Good Bye Reality
Starting today around noon I am turning off my phone and hopping on the train to Maine. I have been dying for this vacation since I booked my hotel. No dogs, no husband, no phone.
At first it was just going to be no dogs and no husband, but the Old Man said I should turn off my phone as well and really unplug. I wasn’t really sure that I needed to be so drastic I, unlike The Old Man, can turn off my work brain and just enjoy myself.
However, the more I thought about the more it sounded like a great idea to just be in a strange place by myself without the need to post about it on social media. I do have a small Instagram issue, but I think it would be fun to go places and take pictures just for myself. Of course you know that some of those pictures and places will end up here, but for 72 hours they will be all mine. It will also be good to be alone and not have the crutch of being able to talk The Old Man the whole time. When I get bored or feel out of place I text The Old Man, I have lost the ability to just be and be awkward. That will change this weekend.
I am also excited to get out of the Boston air and see if I can get some of my creative juices flowing and help me on a story I am trying to get moving forward. Worst case I get a weekend of not having to be responsible me and just get to be fun me. I am also excited to see how I will do not having my phone. I state I am not addicted to my phone and social media, but this will be the real test and I am not 100% sure I will pass.
Sooooo good bye reality I will catch you on the flip side. (and just for The Old Man) ……..
