Caregiving is stressful. Forums like this provide a great way for us to connect with others in similar situations, vent a little, find support, and glean information. All very helpful. But speaking for myself I wouldn't mind a little vacation too, even if it's only in my imagination. We've all wished at least ONCE that we could close our eyes and just Be. Somewhere. Else.
So...if you could snap your fingers right now and go anywhere at all, where would you go? A cafe in Paris? A tropical island? An archaeological dig in Peru? Share your dream getaway here, and maybe just for a little while we can "escape" vicariously through one another. Feel free to change your point of destination at any time.
As for me right now...it would be a hammock strung between two palm trees looking out over white sand and green-blue ocean with a frosty fruity DEFINITELY alcoholic beverage in one hand and a good book in the other....ahhhh, paradise!
