Now, I know that like, a third of this country just got dumped on by a Spring blizzard. But it was still a bit disconcerting to come back from Texas, where we were wearing shorts and sunscreen, to Ohio, and see this.
I felt a little bit like Olivia here, only without all that energy.
What to do? What to do? I seem to be spinning my wheels and looking down to find I've been riding on a treadmill all day and have gone absolutely nowhere.
Have I always been like this after a trip? I'm sure I have. Except that nine months is by far the longest we've ever gone without traveling somewhere, for some reason. I seem to have lost my Travel Mojo.
Or maybe I'm just getting old.
Traveling that often probably sounds excessive to some of you, but always living away from relatives -- and often in places that offer so many things to do and see -- we have found ourselves on the road quite a bit.
Which is still better than finding ourselves in the air, and I say that even following this recent road trip, where we covered more than 2000 miles.
I appreciate all of your comments and suggestions from my last post. Especially a couple of you who felt so strongly about your opinion that you had to comment about it more than once. *wink*
I do have something in the works, although so far those "works" are all in my head. I do hope I get my Writing Groove back quickly; I belatedly looked at the calendar and realized that my parents' visit is coming up. "Oh, that's this weekend!" And I don't know how much writing I'll do while they're here. Too many other, more important things to take care of. Like, oh, antiquing, just to throw something out there...
