Kevin and I got away for the weekend, on vacation alone for the first time in years. Sadly, it's also been about that long since I last really relaxed. We read, we lounged, we walked. It was so nice to do things at our own pace and not because one kid needed to eat, sleep or was having a meltdown. One more day would have been perfect.
The only snag was that as we arrived in Mendocino - and back into a cell phone reception zone - both of our phones started beeping. It turns out we locked my parents (and kids) out of the house, while the dog was stuck inside. After some stress and a few calls, it all worked out, but I don't recommend beginning a weekend away like that.
