I have been lucky enough to be on vacation this week and next
but unlucky enough not to have a lot of money to enjoy a vacation,
Monday in my quest to have fun my husband and I went to two separate colleges with my daughter who is a senior this year. We did a lot of walking and a lot of question asking. We especially had a lot of fun at the college my daughter likes the most. My niece had previous attended there and Merissa took us on a great tour of here there and everywhere. So now we have less questions and more answers and I really wish that a big wad of money would just fall from the sky. But don't we all'
Tuesday involved taking my daughter all over town to find a job. She filled out ten or more applications and got one interview with a possible call back.So I spent most of day sitting in the car what fun .WhenI got home my husband gave me a bit of news that made me wishI had stayed in the car forever. Because he wanted to go fishing on wednesday instead of doing something together. He didn't ask me to go nor could he explain he's need to go and leave me home.
So tuesday night I was out of sorts and broken hearted and could hardly take a breathe .So me and the daughter lazed on the bed listening to stupid love songs thaI kept changing .Because no one sings a love song about a husband that leaves his wife on vacation. My daughter kept playing songs like rocky. or The climb or I'm a survivor . She kept putting the volume louder to make me laugh. Then she said the magic words You didn't exercise today you can't let him do that to you. Tomorrow will you please take me to the Windsor lock's canal. I said of course.
So this morning we took a short ride to the canal.We got there at 1030 and left at 130. We walked the whole canal which is 9 miles. We saw a huge egret and a bunch of swans and even a chipmunk. My daughter brought her ipod and brought my mojo back we laughed and complained the whole way or at least i did. But i did feel a lot better about myself .Especially because i didn't let my husband cause me to ruin a dream of mind to be fit and happy and enjoy my time off.
Tomorrow he wants to take me to the beach my daughter and son have other plans. I had planned on staying home but I really really love the beach more than a husband who has no or makes no sense. i guess i will go and pester the guy all day, So next time he will really remember who he is leaving home.
Please do not let anyone take away your dreams or your hopes. and always try to find a good friend or listener in your corner . Thanks Sara again for being the dream maker.
