We've Gotta Get Out Of This Place

My husband and I took a mini break this weekend for a concert and overnight stay at the concert venue. It was great. They upgraded our room to a junior suite, dinner was fantastic, seats were 4th row center, and the concert was outdoors and the weather was perfect. We enjoyed the concert - Heart rocks - even after all these years, but the concert seemed too short. The next day we got up and went for a long walk/talk and watched the ships go by. After checkout, we cruised over to the beach and went boogie-boarding, more walking and out to dinner. The two downsides were having to come back home to reality and making the mistake of weighing myself after a long "free" day. I know it's mostly water retention, because I did splurge and have a few drinks at the concert dinner, but it's still brings things back to reality. I know that by Wednesday or Thursday my weight should be back to normal. Hubbie has some things to handle at work, so we're probably not going to leave again until Wednesday or Thursday. We're just going to pack the car and go somewhere, no where in particluar, probably up the coast.

I need to get out and run.

Have a great day!

Peace

"if it's the last thing we ever do". But, I never know the bands name.

Your weekend's sound a lot more fun than mine.

NSM,
I didn't elaborate too much but it was a much needed break! The concert was fantastic...

Pat,
We usually do house related stuff and long runs on the weekend. I think this was one of the best weekends we've had in a long time.

Barbie2be,
Winner, of course! I need a whole week like that weekend...

Waddler26.2,
I knew that, eventually, things would turn around. I've been needing a great weekend and run for a long time. :)
