When vacation ends the Sunday Scaries hit SO hard even if it isn’t Sunday. It’s not that I dread going back to work, but more that I miss my small family all being together in our favorite place: Rome, Maine.
When in Rome (ha!) we spend our days sleeping in, lounging on the deck reading, floating, boating, and cooking/grilling. My parents also volunteer at the Travis Mills foundation to keep themselves busy. It’s relaxing and the perfect summer getaway because it’s basically in the middle of nowhere. To give you perspective, Julie and I had our first job scooping ice cream at the country store and the owners remember us by name even if that was 12 years ago.
I’m here just to recap some of the fun had.
Vacation by numbers:
1 bajillion bug bites (they love me)
4 hours volunteering for veterans on the 4th of July
3 floats for the females (Dad uses the noodles)
2 happy puppies
1 very bumpy boat ride (so fun!)
1 talk with dad about finances and the future
