My little adventure..

Well, I got to go to New Hampshire yesterday morning and I stayed over last night all by myself.  It's amazing how anxious and nervous I was.  I discovered that I felt very vulnerable and alone.  I got to go to one of my favorite places in the world, Keepsake Quilting.  It's this amazing quilt shop in New Hampshire 4 hours from home filled with absolute treasures.  I just love to feel fabric - literally put a bolt in my hands and just stare at it and lovingly run my hands across it.  I met up with a friend and we had a wonderful dinner. 

I went to a terrible movie, The Change-up.  I just had a feeling like I should go to dinner and then back to the hotel room but, my goodness, I just am like a dog with a bone sometimes.  I was bound and determined to suck every opportunity out of that day and, by golly, I was going to see that movie.  I actually walked out of it, it was so vulgar and gross.  So, I finally made my way back to the hotel and what a room I had!  It was beautiful and spacious and the only drawback was there was no tub, only a shower.  It is the 21st century, right?  Where was my bathtub?

I laid on the bed, had a pepsi and read my book and finally took a deep breath at 9:00 at night!  It was luxurious to say the least.  The only times I cried was when I was at the quilt shop and I just felt so very far from home and how I would love to tell Sean so many nuances of my trip.  It was an adventure and I actually learned a lot about myself on my little sabbatical.  I'd love to make this a yearly thing where I leave my children with really wonderful people and I go somewhere all by myself.  For just one day.
