I want to travel. There. I said it. Now that I’ve said it, I don’t feel better about not traveling, but perhaps this wanderlust will subside a little.
Lately I’ve been really up and down. The weather totally spazzing isn’t helping. Bitsy is finally recovered from her Easter upset. But I’m in a weird state of mind.
I’ve been thinking about a road trip. I keep wondering where I’d go. There’s nothing really for me to get into. A friend said Mercury would be in retrograde soon… if you think 3 weeks is soon… but apparently that might be affecting my mood.
Dogs are always the best medicine – except when they’re not. Bitsy seems to understand I’m feeling off my game, but she’s been acting up a bit. I feel guilty that I’ve been wishing for another dog lately to keep her occupied. It’s these times when depression kicks my ass and I just don’t want to do anything but sit and watch Netflix. I think she is going stir crazy.
I feel paralyzed in some ways – wanting to get away, explore – leave family drama behind – abandon all responsibilities… but then I remember I promised to take care of this ball of fluff and it wouldn’t be fair to her if I totally bailed on my duties to her. So I think I’ll get off my ass and actually throw the tennis ball for a while.
Does anyone have some suggestions for driveable getaways from the Delaware?
