A few days in the sun
Last weekend i was in Phoenix and although the weather was a welcome change from the forty degrees and rain that seems to be blanketing MN, the weekend was interesting to say the least.
Every time i go on vacation, i return home more grateful than ever for my seemingly normal life with my husband, son and dogs. Being away makes me appreciate preparing simple meals in my own kitchen, taking walks to the park and snuggling with my pug on the couch.
Now don't get me wrong, i loved not having to worry about cleaning up spilled milk, changing diapers and planning my day around nap time. It was very refreshing having some freedom for a bit. I think i'm good though on airplane travel for a while. I still have a hard time with the thought that being trapped in a large metal object hurtling through the air at high speeds is a good idea. Something about it just freaks me out!
Oh, and i wasn't actually smoking...remember candy cigarettes? A true (and semi-disturbing) classic!
