This Doesn't Make Sense...

LAst year we did far more on holidays. We started on the first day with 3.5 days of driving in summer heat and tenting with 3 kids and a neurotic dog in the heat of August. ANd we ended with 3 days of travel (one of them quite long) in September.

This year we started with 3 days of relaxation, then a week in the city 2 hours drive away, then a visit from family.

And I am far more exhausted and stressed 3 weeks in than I was last year. Not well rested at all, stress level as high as 3 weeks ago (which was fairly high as I chart my reactions to things).

THis was supposed to be a nice relaxing holiday. Why was last year's more active one more relaxing? Is there that much to be said for going away?

  2. I think it depends on many things. Has anyone from the church been keeping you connected to what's happening there? Sometimes that makes a vacation at home feel very little like a real vacation. Therefore the stress.

    I know people mean well, but on vacation I DO NOT want to know what is going on at church.
