vacation from vacation

We got back from the Wisconsin Dells today (I’ll post pictures in the next couple of days). We were gone for two and a half days and I’m completely wiped out. We had a great time. I love getting away with Bethany and the boys, but I definitely wouldn’t describe it as relaxing. Parker’s old enough to entertain himself, but Kent…well let’s just say he adds “spice” to the vacation experience.

I’m starting to realize something about myself. The last couple of times I’ve been away from home overnight, I’ve had an increasingly hard time getting a good night’s rest. Last night in the hotel I tossed and turned. I felt like I was up all night. I think it’s the pillows. I never thought I’d say this, but I think I might have to bring my pillows with me. Is that weird? There’s nothing special about my pillows. In fact, they’re crazy old. I’ve been using them for at least 8 years. But for whatever reason, I just can’t get comfortable with the hotel pillows.

Maybe it’s because I turned 30 this year….oh well, at least I’m back home with my pillows.

  1. Hmmm. Maybe you are just getting more creaks and achey bones…that happens when you get old (read 30). jk. I always have to have good pillows when I sleep, otherwise I stare at the ceiling all night.

  2. I never sleep anywhere as well as I do in my own bed! Nothing wrong with bringing your own pillows.. as long as there’s room in the car!
