Sometimes it's nice being alone.
The 4.5 hour drive to Columbus was a bit long. My lovely GPS decided to take me the scenic route, which was nice, but country roads mean lots of old, slow trucks. During my worst boredom streaks I thought of names for children I do not have. This was pretty entertaining; however, I of course, wanted to write out the monograms.
Why is it that society is so shocked when someone is out alone? I ate at a "sit-down" restaurant by myself for the first time ever tonight. The hostess was surprised, the waitress was surprised, and I felt the need to explain why I was alone. Pretty ridiculous that we all feel this way. Of course I kept myself occupied/not-so-awkward by talking on the phone, tweeting, & facebooking. Maybe tomorrow night I'll try to just sit there with my thoughts and leave the social media for a bit.
I facetimed Madi & Justin and now I'm enjoying my down-time in the hotel room with Cupcake Wars and brownies.
Alone time is good. Mama needed a break.
