It’s Election Day. What luck, that when I booked a cabin on the coast weeks ago, I didn’t realize we’d be in the woods on Election Day. We are going to drive away from the noise, and I’m going to go fill my lungs with chilly ocean air.
This is also the boys’ first night away from home since they we brought them home from the hospital. Their first camping trip. Our first outdoor trip as a family of four, introducing our sons to forests and beaches, wind and probably rain. We have a bit more to pack when we camp, now that we have two more little butts to worry about. We actually bought a bigger car for just this reason. It’s amazing what little butts will make you do.
I’m not sure what kind of cell coverage we will have where we are going. We will be blissfully off the grid. But I’m sure I’ll make a phone call at the end of the night just to know what kind of country we will wake up to tomorrow.
I need this time away.
