Happy Belated Halloween! I’m not a big fan of the holiday, but I hope you had fun whatever you did! I’ve been running to and fro all week, which isn’t surprising given my fall schedule. Thankfully I had all Saturday afternoon at home, which was a nice change.
Last weekend I had every intention of not going home after the Minnesota Bloggers Conference. I planned to delay my travel back until Sunday. But the Sunday night blues are usually harder when I come home on Sundays after a fun weekend away. So instead I came home on Saturday night. I was able to spend some time with my brother, go to church with my family, and not spend any time in the car on Sunday. It was a win – win – win. I love living at home, cheaper cost of living, no traffic, tight knit community. But I also love getting out of town. Driving to the cities or Duluth gives me time to get away and reconnect with myself. None of the daily distractions.
I had originally planned to be out of town this weekend also. But as the weekend got closer my plans changed more. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to be gone, but given that I’ll be in the cities NEXT weekend, it didn’t seem necessary to be there three weekends in a row.
Full discloser, I’m still going to the Vikings game in Minneapolis today. But I’m going down and back with my dad. Which is worth the time in the car.
Do you like traveling on the weekends? Or you do you prefer to stick close to home and keep your traveling for longer distance and time trips?
