I would hate to paint over that wood too, myself. But it's your house and you're the one who has to live in it.
I've only had one real vacation with hubby myself, when it was just the two of us and nobody else to visit, no convention to attend. Having said that, I got to go along on his school trips to Italy, which was really cool. I missed this year because I didn't think I could handle it, but I certainly hope to go again in two years. He always takes a few extra days to go visit in his home town, which is also really fun, even if it is way off the beaten track.
I took a couple of unexpected trips this year and was thrilled to discover that economy class had gotten so much more comfortable now that I was at an acceptable weight. I am short too, so I don't feel cramped in small spaces. I'm spoiled in a lot of other areas, mind you, but we won't go there.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
