It has been a summer of doing stuff on my own. Mostly traveling to different extended family events in other parts of the state. Back forth I go!
Once again, I am off on my own this weekend. The family is going in many different directions and when the kids get to be of the age where they have cars and jobs, they have to start making choices between participation and doing this “adult-ish.”
So, once again, I have reserved a seat for one at a family gathering.
I am not sure if I am complaining or bragging. Sometimes I wish it wasn’t that way, but at other times I don’t mind it because I don’t have to be accountable to or worry about anyone but me. There is freedom in that. I can eat when I want. I can stop on the way there when I want. I can take my time and get there when I want.
OK, I guess I am not really complaining on this when I look at it that way.
Do you value your time alone when you are traveling or would you prefer to do it with others?
