Coronado, here I come!

I thought I would make it to church this morning. It turns out I'm wrong. I've been running around between parties this weekend trying to get everything taken care of so I can get out of town this afternoon with a clear conscious and a clean house. I still have a lot to do! So Bella and I are at home this morning, sans car, so that I can clean my house, prepare food (as much a I can) for this week and pack. My train leaves Aneheim promptly at 3:39pm and I don't want to miss it!

I would like to say that I really do have the best husband in the world. He has been a proponent of my getting away for the last few months and if it weren't for him, I never would have started looking for a place to retreat. I can't remember the last time I dropped myself off in the middle of a brand new place, completely alone (well, almost completely alone...I will have my Counselor/spiritual guide) for an entire WEEK. Some people, especially some wives and moms, might get freaked out by that. Not me. I'm glad for this time. Christopher and I discussed the other night how I'm a very whimsical person by nature and how my day-to-day life doesn't really allow the type of lifestyle whimsy can bring. He better watch out, because after I get a taste of this, it might have to become a yearly thing (at the very least!).

I'll post again when I come home next weekend! Until then, have a wonderful week. :o)

You know, I caught a glimpse somewhere that it is good even for married couples to take a retreat of sorts alone, that way they can be a better spouse, parent, and ultimately a better person. Good for you. I know God will honor it.

Hey Leanne - I hope you have a wonderful time. I love the idea of going away for a week to refocus and get refreshed. Have fun!
