This is what New York City has looked like this past week.
This is where my husband is. Remember that surf trip I wanted to take? Yes, well, he’s there and I’m here.
’nuff said? I thought so.
OK, so that’s not entirely true. I don’t feel resentment towards my husband so maybe I’m not jealous of my husband. I’m glad that he’s there and that he gets a chance to surf and enjoy some down time. Plus, I did get to have my own surf vacation alone last year so I can’t really complain, right?
P.S. Thank you all so much for your thoughtful comments on my post yesterday. I know that it’s all part of being human and feeling like a hypocrite is largely a result of me being a perfectionist and overanalyzing. I guess part of the reason that I was frustrated was being I feel (felt?) so stuck in that funk and felt like I was falling back on old habits. Writing the post helped and I definitely feel lighter. There – see?? I’m releasing…
Do you take vacations alone or have dedicated girls’ or guys’ weekends?
