What have I learned from sitting by a borrowed lake all weekend without my phone or computer?
I’ve learned that vacation (newly dubbed CARB-cation or I-don’t-care-cation) is best experienced from pajama pants and bathing suits. I’ve learned that flip-flops or no flops at all are the preferable choice for my feet.
I’m learning that many adult hands and eyes make watching children light work; and that older kids are great help with my younger ones.
I’ve learned that
Friends can pick up where they left off a year ago,
Calories DO count on Maycation but that they are best left worried about until next week,
Mountain air and mountain water tastes better than anything at sea level,
and that the rest of the house can look like an American Girl bomb went off, but if the kitchen is clean it’s all good.
I’ve learned that 11 am isn’t too early for my nap.
My heart feels full, my shoulders are a little pink and I’ve stayed up way too late 3 nights in a row. But I wouldn’t rather be anywhere else.
I’ve gotten out of the habit of checking my phone because it’s sitting on a side table quietly telling me …No Service. I’m pretty sure I’m okay with that. And I think I might just leave it there until we drive home tomorrow.
And I learned that Maycation is fun spent anywhere, even at home, but the best place to be is in the middle of friends and family.
What did you do for your Maycation?
