Road Trip To Arizona - - Juuust kiddding.

Sometimes life requests crazy things of us.
Then sometimes it just asked that we be flexible.
You could almost call this weekend 
'Crazy-turned-lazy'

The day before we were to leave on our long 25 hour drive to Arizona
Husband found out that instead of the three days of vacation time
he thought was available, there were only three hours.
It quickly turned from
'wow-this-is-gonna-make-money-a-bit-tight'
to
'now-this-is-just-plain-financial-suicide'

The lesson I learned from this.
Sometimes we have to have the humility to admit that we can't do everything.
Sometimes we have to be flexible enough for a change of plans.
Sometimes life is just unpredictable and that's ok.



So instead of coffee and toothpicks keeping our eyes open 
for 50 hours of driving in a 5 day span,
we plan to spend our weekend cuddling in bed,
catching up on our favorite shows,
making some yummy eats,
date night,
dinner with some of our favorite people
and teaching Hubs the perfect way to make toast.


Cheers to the continued adventures of life. . . 
no matter where they may take us.

  5. What a fabulous perspective you have :) Being positive is something I'm working on. Husband & I had plans for the weekend too, but he woke up with the flu so we've decided to spend the weekend in bed watching our favorite shows. Right there with you!

    Cheers,
    Michelle

  6. It sound like you had a much more relaxing time than spending all that time on the road. I admire your spirit and attitude

  7. Sounds (and looks;)) great!!

    p.s. - I LOVE THIS:
    'Sometimes we have to have the humility to admit that we can't do everything.
    Sometimes we have to be flexible enough for a change of plans.
    Sometimes life is just unpredictable and that's ok.'
    And this is something I/the-two-of us want to teach our boy. It's happening all the time (to us:)). And it's ok!
