Well, it’s been a while, I know, but here I am! The past few weeks have been insanely busy with packing up all of our worldly possessions, moving them across town, unpacking and now trying to decide on shades, blinds, paint colors, what decor to use and what to get rid of now that I see what’s going to work and what’s not going to work with decorating our new home. I’m in no hurry to “finish” decorating because I know it’s never really finished so I’m taking it slow and easy, thinking things through, and getting advice from other people. I don’t think I have an eye for such things so I don’t want to rush.
Jon has been traveling SO much the past several weeks and this week he was due to be in Orlando for a few days. Instead of staying home by myself, I decided I’d tag along with him on this trip and take a few days of downtime for myself as well. I call it, “Take Your Wife to Work Week!”
We arrived in Orlando this afternoon and after a couple of hours of computer work in our hotel room, we’re going to go across the street to Universal Orlando’s City Walk for dinner and maybe a drink or two and do some people watching. It seems like it’s been weeks since we’ve been to the ocean and I contemplated staying home and forcing myself to leave the house and sit on the beach and get some sun on this ever-whitening body of mine. But, I opted to hang with my buddy and at least share some meals and the same bed while we can. While he’s working his event tomorrow, I’ll go down and lay by the pool and get some sun that way. Yeah, I know…don’t say it…I’ve been told lately by several people that I’ve got a rough life and that my life is a vacation and to shut my pie hole and that people “hate” me. All said in fun of course and not to be mean but for a brief moment when I read these comments, I felt hurt. Then, I stepped back and thought…why would their comments hurt me?
I DO have a good life…I have very little drama to report (& if I did, I wouldn’t talk about it openly on Facebook or my blog!) I have very little negativity in my life. I’ve designed it that way. I try to stay out of gossip circles, away from people that thrive on drama and negativity & instead, I surround myself with happy people and people who are silly and like to have fun and love life. Twenty eight years ago, I married my best friend & am thankful every day that he puts up with my craziness. He continues to dote on me and spoil me rotten even when I’m at my worst. He works hard & makes a good living that has allowed me to stay home and take care of our business so that when he IS home, he can relax and we can enjoy each other. I have nothing to complain about.
I’m SORRY that it’s cold where you are and we chose to move to Florida last year. I’m SORRY it’s warm and sunny and we’ve built a nice home and are happy to live where we do and I’m SORRY we eat out a lot…I’m sorry, but Jon travels a lot and we’re apart more than we’re together so when we ARE together, we make the most of our time together by doing fun things and this makes me happy. I post about the things that make me happy. That will not change.
Now, come on Jon…let’s go EAT!
