Summer Vacation . . .
Time for summer vacation - sun, sand, travel! Also - no mosquitos, sidewalks and 7-11! The second group may seem strange, but they are what I look forward to the most.
We live in a rural area, of which I have complained about in the past. When vacationing, we stay in a condo in a beach community in New Jersey which makes it possible to sit on the deck and walk around outside - day or night - and not be assaulted by bugs. There are sidewalks, making it possible to just go for a walk and not have to worry about being mowed down by a vehicle. There is a 7-11 variety store a block away - making it simple to get morning coffee, slushees, candy - without ever having to get in the car! This may seem crazy to some, but when you can never do any of these things at your own home - it is a treat!
It is also great to be in a home other than your own. You don't have to be constantly faced with the projects that need to be done, the pets that need attention in some way (although they are missed!) and the mail - it makes for a low stress level!
But, alas, it only lasts for a week - then back to bugs, dust bunnies, and unfinished home projects!
