It has been such a loooooooong summer……or so it seems. Having only 1 child has its perks – only having to pay for 1 set of everything, etc. – but it also has its drawbacks – the constant pleading for attention b/c there isn’t anyone else to play with.
That’s where it really wears me down. Especially when I have to go to town or work (I am in the family rental real estate business in addition to blogging), and he can’t go with me but refuses to stay home alone. (He’s old enough, and my parents are right down the street.)
Enter a mini vacation to Helen, Ga, with my aunt.
*SIGH OF RELIEF*
With the help of my hubby, I was able to get away for a few days and just relax. No housework, no “parental” work, no work except for relaxing.
My aunt and I spent the first couple of days just window-shopping. We saw a lot of really cute & funny things that made us think of family back home.
And we ate at some really great restaurants and had adult beverages.
And watched people as they tubed down the river. One fella was so relaxed that he had fallen asleep & didn’t realize that he’d gotten stuck on a rock…
All in all, it was a very good trip. Although I hated to leave, I was about ready to come back home.
And I’m glad I did!
