One more day of work.
I just gotta make it through one more day of work.
hubby and I are high-tailing it outta here!
The past few months have been unfathomably stressful for us. As much as I love my work, the hours and sometimes chaoticness of the hotel are exhausting. I spend 40 hours a week at work, and another 10-15 hours a week on the commute. Needless to say, when I am at home, I’m usually a limp noodle. I don’t feel like talking, I don’t feel like doing chores, and I usually just want to be left alone. Not very good for the family or our relationships or my spirit.
Hubby has been on the road marketing the product he and his business partner have developed. The business is growing, but not as quickly as he had hoped. We’ve invested quite a bit of our money into it, and while it’s doing well enough for us to get our money back, it’s not quite to the place where we can draw income from it. The future looks bright, but right now, we’re feeling the stress of only having my “whopping” income.
Then of course we have the lazy, unmotivated children situation.
And the ailing in-laws situation.
And, and, and……..
So when I was given this Sunday off of work, I decided to take Monday and Tuesday off as well, giving me a three day weekend to get away from it all!
Nashville, here we come!
We love Nashville!
It has one of my hotels there, so we can stay cheap.
And it has BBQ!
We need this getaway desperately. I am looking forward to being able to focus on just us. I am looking forward to being the guest in a hotel, instead of the desk agent. I’m looking forward to sitting in a bar listening to live music. And of course I’m looking forward to trying out two new BBQ joints.
It’s definitely been well earned by both of us. Cross your fingers that the fort will stay standing while we are gone. We are hoping there won’t be any emergency calls from any of the family members. All we want is a few days away, so we can reconnect with each other, recoup from the long days and renew our energy.
When we return on Tuesday, we’ll be ready to face the challenges with a more positive attitude.
That’s the plan, anyway.
