Wishing Away Time

I'm doing it again.  I'm wishing away weeks and months of my life.  I don't know why I torture myself like this.  Oh wait!  I know why; I do it because I have so much to look forward to.  We have two exciting trips coming up and I just get so excited about traveling.  Traveling is nourishment for my soul and for my brain.  Traveling is a way for us to get away from the routine of our everyday lives.  We can reconnect and talk about things other than work.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy my job and my students, but I also enjoy spending time with my family and learning.  You see, we don't just travel or go on vacation to relax.  We like to go and do new things.  We like to learn about the places we are.  We like to experience the culture of the area.

We choose to spend our money on traveling.  We don't have a fancy house or a new car, but we get out and about quite frequently.  In November, we are going to Chicago for Thanksgiving.  We get to visit and spend the holiday with our extended family that we only see once or twice a year.  We know we will be seeing Fiddler on the Roof, which is one of hubby's favorites.  We will also probably go to the zoo and a museum or two.  Hopefully, we can also catch up with some friends that we haven't seen in a while.

In December, we will be spending Christmas at Disney World.  While this will be a lot of fun, we also make a point to go on tours to learn about the workings of the park.  This year we will be learning about Animal Kingdom and some of the animals that call it home.

While I can't wait for these trips to get here, I also know that I need to slow down and enjoy this fall.  There is a lot going on and I need to take time to enjoy it.  My studnets need me and I need to be my best for them so I'll try to stop wishing away time because I know with how busy things are it will fly by.
