Ran Away

After I dropped my son off at school, I decided to grab the dog and run away. I really didn't plan on this at all as it was all spur of the moment.

Following the rules set by my Migraines, running away meant I couldn't leave until the next morning and I had to return the day after no later than dinner time. Sigh. I guess any time like this is a good time and I won't complain. I really can't.

We ran away to my parents house. My parents weren't home for the two days we were there which was exactly what we needed. The dog had an excellent time. She loves to run and swim which she still could not get enough of during this time. I brought work to do, but luckily, I mean unfortunately, the internet connection was not working properly there so I could only do limited work while there.

Maybe about every two hours or so, my work blackberry would get enough signal and send through my work emails. After I would read them, I would know I really needed to be off off from work and take the dog out for another run and swim. I bet she was never so happy to see me get frustrated. It guess it was good for both of us.

This time away was good although when I am out of my element, I can be very absent minded where I forget how I have to live my everyday life. I don't understand how or why I do this. I've been living this way for a long time, yet change a couple of things or do something last minute and I forget everything. Go figure.

There was nothing to eat at my parents house which meant I needed to pick up a few items that I could fix while I was there. I was good about picking up some foods, but others I was not. Not even a second thought while I was in the store or consuming the products at my parents house.

Do you ever get this absent minded? I'm usually pretty good about it even if I see a food I am craving. Or after I get home, I can leave it alone, but not there, not these days. It completely didn't register until it was too late.

I don't know, maybe next time I will actually plan to run away and I'll put sticky notes everywhere to remind me to eat my approved foods. Food triggers still sound so silly to me although I do believe totally in them. I still don't understand how some good foods can make you feel so bad and strange. Someday, I hope we'll have the answer to all of this gobbledygook. I know I have to work on being better when I am out of my element. I thought I was past this...

the swimming sounded lovely. You need a day off from discipline too!! So hope it didn't make your headache unhappy!

I really needed that too. One of my biggest problems is probably balancing my work time and time off. My head is not my best friend today, but I have deadlines I have to meet today. I only have me to blame, but I'll get through it.

Sounds like the perfect day for both of you :)

We did have a good time and have to do it again soon. I think it also helped her with the transition of my son going back to school. She is so attached to him.
