my Girly weekend

so, I know... I have been back for a week....
but it took me a week to get back into the swing of things....
you see, when the mom leaves a house of boys....
things happen.
things like failure to use toilet aim,
things like tiny toys stay in really strange spots and live there,
things like a purchased (good night, they went out to buy whipped cream!) whipped cream bottle sprayed right in the mouth,
things like.... boy stuff that I, a girl, have no idea..... nor do I want to know.

but, a 4 day weekend away... was worth the whole gamut of catch-up.
my view all weekend long!
I slept! (a ton!!!!)
I read.
I got to sit in silence (which refuels me!).
I had breakfast for dinner (which doesnt happen at home with an autistic son).
I caught up with the neatest woman I know,
and relaxed.

We went into Ashland for a day (pedicures, picnic lunch, a gospel concert, and salted caramel ice cream!)
howie is ticklish beyond belief!!!

 We toured the Shasta Caverns.

And spent a whole day watching Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers, and Shirley Temple movies (probably the best day EVER!!!)

Seriously, a weekend away.... alone... without the family.....
is always a good idea.
If you dont take this time....
you are missing out on what it feels like to be completely refreshed and refueled.
Drive away.... book your tickets.... do what you need to do.... BUT DO IT!


    Next time, count me in :)

  2. Wow! That looks so fantastic - glad you had such a good time! xx
