That's right. Jump in. Especially when it comes to people. I'm a pretty cheap traveler. The thought of plunking down lots of money for a hotel room, and moving that chunk of change from the shopping side of the wallet to the necessary side is not always a joy. But the really fun part of this is stuff like what I did this week. You just move in with the relatives. Sometimes it's friends. You really have to know them well enough to judge if this is going to stretch your friendship. Most relatives just have to keep you. And if you are comfortable, then go for it. I have found that my sister has enough room for us to be together for a certain number of days, I think, before it starts shrinking. Add another person or two, and the time is shortened. I figured if I left on Tuesday, with my mom, and drove to VA, arriving before dinnertime, and then spent 2 whole days, ate breakfast Friday a.m., and headed back, we should be good. And I think we were, for the most part.
I've been here several times now, but the first time down for my mom, to the mountains. We had a good visit. Ate out a bit. Saved leftovers to eat another day. Sat around visiting and chilling and it was good. So maybe it's past time you went to visit someone. Or invited someone to visit you. A night or two on the sofa, or inflatable mattress is good for you!
Have a great week!
