This morning the alarm jolted me awake from a sound slumber, at 6:30am. Outside the sun was just rising, and the snow still covers the ground.
I decided as I lay in bed, fighting the urge to blow off the bus and sleep that I'm in need of a vacation. I need to go where the sunshine is plentiful, because this body is in some serious need of vitamin D. This happens every year, right after Christmas. Life returns to normal, and there is nothing but winter outside.
Cabin fever sets in.
Since we're relocating at some point this year, vacation planning is rather tricky. I don't know if we're switching schools midyear or staying this whole year. I don't know if we'll find a renter tomorrow, next month or next year. It's no easy task trying to get away when I don't know when we even can escape for awhile.
Time for on of those lamps that doubles as sunshine. Do those work?
Today, a Starbucks and a little house cleaning will have to suffice. Happy Trails everyone, we are officially back to the grind here.
