Love & Marriage Love & Marriage

I'm thinking about going away this weekend, totally alone.

 People keep acting like I'm crazy when I say this. Now, I lived for the first 4 years of my marriage (I was 18 and turned 19 2 months after we arrived) in Japan. I did A LOT of stuff alone. In fact, I could go days without speaking a word of english to anyone when my DH was away at training or such. I like me, and I'm ok just being me.

My parents are having a big halloween party and sleep over for all the grandkids so my DS will be partying it up with all his cousins.

I'm a little miffed at my DH. Not gonna lie. I'm preggo with our 2nd and let's just say it's made me emotionally unfun.

So, I want to go to Denver (2 hours away) get a hotel room, eat out (maybe at Casa Bonita) and walk some malls. COMPLETELY ALONE.

Even my DH, who knows how much I do alone, thinks it's odd. Is it?

I think you should do it! Honestly I'm jealous. I'd LOVE to do that! I don't think it's odd, I like being alone sometimes. :)

No, not weird at all. I'm going to Las Vegas on Sunday, technically with my Mom, but she's a gamble-holic so I'm planning on spending most of my time by the pool in the sunshine with a book. I think not having to talk to anyone and just being able to sit and "be" sounds amazing.

Ok first, I want to say, after watching South Park, I thought Casa Bonita was just a made up place. Second I think that's fine. I would LOVE to go to my hometown completely alone and just wander by myself. I'm going tomorrow back home but I'm bringing my DD which is ok. But I like being able to be free to roam when I'm home

Not weird. If you can do it, go for it. Time for ourselves is important. Hell, it sounds like a dream to me!

 South Park was 100% correct. Casa Bonita is fucking awesome. Now, people complain about the food, it's not great. BUT, who the hell thinks about the food when there are hot, muscular men cliff diving.
