Getting Out of Dodge

Now that I’m a stay at home, I find taking trips is fundamental to my sanity. Prior to baby, I took trips for granted; now I count down the days to abort ship. About a month ago, my husband told me we had to postpone an impending trip by 7 days because of work. I almost died inside! Did he have any idea how much I was looking forward to this trip, how much I needed this trip? Of course he didn’t, when I worked I didn’t think trips were as special as I currently do. Now that I’m home all day, the anticipation of a trip is a mental sanctuary. So if you are a stay at home and getting a little stir crazy, do everyone a favor and plan a trip, even if it’s for one night. For reference, we will be leaving on our next trip in 43 days. Got any good trips planned?

  3. Hi there! Found your blog on MBC -- I'm your newest follower! I 'm always looking to get out of dodge too! My next trip is to California in July. I've never been to San Fran and L.A. before and I can't wait.


  4. Dawn, thanks for the comment. CA is great and I hope you have a great time! Thanks for following me, I'm now following you.

  5. Great tip Tvstake! Funny how you can even book a room in our own town at a cool hotel with pool... and feel like you are getting away.


Thanks for stopping by - it's appreciated!
