March’s adage, “in like a lion and out like a lamb” could very well be used to describe me as I embark on a vacation. But that’s what vacation is about, right?   

Turning that ferocious beast back into the cuddly more approachable me. OK, maybe not cuddly but I would like to be more approachable. Why is so hard to rejuvenate at home? To really refresh, I have to leave, get out of town. But lately, I haven’t had [made] time. 

For winter break (Feb), the kids and I left home for a few days and visited a relative 90 minutes away. We went tubing and hung out in the hot tub. But still, my six-year-old asked me, “Isn’t this winter break? Aren’t we supposed to GO somewhere?” Guess I’ve taught him well – I don’t count NJ as traveling away from home either. So I pine for warmer weather, a trip somewhere and oooh yeah – summer vacation and that keeps me from being right here, right now. So if I am not where I want to be and I am not where I am — where the heck am I?
