About this time of year, I start to itch for travel. I want a weekend away, or a road trip or an adventure. It’s the same every year. The middle of February brings with it a need to do something, anything, as long as it is away from here.
For a lot of years, I went to a Pagan convention in San Jose, CA on President’s day weekend, and that scratched the itch pretty successfully. The last few years though, that convention has become too much for me. I’m thrilled that they’ve grown so much, but at the same time, it is really hard for me to cope with that many people for four days.
So this President’s Day weekend, I’m here at home, still itching to go somewhere, do something. Which is difficult when you are purposefully not spending money and working hard to put money aside for planned holidays in the fall.
I’d love to sit on a beach and watch the sun set…and rise again…or sit beside a roaring fire while the snow falls outside the cabin.
So for today I’m going to focus on giving myself a “me” day. I have an appointment today to have my hair colored and trimmed, and when I get back, I’ll maybe have a nice soak in the tub and such, while reminding myself of the shenanigans I have planned in September in LA and the convention in October in Denver.
What about you, Readers? Has cabin fever set in? How do you deal with it?
Happy Saturday! I’m off to enjoy this cup of coffee and see about getting some words down on paper.
