Hubby and I traveled Monday. Even though I travel fairly often, I still find it tedious and draining. Could be my age, I guess. As I get older, I find I’m more and more attached to my own bed, my own cozy reading chair, my own writing space.
When we planned this trip, I had high hopes of pulling my laptop out on the flight and working on my book. Instead, I slept almost all the way from Denver to Boston. On an early afternoon flight, no less.
I had more plans to write after we checked into the hotel last night. But there I was, wined and dined and ready to crash at 8:00 PM Colorado time. I sat at the desk to work on this post, but the desk was too high and my arms hurt and I kept yawning.
Tomorrow’s post may be more energetic. No promises, though. We have kids (grown up ones) to visit and a six-month old granddaughter to enjoy. There are definitely some different priorities for the next two days.
Enjoy your time, and granddaughter 🙂

You made me chuckle with recognition! I always miss my desk and bed when I travel too. My daughter and son-in-law are staying with us and I am babysitting my 6 month old granddaughter right now. And it’s nearly impossible to get any writing done around here!

You can sleep on planes? I’m envious. Enjoy that new grandbaby!
Jane Kennedy Sutton says
I find travel more draining than I used to as well. I suggest taking a few days off and emjoying your family.

It’s good to know what you’re up to. Don’t worry about us….have fun with your family! 🙂

Enjoy your family!

Didn’t sound cranky at all. Just honest. Enjoy your family, Patricia. It’s okay to take a breather from all of this.

Good morning, my friends. thanks for stopping by so early. I’m just checking in briefly before we escape the hotel room and have some fun. I’m finding the laptop on my lap much easier to deal with than the laptop on the desk. Tomorrow’s post will definitely not sound so cranky (or candid as Marvin so graciously put it).
The Old Silly says
Love your candor. G’on’n get your rest, revive your energy and HIT IT tomorrow!

Hotel desks are NOT designed for computer work. I end up stacking all the pillows on the chair. But at least you can sleep on planes. I’m always exhausted whenever I get where I’m going.

It’s not your age, just blame it all on the hassle you have to go through now to fly. Sounds like your priorities are in a good place. Have fun.
