Me Time

You know, there are just times when a girl needs her own space for a couple hours.  Being together 24/7 in the small space of a Class C could be a problem for some couples.  It works well for us and we enjoy all that time and close togetherness.  But occasionally, I need a little time to call my own.  Today was one of those times.
Espada Mission, San Antonio, TX

We had originally planned to hike at Warner Park with our friend, Herb, this morning.  However, the rains rolled in yesterday and were forecasted to continue throughout this morning.  Some folks don’t mind walking in the rain and I can if I have to, but if I don’t have to I ain’t gonna.  So the thought occurred to me last night that I could bug out of the hiking thing and have myself a few hours of “me time”.  Gene was fine with that and I got my mind all wrapped around the many things I could do this morning.

When Gene got up and looked at the updated weather forecast, he decided he wasn’t so eager to walk in that much rain either.  He and Herb swapped emails and phone calls and I was on the edge of my seat wondering if I’d loose my time.  I didn’t need to worry.  Gene and Herb were happy to drink coffee instead of hike so they headed off the local coffee spot.  They didn’t get through with their trail talk before lunch so they moved over to the Cracker Barrel.  In the end, I probably had more time to myself than I would have had if they’d gone hiking.

How did I spend those few hours?  Cleaning up my computer and working on my photo project mostly.  When I got tired of that, I got out my book and read for a while.  It was a very fine morning.

That’s it for today.  Thanks for tagging along.


  1. There is nothing better than a little "me" time! Glad you enjoyed!!

  2. so glad you enjoyed your 'me time'..just one question?..are you getting more comments now that you have been welcomed into the 'blogging fold' than you did on 'trip journal' or is the traffic about the same??

  3. I'm with you, Judi! Randy & I have no problem being together 24/7 in 450 sq. ft., and I'm grateful for that. However, there are times I'd like to be alone, nobody breathing in my space. :) It does happen once in a great while and I try to make the most of those times.

    Looking forward to seeing you in December.

  4. alone time makes a very healthy marriage!
