It’s just the most decadent time for me.
To others, it absolutely seems like another mediocre, boring family getaway. But for me, it’s the height of indulging my appetites. This is not something that I do easily often. I’ve found that structure and discipline win the day when it comes to achieving what I want to achieve. I spend a lot of tense, stressful hours inside the zone controlled heating and air conditioning of the office. I have found that getting plenty of exercise, healthy food and superb rest is essential to being my best at what I do. And I’m not really interested in anything but my best when I’m inside the commercial heating and air conditioning of my office. I’m different when I’m not working as I like to relax and just like my off hours. However, that doesn’t allow me to just indulge the way I might want to. That goes for the air conditioner setting and my strict bedtime. But breaking the rules is what getaway is all about for me. Again, this might be lame to other people but ordering anything I want off of a menu for 2 weeks straight is a little slice of heaven. It’s also appealing to be able to stay in a getaway rental instead of a hotel room. I appreciate staying in getaway rentals because of the residential heating and air conditioning. The last place we stayed even had zone controlled heating and air conditioning like we do in the office. My fiance and I had a thermostat in the master living room all on our own. I can promise you that I cranked that cooling the whole time I was on getaway. That’s so not in character for me when I’m at home as the thermostat setting is not negotiable. That’s so we do not rack up huge heating and cooling costs. I just enjoy my vacations.
