The Man and I are traveling this week. Just an overnighter to help a friend’s daughter move from her parents’ house to a deluxe apartment in the sky in a big city about six hours away from us. We’ll be traveling by cargo van, and staying in a moderately priced hotel, with a quick trip to IKEA the following morning, and hopefully returning home with a new couch.
I know, luxurious, right?
It’s no honeymoon, but I know we’ll still have a good time. We like spending time together, even while working or doing menial tasks, and he actually loves to drive. I can’t wait to hit IKEA, one of the things I miss most about living up north. When the closest one is six hours away, you appreciate it so much more.
And I can’t wait to have a couch! We’ve been sitting in chairs every evening, and even though The Man loves his recliner, I’m ready to relax, and stretch out.
We’ll mix a little work with a little fun, and my parents will stay with The Boy – a little changeup to our routine. Enough to make it interesting, but not too much to throw us off. This is the life. 🙂
