Blogtember: 3 months off...

Okay, before I get into my post for today - can I just have a moment to whine about how bell peppers are 2.99 EACH at Harris Teeter? What?! I actually don't understand how this is even possible. Just for fun I looked up my old grocery store and they are 88 cents a piece there. Are bell peppers seeds in North Carolina encrusted in 14K gold and watered with the tears of angels? I don't get it!

Enough of that. I guess I'm doing this Blogtember thing...I'm a little nervous to commit to it but I'm enjoying the prompts so far and figure I'll play along at least for awhile.

Wednesday, September 4: If you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do?

This is sort of a funny prompt because I have just hit the "three month off" mark from leaving my job in Texas and moving to North Carolina. And truth be told, if I could take the ideal three months off, it would not be this. Job hunting in a new city is stressful, y'all! I had such a great network of professionals in Texas, and I don't have that here yet. And I find it hard to enjoy the time off because unlike vacation, I never know when one of the cover letters I send will get a response. I think I'd do better with a definite end date.

So, if I could take 3 months off, I'd gather up my husband, our friends and families and go on a bunch of epic vacations. A week here with friends, a week somewhere else with family. I'd love to go on a cruise and explore a bunch more islands with my husband, get a cabin in the woods and eat hot dogs on sticks and s'mores by a campfire with friends, tackle some European cities neither my husband or I have been to (it seems like all the cities I've been to he hasn't, and vice versa.) Definitely some beach time at my in-laws' place in New Jersey - it doesn't all have to be fancy! Then, I'd like a week to just BE and do crafts and fun stuff at home.
