Weekend Trip

I finally managed to flee my house and get out of dodge this weekend. My SIL and BIL, the only ones I have now, moved to New Hampshire last year. My hubby hasn't seen them since before his deployment nor since his brother died a few months ago. I thought it was important to go before we move far far away to the land of snow next month.

During the weekend, I managed to exist without naps which I must say was an incredible feat.

We had a great time hanging out in their charming house that was built in the 1700s and also going to Boston. Despite traveling all around the world, I have not spent much time in New England and have never set foot in Boston until this weekend. Between eating, we managed to fit a trip to the USS Constitution and Fanueil Hall with a nice walk to simply take in the city. It was raining the day we hit Boston, so we didn't make it everywhere I wanted, but I still got a little flavor of the city. It's still on my list to go explore though when I have more time. On Sunday, we decided to hit up the local movie theater, Chunkys, for a little "Iron Man II" action. This place cracked me up as you sit at tables and order food during the movie. After our local rinky-dink theater, it was a nice change of pace.

After getting in late last night, we were able to pick up my sweet pup from the kennel. There is nothing like the joy of a dog who is happy to see you! Now she is sleeping at my feet while I guzzle water in an effort to get my swollen fingers and feet back to a normal size. Note to self: don't weigh yourself when you know you are swollen!



  1. LOL at "note to self."

    Glad you had a nice trip. We are leaving Thursday and have to board our precious kitten for 9 days! I hope she's not too pissed off at us when we get back!

  2. I LOVE Boston! I lived there for three years and can still recommend a lot of stuff to do.

    The swelling kinda sucks, doesn't it? Glad to hear that all is going well, though.

  3. I didn't realize you were moving so soon! Glad you get to start off your life up North in the sunshine. Enjoy that puppy love.

  4. glad you had fun! We were out that way AGAIN this weekend... but hopefully for the last time on that house! The people are moving in this weekend, whohoo... now, just to finish my classes and I can ALMOST see the end of the tunnel. We'll have to plan lunch.

  5. I love notes to self....I verbalize them all the time to the amusement of, well, anyone nearby. They are important! Sounds like you had an amazing weekend :)

  6. Am so glad that you enjoyed your trip so much!!

    Stay good.
