I’ve barely had a second to think since I left PR at school in Texas.
Who says empty nesters get bored and/or have a free minute to spare?
Before PR left for college, I thought it would be a good idea to keep extra-busy my first full week as an empty nester.
I looked at my (never-ending) list of extremely neglected to-do’s and decided I’d start tackling them as soon as I returned to California.
I spent my week at endless appointments, got my car serviced, and blah, blah, blah, BLAH.
Over the next several days, I’ll be concentrating on pre-termite fumigation preparation.
Don’t you wish your life was just as exciting as mine?
On a happier note, I’ve decided to head up the coast for a few days once the house is tented.
If I’m going to be kicked out of my house, I might as well take some photos of the California coast, right?
Because I didn’t have much warning (of the termites!) to plan ahead,
I’m probably not going to go too far.
It isn’t easy to find vacant hotel rooms in pretty beach towns around Labor Day.
I’m hoping to find a room in Santa Barbara or San Luis Obispo and make some day trips from there.
If I can’t find an empty hotel room, I might live out of my car for a few days.
(I wouldn’t mind. I love road trips!)
Of course, I still have several days of house-prep to take care of before I go anywhere.
It’s hard not to imagine relaxing at the beach with a good book, followed by some sunset (and night) photography at the end of the day.
The very idea *almost* makes me grateful to the termites.
