The Mountains are calling. I just had to wear this sweater to work just to get me through the day.
After 5 working days with people Iam ready for silence. I enjoy my quiet house, if that’s even possible with kids. People wear me out. Talking on the phone is something I truly hate and sometimes I just want to shut everything out. I may seem like a social person and sometimes I am but after lots of people around I need time off.
Holidays are especially hard since everyone, and I mean everyone wants to get together. Everyone wants supper, a party, a drink, just a quick lunch. That all equals more pressure, and I can’t just say no. These two little letters would cause hurt feelings, confusion. Others would not understand, next week is not better and working around me won’t help. Holidays are the worst.
I just can’t.
So resetting in the mountains is my solution. My husband understands and some days he just knows that we have to make time for an adventure, no matter how quick or small it is. Now I know I need to get away.
Watching the sunrise and set, the reflection of the mountains in the lake, sweet smells of trees, gurgling water in streams, the amazing view once you hit the peak. Those are the things I need, they are my happiness.
