I WILL BE FREE. FREE AS A BIRD. Hallelujah. God does indeed read my blog.
There is a photography seminar in Boca Raton that I was invited to attend. Then the lab I print with gave me an unbeatable discount on tickets and I realized that I could go over there for the day, a short trip, at a minimal cost and continue my photography education.
Then I told my mom I was going and she said that sounded fun and she would go with me because she absolutely cannot stand for me to be driving around on interstates by myself. Then we decided that really, maybe we should just go over there the day before and spend the night, just so we're not like rushing around and stuff. Just somewhere cheap.
Turns out, there's nothing cheap in Boca Raton and we could either stay in a shit bag hotel for $130 or the Hilton owned hotel that is hosting the seminar for $190. Guess which we picked? (Mr. Ashley doesn't know yet and probably won't know until he reads my blog, unless he specifically asks, and he won't.) There is free breakfast.
Then we decided we should check out the new Ikea while we are over there, since neither of us has ever been to one.
So we better leave early.
So, it is looking like it's going to be a pretty kick ass weekend for me. I will be kid free for MORE THAN 24 HOURS, in a nice hotel, in a ritzy town, doing things that I love (shopping and photography). KID FREE. KIDLESS. SANS KIDS. UNENCUMBERED. Worrying about ME, ME, ME and wiping my own butt and only my own butt.
