I need to get away.
The last few weeks have been crazy-making; my nerves are fried and jangly as a result. But there’s help on the horizon: a kid-free 3-day weekend.
I’ve got a car, and money for gas. I have no pressing obligations here in town. And I’m thinking an impromptu solo trip to the coast is in order: just me, a stack of books, a few bottles of wine, and plenty of time for long, rambly walks on the beach, time to contemplate the ocean.
So where should I go to clear my head? The last few times I stayed at the coast, I had kids in tow, so we rented a condo. Now, I just need a room – somewhere that won’t break the bank, please (sorry, I’m just not the solo camper type.)
Yep, I know it’ll be hard to pull off on Labor Day weekend – and yep, I could just start working the phones. But I’m hoping someone out there will have other brilliant ideas instead…!
THANK YOU to all the commenters, emailers, and even IM-ers and Twitter-ers out there! I got a ton of great suggestions, and after just a few phone calls this morning, scored a room in Rockaway Beach right on the ocean. So I’m off tomorrow, woo-hoo…!
