I'm off on a trip this evening. I can't believe it. It has been a year since I've gone anywhere without my childen. This year I will be visiting a good friend of mine who lives in Ventura, CA. I'll get there tonight and come home on Monday night.
I have spent some time carefully selecting my clothes, shaving my legs, plucking my eyebrows and applying make-up. I am determined to not feel frumpy. It's a lot of work! Too bad I don't have an iphone or a blackberry so I can look important in the airport and on the plane. Maybe I'll just make a few phone calls and talk quietly but with some drama. I can call my mom, my sister, my in-laws and my college buddies. Yes, those are all very important phone calls to make! ~
Like I mentioned before, this is my second annual trip alone. I think I may try to make this a tradition for myself. I love to travel and it's a relief to be away from my family for some perspective.
