I’m so tired of working, editing my book, and generally trying to be Layla that I decided to get away for a long weekend.  I mean, I REALLY need a cheap mini-vacation SOMEWHERE.  I figured I could go to the mountains, see the aspen change colors, take a short hike or too, and generally just relax.

I was ready to take off by today (Friday).  Then last night the weather report said there’d been the first (light) snow of the season up around Telluride (it’s at a very mountainous, high elevation).  Because I have no snow tires on my car, this meant I had to rule out that part of the state, even though I really wanted to spend a night in a very haunted old hotel in nearby Ouray.  So I had to scramble and plan on going to a couple other spots at lower elevations.

Also yesterday my director/actress sister in Santa Fe called and said she was driving up on Friday, could she stay with me a couple nights?  Because she has free tickets to the theater and do I wanna go with her?  This is normal behavior for theater people.  They can be lively and fun and funny, but they’re not really big on planning ahead or being practical.  So I’m hanging around on Friday and she can stay alone at my place the other nights.  Keep my neurotic cat company.

I’ll let you know if anything exciting happens on my trip (I saw Sasquatch!  There were ghosts in my hotel room!).

Hope all of you have a great weekend.

    I hope you get the true vacation that you so deserve!
    That sounds like a ton of fun just taking off randomly because you feel like it. I can’t wait until I can do that.

    Ben — Thanks. There really is something liberating about just taking off on a barely-planned brief trip. You’ll love it!
