About a month ago..I was having a really stressful day. I'm not getting enough time to write and I am constantly battling what I want to do versus what I should do- and those things change from day to day...whatever I do, I feel like I should be doing something else. Add in household chores and spending time with my kids. It's the battle all writing/working moms deal with on a daily basis.
And then my hubby suggested something we had talked about a while ago...me just going and getting a hotel room for a couple days. All alone. No distractions. Just me and my writing. Sounds like writer's heaven, huh????
And a hotel turned into a Bed and Breakfast. Luckily there are many within a 2 hour drive from my house (my max. driving distance). But the selection decreased when I put a monetary limit on it. But still, I had plenty to choose from and a B&B would be far more relaxing than a hotel room and would include a great meal.
So I booked a two-night stay at Marienthal B&B...check it out..it is really awesome!!
I am really looking forward to it. Part of me does feel guilty. But sometimes we really have to do things for ourselves. Plus, the kids have really been missing their dad lately...he's been working a lot of overtime.
Have you ever gone away, just you, for some rest...or just some alone time?
