As a social butterfly, extrovert and get-up-and-go kind of guy, it is rare that I find or take comfort in the peace and relaxation that comes with staying home and relaxing, as I am usually looking for the next event, trip or gathering, whether I am hosting and planning it or just participating as a guest. This, however, is not the case for me right now.
Perhaps it is depletion or burn-out from 3 back to back trips. Perhaps it is the onset of autumn with its darker, colder, damper days. Or, perhaps it is simply the desire to sit back and enjoy the company of my husband and dog in the luxury, safety and comfort of our home. Whatever it is, I am feeling quite content in my routine of going to work, coming home and spending the evening watching making and eating dinner together, watching favorite shows, and taking care of the chores that need doing.
Whatever it is that has quieted the “need to do something always” voice in my head, I am grateful for it and will enjoy the lull this week has been until all hell breaks loose once again and I am back on the go.
