I need a getaway.
I'm thinking of a cabin on a mountain somewhere sans children (definitely) and hubby (possibly) with no technology and maybe a book. No, scratch the book. Just a chair, a bed, and food already cooked waiting for me in the fridge. I could sit in silence and just watch the wind blow the trees. Seriously, I'm not a hermit or someone who hates social interaction - but my life is so loud. Quiet sounds good. But, here's the problem: I'm not an introvert. I would go nuts.
Ok, I need a getaway to a romantic city. That's cheap to get to. That's close enough that if I had to get back right away it wouldn't take me three days. And I need friends to go with me, who are in desperation of a getaway too. Hmmm, scratch that. Girls night would be fun, but a getaway? If I got to get away, I would need to get away with my hubby. Definitely hubby - pretty sure he needs one just as much as I do.
Hmmm....scratch the romantic city. The ocean. Now, that's relaxing. A little cute ocean side town - and then we can walk everywhere instead of fighting over how either of us are driving (that's always fun.)
Ok, so no children, with hubby, at the ocean.
And I would need a massage - no, not the shoulder squeeze massages that last 10 seconds that Dave gives, but a real masseuse one. Ooh, a couple's massage - that would be cool...wait, are those cool or a little weird? I wouldn't know. They sound cool though.
No children, with hubby, at ocean, couple's massage.
Yep. There we have it. That's what I need. And I'm sure that there is someone who will read this and say, "No no no, that is a want not a need." No, it is in fact a need - let me assure you.
Anyone want to babysit four heart warming children? :)
