All I ever wanted
Had to get away
Meant to be spent alone
All I ever wanted
How in the world do I take a much needed week long vacation when the Hunter can’t? That is my current dilemma. I think my solution is a girlfriend getaway. So far my subtle hints or direct asks to my posse have come up empty. Sigh. I could go visit family which is easy and affordable. I actually have family in locales I enjoy, but I need some excitement and adventure. Sigh. I think if The Hunter
asked told me he wanted a getaway I would probably be OK with a very faint alarm bell ringing, so I am hopeful that he would be fine with me packing my bag and hitting the road.
My first choice would be to go to my favorite beach for a couple of days by myself. When my kids were growing up, we usually had a 10-day vacation that was nothing but sand, sun, water, great dining, no makeup — pure bliss for me. We would roll back home tanned and relaxed.
The issue I have to be careful of with the Hunter is jealousy. Not “another man” type jealousy but life style jealousy. I am very, very fortunate. I work from home on paperwork days, I am wined and dined, I win crazy gifts like money, TV’s, iPads. I am given tickets to sporting events. This doesn’t happen every week, but enough that it would make my Ex crazy jealous. Already since I have been with the Hunter I have been out to race a Ferrari on a racetrack (post to follow), invited on a fishing tournament, won $100. If I was in his shoes, I would have to swallow hard on occasion. This doesn’t include free lunches and breakfasts galore.
I need some time away from my normal routine. My quick trip for my daughter’s engagement did show me a couple of things:
- I love to travel and break up my routine
- I needed the break
- Being alone was fine and not a big deal. I actually enjoy my independence.
- I wasn’t overly inspired to make huge plans but I think I am tired which means a longer vacation is much needed.
- Although above I said being alone was fine, I did wonder what the Hunter was doing, was he OK, and I missed having a travel companion a tiny bit.
Perhaps while the Hunter is in a post-coitus glow during our fuck fest, I can bring this topic up. Hehe – oh my womanly wiles.
