I’m in the midst of planning my first trip without my family. Ever. Ever.
Did I say ever?
Oh, I was supposed to fly to see my sister after she had her first baby, but I got the Flu from Hell and stayed home, dying a slow painful death. And I have done a few weekends away with my husband over the years, but overall, I stick to the homefront, usually with a nursing baby in tow.
But, now I’ve kinda committed myself to a real live trip. By myself. I’m heading to Nashville next month to meet Sarah Palin and hundreds of bloggers at Blissdom. (OK, Sarah Palin isn’t attending the blogging conference, but she’s a keynote speaker at another conference in the same hotel.) Still….
