This past Sun-Tues, I hopped the Greyhound alone (since DH wasn't able to make it), to Vancouver, as I had some DR's appts there. I actually ended up having a good time. I called DH about 25 times, so I don't think we had much time to miss each other, but it was still good to get away. I stay at this little B&B a few blocks from my appts...I love it there. I just enjoyed Sunday evening..I walked to Starbucks (of course!!), and grabbed a "coffee", and came back and had a very relaxing evening.
Monday, I got up in decent time, and I had a wonderful breakfast, and went to my appointments. I also went to Starbucks btwn the first two, waiting around to meet with my cousin and his family. We had a quick lunch, and then I went to see my Lung Specialist. He said things were going well. I then went to UBC for my Neuro appt, and she was very happy with everything. I ended up going to Whitespot for supper, mainly b/c I wanted a half decent supper, and I didn't feel like walking too far. I had a lovely supper, and enjoyed my time alone. I am one of those people that don't mind eating alone (at least not a lot). I walked back to the B&B, and just spent another night just relaxing and watching Monday night TV that I don't usually get to watch. I slept a bit better the first night. I woke up around 8 the next morning..had another wonderful breakfast, and went to London Drugs to get a few things. And of course, I stopped at Starbucks on the way back:). I packed up, and stayed until noon, since my bus didn't leave until 2. I got the Bus/Train station early, and I grabbed a drink at Mcd's, while I Facebooked. The trip home went well. I had the seat to myself most of the time. DH took me to supper at BP when I got in..sooo good!!
I am saying all this to the fact the yes, sometimes I DO like not having kids. I don't have to take them with me, or find someone to look after them. I can have a (mostly) good night's rest each and every night. I can go to Sbucks when I want to...read, pretty much do whatever, whenever I want.
