Just like home

I don’t want it to be just like home.

Vacation. When you leave home for vacation, especially when you live in the Northwest where it is cold and wet all the time, you want to leave for a place that will be warm and sunny. Whatever happens, you want the weather to be different than what you had at home.

Palm Springs hasn’t delivered yet, and the forecast says it won’t the rest of the week either. Last week it was in the 80’s.

Yesterday, the first day here, it was cold, wet, and windy. It was actually stormy. Today, the sun is out to some degree but the dark heavy clouds are zipping my at a high rate of speed since the wind is blowing harder than the blower at the end of a car wash.

Disappointing, to say the least. I was expecting some warm weather down here. Not so much.

Guess there really will be time to relax since I’ll be stuck inside.

Bummer.

Why does vacation go so fast?

I think we all ask this question at one point. Actually, we all asked it as kids each year when school was about to start again and we just weren’t done with summer.

Well, now well into the “adulting years”, I have to ask that question at the end of each vacation, no matter whatever it was that I was doing. Obviously in most cases, I was enjoying myself and don’t want it to end.

Adulting sucks. Going back to work after vacation sucks. Actually, having a job sucks…
