After his recent hernia surgery, we decided to cancel our planned vacation, and we went up to DC for the week. He went back to work, and E. and I hung out.
As a family we went to the American Indian Museum. E. and I went shopping. We went swimming. We went to a bookstore. We took in a baseball game as a family. And best of all (for me), we relaxed.
I was sad to miss our planned vacation…at first. But I realized that I would never have felt that relaxed had we done it. So I think this is a win-win.
We won’t have the place in DC forever; probably only until January. But while it is there, it is good for us to use as a base to see the sites.
