This fall I had aspirations to take weekend trips to Boston and Philly (obviously not on the same weekend). This was a totally reasonable and easily executable goal.
So why didn't it happen? PURE LAZINESS
I really really really wanted, and fully intended, to go both places. I want to see my brother in Philly and give him my old TV (which I promised him a year ago). Also, a group of my favorite people are living in Boston now (a place I have never been).
True, none of those people are going anywhere so the timeliness of my trips wasn't important. I'm sure that was a blow to the motivation voice that whispers in my ear.
I think what really propelled me into failure was Australia. Australia was an amazing trip but it was so much traveling. When we got home, all I wanted to do was be at home. The best time each week to enjoy being at home is on the weekend. I just wasn't ready to give them up.
Of course now it is too late to make this fall a weekend trip success. I'll be traveling for the holidays so it seems like my best bet for Philly and Boston is January or February.
This is exactly what I wanted to avoid because Boston in the middle of winter sounds horribly cold. O well. I did it to myself.
