We’re heading back to Sabbaticalville tomorrow evening. I have mixed feelings about it. I love being at home, but I’m also enjoying our sabbatical adventures. The thing I’ll miss most is our bed. I don’t sleep well on the torture device (futon) we have in our apartment in Sabbaticalville. Mostly I don’t sleep at all and end up going out to the couch to catch a few hours of sleep. I’m not looking forward to that at all.
M the Elder is going to Washington, D.C. this weekend. I’m not sure yet whether I’ll be going or not. I think not. M will be tied up in meetings most of the time, leaving me on my own. I don’t like sightseeing on my own. I find it depressing. I like to share the sights with someone. But not going means hanging out in Sabbaticalville for a few days on my own too. The advantage to that is I’m at home (or as much “at home” as I can be in our temporary quarters), I know my way around, I don’t have to pay $10/day to use the gym (unlike the hotel in D.C. where M is staying), and I can spend the time relaxing and reading without feeling like I should be out sightseeing or otherwise making good use of the time and trip.
As you can tell, I’m leaning towards not going.
I will not have access (or if I do, it will be very limited) to the internet again (once we leave) until May 2nd when the cable connection is reinstalled. So, enjoy your weekend and I’ll see ya’all again next week!
One perfect red tulip. Surely, Spring has sprung. Safe travels back to Sabbaticalville.
