A Blessed Day Off

Since the weather was predicted to be horrible - I made a decision yesterday to just drive to the town I fly out of on Saturday morning and hole up in a hotel for 2 nights and one full day.

One full day with absolutely nothing to do.

I cannot remember the last time I had the luxury of nothing to do. Of course, I did pack some work into my bag yesterday as I was leaving the hospital, a bit panicked about taking an unexpected day off. I brought my knitting. I brought two books, one of which I have already finished. And of course, I brought my computer.

There is a gym, pool, and hot tub here and I may make use of them later today. I am sure there are AA meetings in this little town and I may try to find one later. I have phone calls to make. I have e-mails to answer. And despite all the shopping I did for this trip, I forgot to buy stockings! But mainly, I hope to stay in this bed and read and nap. I am profoundly tired.

And profoundly grateful.

It sounds like a great day! I am going to relax as much as I can this weekend as well. Enjoy the wedding.

Good idea to get some rest before the wedding -- which will be joyful but emotionally demanding for a mother. And you will look rested, relaxed and fabulous.

Smart move! You can't control the weather but you can be prepared. Wishing you safe travels and hoping you make many fond memories of this special event!

I've been told that a day with nothing to do can be dangerous for an alcoholic. How do you deal with it.

I can't wait to hear how you got to indulge yourself. You don't do that enough, dear. Lighting a candle for you, your trip and your wedding experience.
