My wife is still working and we could use a small vacay just to break the daily routines. I watch too much TV. She is working as we approach age 66, but she works at our church office, no office politics, no pressure, she knows virtually everyone who may show up at the office. Our dog is. one limiting factor in a vacay. We've never left the house overnight since we got her in '14. I'd love to take a trip to the Smokey Mts., I don't dare to try a trip with the dog. we're getting close to allowing our grandson to "housesit and take care of the dog, but we need a year or two more for that. He loves the dog and vice versa. I just think age eleven is a bit too young.
