It was wonderful.  No, I didn't go anywhere like that...lol

I had my husband pull our camper out to this quaint little RV site about 40 miles south of the city.  No sirens, no trains, no barking dogs as most people there are retired people traveling which is right up my alley.  We bought a brand new camper last year and it's very nice and comfy to hang out in with Full hook-ups (water, electric, sewar)...a flat panel tv, a shower and potty, a seperate bedroom, and a decent slide out to make the living accomodations greater in the kitchen and living room area(It's like pulling a little hotel suite out to the middle of nowhere..minus room service..haha).  It rained and snowed the whole time I was there so I wasn't about to go out in it..lol

My husband came out on Friday night to spend the rest of the weekend with me...again, it was still freezing cold out.  And, don't ya know, late friday night...midnight to be exact, while I'm sleeping, I wake up freezing and a major headache....I ask hubby to turn up the heat.  OH, there wasn't any heat because we ran out of propane running the heater.  Thank goodness I packed many extra blankets that always stay in the camper...and our bed had a heated matress we hadn't used yet until that night.  It saved us...haha.  but, we could have drove back into town and into our own beds I suppose.  It made for a fun adventure all the same.  :)

Quoting Esmrlda:

 Aw man, I would love to do something like that. Did you go to a nice town that you could go for strolls and window shop?

Quoting momma-t42:

Last week, I went out of town and spent a whole 48 hours alone (I had the two french bulldogs puppies), by myself, few interruptions... Just me having time to gather my thoughts, spend time in prayer and be at peace with where I am.  It was SOOOO refreshing, I'd like to do it again soon.

 Oh thank goodness for that heated mattress.  Thats nice to be all cozy in your camper. Its fun to meet the traveling people too.  Weve been in our trailer in a cold night before on an air mattress and the air mattress felt like we were sleeping on a block of ice!  It was miserable.  Whats up with your weather?  snow still?

I now treat myself to mani/pedis. Love that. I get myself new bags/shoes every now and again.

Having adult children means all the "extra" funds can go to me! Lol.

Honestly, lately I do a lot for myself.  As most Moms do, I have spent the majority of my life doing things for others, including my MIL (she doesn't drive).  So this year I decided it was time to take back my life, so to speak.

I signed up for Kick-boxing classes, I bought a new treadmill and I have been going tanning.  I also bought DH & I new bikes. I went shopping for some new workout clothes and bought myself several new pairs of sneakers.  In case you couldn't tell I have been on a fitness kick. LOL

For the first time in about a year I loaded 5 new books to my kindle and am actually taking the time to read them.

I have also booked a trip for DH & I to go to Florida for a week. We are spending a few days visiting my Mom & Dad and are then spending the rest of the time in Key West.  I bought myself some new jewelry for the trip too.

Beyond that I always have monthly lunch dates with my girlfriends and I play tennis with my BFF 3 days a week.

Wow, there are a lot of "I's" in that post, probably more than I have ever used.  Though I have always done some stuff for myself, I have really started focusing on things that make me happy.
