After going on trip with our family to the south east, I think it’s fair to say that we will not be having a family trip any time soon! Not only did my siblings & parents argue about where to eat & what to do at every opportunity, but we also argued about where to sleep at the end of the day. My older siblings wanted to go camping all the time because they appreciate the outdoors. But I am what you could describe as a hermit; I appreciate being inside with air conditioner blowing on me. So I was always trying to stay at a nearby modern hotel. My parents did not understand my AC unit needs; they just wanted to save currency. So, I ended up sleeping outside every evening. I would usually wake up in the middle of the night, soaked through with sweat and uncomfortable, sleeping right next to my oldest sibling who was snoring loudly and directly in my ear ear. It was simply a nightmare! To top things off, the old and beat up SUV we were driving for the trip had an air conditioning breakdown… The six of us ended up driving the last fours back to the lake house without any heating or cooling,. However when we got back the lake home, I was so cheerful to have that cool and crisp air on my me again that I almost broke down and cried with relief. If my parents and siblings ever try to take me on a trip ever again, they are going to have to drag me out of the lake house!
