I'm in San Jose today, and for the next two days, on a job that I cannot share - yet - so I thought I'd take on today's prompt.
Today’s (Optional) Writing Prompt: Describe, in detail, the way you like to relax.
It never fails to crack me up that, when I travel for some kinds of blog functions, my family seems to think I'm away on vacay. Travel doesn't relax me. Well, no, travel alone - that's not uber relaxing. I go on a trip once a year with my husband for his job - now, THAT'S relaxation. I'd much rather travel WITH my husband - someone to sleep on in the plane, to dish with about the other travelers, to make fun of the woman who completely lost her cool on the second plane when a man stepped on her foot (by accident, and how DARE he have an accident like that, didn't he know how much it hurt her??), someone to watch the luggage while I take the world's longest pee, someone to grumble with when the tram in Houston stalls, stops, forcing us to get off the tram and then back on and when it finally drives down the rail it hesitates
and then completely stops on the rails -
and just, you know, to be with my husband.
Especially today. Cuz it's his birthday and I'm on the opposite coast.
I gotta admit, though - being in a hotel room by myself does factor in to the relaxation. LOVE me some hotel time. Watching television, napping intermittently, reading (currently Under the Dome - scaring myself silly with some Stephen King) and getting to take the world's longest shower - those are all good things.
If I was truly relaxing, I'd have room service, a massage, a mani/pedi and something decadent for dessert, with a couple of martinis. I need to be alone or with just my husband, though - as much as I love my kiddos, I cannot relax when they are around.
What about you? How do you define true relaxation? Who factors in to your relaxation equation?
