Planes, trains and automobiles, traveling…it gets old.
Pre-COVID, my husband was a nonstop road warrior. It was nuts. 3 out of 4 weeks per month, he’d leave on a Monday and return Thursday (or sometimes Friday!), bouncing from state to state, city to city, state capital to state capital.
On the up-side of that, he’s got miles and points and status that serve us well. Airlines, hotels, car rentals…we’ve got it.
On the down-side, being a road warrior is the pits. It’s disruptive. It’s unsustainable as a way of life. It’s not healthy.
Last week, I got a little taste of that, and…no thanks!! 2 states, 4 towns, FOUR different hotels in 7 days.
Ok, it wasn’t allllllllll bad, but honestly, that’s not a way of life I’d want to do on the regular. But I DO like a few nights all by myself in a hotel:)
I left last Tuesday (nonstop flight, woohoo!) and went to Phoenix for a fantastic 2-day “fire hose” of a masterclass with the living legend Kathy Kolbe, theorist and founder of all things Kolbe Corp. I’ve been a practicing certified Kolbe consultant for almost a year, and getting to learn from the Grand Poobah herself was a honor.
On Thursday, my hubby and 2 younger sons joined me and we spent some fun time at a cool resort in Tempe, splashing in the pool, eating at lovely restaurants and hitting gold at a Goodwill in Scottsdale.
On Saturday, my hubby, college-bound-decision-mode youngest son and I jetted over to the Orange, CA, area for a one-night stay in Newport Beach for some seaside fun (albeit chilly and cloudy!), and hitting the jackpot again at an epic vintage store.
And then on Sunday, we spent one more night close to Chapman University for a Monday admitted students tour.
Never was I so grateful for a drama-free flight from Orange to Austin because I don’t think I would’ve done well with any delays. This mama needed to get HOME!!!
Plus, two kitties were certainly missing my lap, of course.
