Flying solo

Last month, I went to Chicago for 5 days with two of my PA classmates for a board review course.

Can I just tell you how EASY it was to fly alone?!?  I made it through security in record speed, sat uninterrupted throughout the flight and even read a book (gasp!!!).  

And even though I missed the little people, I thoroughly loved eating with friends and sleeping peacefully and bathroom time alone.  

Aaron and I will be in Costa Rica for 8 days this summer and I worried about how I could leave them for so long but now I know I can.  It's important for me to have time away so I can remember who I am and enjoy doing non-mommy things.  Plus, I'm super excited to spend a week with poor neglected Aaron!!!


  1. I know what you mean! Last weekend I flew Frankfurt -> Berlin -> Gothenburg and back for the weekend, and it was delightful. One lightweight carry-on. Quick through security. I slept on ALL the flights, AND got to drink my beverage without worrying about spilling it. And then I had TWO MORNINGS where I didn't get woken up at 6:30am! Lovely.

    But I was glad I got home just early enough on Sunday to read Gwen a story before bed. :)
