Yes, I really did. On the 12th of October I went with Mike (yepper.... only Mike...no kids) on a business trip to Boston. We spent 2 nights, 1 full day, 2 half days touring the city (well, actually Mike was stuck in some fancy hotel while I toured the city). It was so refreshing to be totally on my own to see whatever I wanted to see. Sydney could not understand why I wanted to be by myself and not with her. I reassured her that I always prefer being with her but once in awhile it is okay for mommy to escape. The kids were in the safe hands of my in-laws (thank you-thank you-thank you) being spoiled with soda and pizza.
I was able to see freedom trail in depth, read an entire book (Eclipse), eat at a Magianos, tour Fenwick Park (I know I am weird, most ladies would of chosen to shop), and tour an art gallery. It was a cheep and refreshing trip. And now I can finally say I have seen Boston in the fall.
