realization of the day

I would not be a good twin (which works out fine since I'm not one).

I'm leaving today for Seattle. I normally don't post that I'm going out of town, just that I've arrived back home. Since there's a picture of my house on here and terribly intelligent yet criminal minds in cyberspace, I'd like to avoid being robbed blind. Please don't rob me, intelligent criminals.

For some reason, leaving to go on a trip for leisure instead of business makes me want to get more things in order around here. It's not like I'll be gone longer than some of my regular business trips. I won't. It's not like I'm traveling overseas or something. I'm not. Maybe it's because I'm losing a weekend at home. I'll get back only to turn around again (at some point during the next week--shame on you criminals for trying to figure out when).

As I was getting a few things done around the house this morning, I was thinking about going on this trip alone. One of my best friends told me she could take off tomorrow and she could go, too. The thing is, sometimes I just need something for myself. I need to have something the next guy doesn't. At this stage in my life, where everyone around me is getting married and/or having babies, it feels harder to say that I have one up on the next guy (at least with important things). So this one I'm claiming for myself. A few days in Seattle. With a snazzy (yet discounted) hotel room. And limited plans. Just a little information about the area, my camera, and blessedly good weather.

I hope you have lots and lots of fun! And the hotel does look very chic.

Have fun!

I officially LOVE to travel alone....before Bubba I did a lot of things alone. Live, eat out, exercise, even vacation. And it was great. You go and have fun! Did you see Giada's Weekend Getaway's (food network) when she went to Seattle? It was totally awesome. Maybe there's something on her website to see where she went.

We watch a lot of food network at my house....
