houseguests

1 Aug

Brian left town yesterday for his week of backpacking through the woods. I was sad to see him go but he’s sooooo excited to drop off the grid for a few days, camp, hike and take pictures with his best buds from college. I realized Monday night as he packed up his bag (a very heavy and large backpack that he has to carry for 5 miles a day…sounds awful, right?) that since moving in together last year, I had never stayed in our place alone- it’s usually me packing up and leaving for trips! But this time, I’m the one getting left. I like this less. I went out for dinner last night and when I got home I walked in the door to silence. I missed his voice excitedly saying “honey!!!”, followed by a hug. I’m so accustomed to having him around. He’s my partner in crime and my best friend. The silence won’t last long though. My cousin Brooke and her two kids, ages 1 and 8, are coming to visit me from up north tonight. It should be a fun 5 days of hanging with some of my favorite humans. On the agenda- the beach, walks, shopping, eating and last, but not least, a day at Disneyland. I haven’t been to Disneyland in ages and I am looking forward to riding Peter Pan (my favorite as a kid) and to eating a funnel cake (maybe two). I guess going to Disneyland is kinda like an artist date. I won’t be alone, but it’s a good exercise in letting my inner kid out to play! Lots of pictures to come…

    How exciting! I’ve never been to Disneyland, but it’s on my list.

    I can totally imagine how you feel. My house would seem totally cavernous without Husbandio.

    It all comes down to- You are a full and exciting person, in your own space. This time will give you lots of “Inner Me” expression, and nothing does that better than Disneyland with loved ones.

    If you see a Photopass person at Disneyland named Lindsay, with shoulder length, dirty blonde hair, tell her I say “hi!” She’s my best friend who was so darn lucky to get a job there… not lucky, actually… since she is absolutely talented… but yeah! I love that place so much. It truly is a happy place. Also, if you want the best corn dog in the world, get one by the photopass look-at-picture-places. It’s a small little place that normally has a line but seriously…. best corn dog ever.

    Have a fun five days!! =D I would so love to hang out with you!

    OMG be prepared for a few changes to Disneyland. Like Johnny Depp in the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and no more Swiss Family Robinson treehouse… But so much fun, especially with kids.
    PS I secretly love the first night of a house to myself. A chick flick, some kind of yummy take-out, a glass of wine. But then I miss my BFF, too. 🙂
