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.
