I'm currently sitting in a coffee shop about 60 miles from home. John offered to stay home with the kids for 24-hours while I went away on a writing retreat. Last night I drove to a beautiful hotel and slept in a king-sized bed all by myself. Now I'm trying to finish up chapter 3 of my dissertation before heading home.
John suggested I take a 24-hour getaway once a month until my dissertation is finished. At this rate I'll never be done. Wink, wink.
