on the road again

I’m getting ready to leave for a first.

It’s not really a first, but it’s a first-since-I-had-a-stroke.

I’m getting ready to go away.

Gone for the weekend.

Without my kids.

Or my husband.

This will be the first time since November that I’ve gone on a trip for me without my spouse.

It feels a little scary.

It also feels good.

It has nothing to do with being away from the people I love most.

When that truck pulls out of the driveway it will be towards more independence.

    Just don’t go & break your vagina. It made me happy in a tingly way to hug you today.

    You are gonna rock it. And even if you don’t, you’re gonna get up and rock it the next day. I am so impressed with the fight inside you, girl.

    Inspiration takes flight. Safe journey, and good on you for continuing to blaze a trail so many others wouldn’t have the courage to follow.

    Wow! That is so cool. Sometime I’d like to hear how you handled some of the details like handling baggage and stuff. Traveling alone is something I’d like to do again.

    • Peter Mayhew September 24, 2010 at 2:55 PM #

      She’s not traveling alone. She has an old friend going with her.

      • Anissa Mayhew September 24, 2010 at 9:56 PM #

        No, I totally didn’t mean to make it sound like I went alone. I took a good friend who helped me.

    Wherever you’re going and whoever you’re with, just go and have a great time!
