Recently, I have been feeling a little down in the dumps, someone told me that perhaps I should take a little time for a getaway… Well, it didn’t sound like a poor idea, but I made a commitment to myself a couple of years ago that I was not going to take any more Vacations By Myself.
When I go on vacation I have no option but to go alone; I decided that was a waste of money because I really don’t savor it like I should.
Oh, I decided that I should listen anyway & go ahead & just take a weekend away. So I made a reservation at a hotel on the beach oh, & off I went. Well, of course it had to rain the whole weekend. So here I was stuck paying $250 a night for a weekend getaway where there was nothing to do except sit & look at TV. Well anyway, I decided to make the best of it, & the way I chose to do that was to use the air conditioning like there is no tomorrow. I remember when I was a child I used to be blissful to go to a hotel because I could adjust the temperature control on the AC all the way down as low as I wanted to, but nobody got frustrated with me, & my mother didn’t say leave the temperature control alone. Well I decided I was going to live like a child this weekend, so I chose to release my inner child & crank that air conditioning dial all the way down, but this particular Hotel had mini-split AC units for each room or Suite of rooms, so it was self-explanatory to set the temperature control down to 60 degrees & crawl under a whole bunch of blankets. So that has what I did… And that was an amazing little getaway & I feel a hundred percent better. Occasionally all you really need is some good, free Heating & Air Conditioning.
