Cape Cod Trip
On Tuesday, we drove up to Cambridge to drop off our son for his three month internship with Harvard University and what a whirlwind trip that turned out to be. While in the Harvard Book Store, I received an automatic alert to inform me that my electricity at home was out due to severe storm damage. Thus began the worry/anxiety state of mind.
We moved him into his sublet, met his one roommate out of two roommates then went to shop and eat at Harvard Square. The rain arrived shortly after we did and gosh! The water just ran down the streets - we were soaking wet with umbrellas.
Sadly, I dedicated a space in my brain to worry about my cat who was without electricity (I had a friend checking on her and feeding her every day) and my refrigerator and freezer foods. I know, I know, I'm not in control. Worriers can't let go.
|I was so PATIENT while he shopped in this store|
Around 6:30 p.m. we left Cambridge and our son to drive down to Cape Cod for a two night stay in Hyannis. Our 1 1/2 hour drive ended up to be 2 1/2 hour drive due to traffic. We arrived around 9 p.m. safe and sound.
Our hotel was lovely but we had noisy guests above us and had a terrible night's sleep. In the morning, we requested to be moved to the top floor (so I could be the noise maker instead of the noise receiver). Not only did they give us a lovely room, but also a $50 gift certificate to a local restaurant for our troubles. I was not expecting that and we were thrilled.
Wednesday morning, we were off in the town, shopping and sight seeing. We had lunch at the harbor then walked down to the JFK memorial and the Korean Memorial. We returned to our hotel, hopped into the car and then we were off to some yarn shops (no photos of what I bought yet) and more sight seeing.
Our selfie photos are hilarious, I've yet to perfect them. However, they are perfectly imperfect.
Yesterday, we drove home and arrived to a house with no electricity. We threw away all the foods and that made me incredibly sad to see such waste. Our electricity came on around 5:30 p.m. yesterday about 45 minutes after we arrived - PHEW!
I vow to: never hoard food in the freezer/refrigerator.
I'd like to vow not to be miserable while I worry but I know I cannot change at all. I am like this and I will be a worrier till the day I die.
However, I value all those strings of days when I'm not worried. I document my contentment and my peacefulness.
Like this morning :)
A trip away is fun, but there is nothing like being home sweet home (with electricity).
PS: I am behind on blog reading due to our trip but I am hopefully visiting you all today and tomorrow!
