I can’t believe it….we’re actually gonna DO it this time! We’re gonna take a mini-vacation, and nothing has stopped us! This is great! I just hope I didn’t jinx it by saying anything. Some people think I may be nuts for going so far on just a 3-day weekend, but hey…it’s a chance to see people, do some shopping, and have some fun! I think everyone needs a “sanity weekend” every once in a while, so this is our time! There is so much I want to do, and yet so precious little time to do it in. At least we have a nice comfy place to crash, so we won’t be sleeping on a floor (I really must learn to invest in Aero beds), and we’ll be on our own time table since every time we’ve stayed at someone’s place, we’ve been held by theirs…..and no offense to anyone who has ever been very wonderful and very gracious, but I kinda like being able to come & go as I please. I guess it’s just something I’ve gotten used to. I know we’re definitely doing it when we go on our major trip next year – that’s for sure! That, and booking rooms in advance is definitely the way to go.
It’s not like it used to be, where you could just toodle into town and find a room anywhere. There are just too many freakin’ people! It’s a population explosion! Although…with gas prices being so outlandishly expensive, I probably won’t see as many people on the road. Every SUV I DO see though, I’ll be thinking “there is someone who’s making the arabs very happy right now” – until someone talks Congress into drilling in ANWR anyway.
Open roads, here we come! Yayyyyy!
