good at the same exact time?
Yeah, we will have to really think hard about that one. Give me a second.
Okay, um, yes, please.
We’ve spent some time browsing the Groupon Getaways portal and I was amazed at all the choices! We narrowed down our choice to the hill country in Texas. But do you know what’s hard? Choosing where to stay when there are so many amazing choices. It was a burden. I know you pity us.
If you could choose a local (by car) spot to getaway to, where would you go?
Stay tuned…. #MyGrouponGetaway
