Let's go visit Roomie!
Yes, that is the extent of my wanderlust these days.
Different rooms of the house are considered 'travel.'
Now before you start throwing labels around like 'agoraphobic' or 'weirdo,' remember I live on the beach. Not nearish the beach or a few blocks away, but ON THE SAND.
Going upstairs is considered 'a trip.' And definitely going out to the garage is an adventure.
I know it is hard to comprehend how lured in you get, until you live here.
I don't have to 'go to the beach, ' I can just look out the window to the surf. My backyard is a sand dune... literally. My side yard is the Pacific ocean.
Now if we stayed in our house all the time anywhere else, that would be sad and more than a little pathetic, but when your windows open up to the beach, you feel included in everything going on out there.
Just yesterday we watched a game of sand volley ball, waved to the surfers, cheered on a Golden Retriever catching a Frisbee. All without having to leave the comfort of our home.
We have decided we aren't 'agoraphobic' but 'inland-aphobic.'
Because going inland requires that we get in the car, which means we have to put on shoes which means we have to FIND our shoes (I know, a sin against my incredible shoe collection).
Which is just WRONG.
Do I expect you to have sympathy for me? Of course not. I am assuming you are bitter and jealous #asyouhaveeveryrightobe
I just you know, felt like you needed to know why if you searched under 'travel' in my blogs... um... you wouldn't find any.
