What I learned about myself on my glorious weekend away…

I’m way behind on the internet.

Actually, I’m way behind on everything. I’m even way behind on being way behind.

That’s what happens when you take two days off from all your jobs to get dental work done and to go on a mini-vacation to stay in the beautiful Hotel Havana on the river walk in San Antonio, and to camp in the wilderness.

I learned a few things about myself this weekend.

#1. It is absolutely glorious to take a break from social media and the internet. I wasn’t sure I’d survive a weekend of no cellphone service, but it was glorious!

#2. I will never be able to successfully pee outdoors without falling down in it, but a tree is a very useful tool.

#3.  I can eat a chili dog without barfing it up on whomever is sleeping next to me. (The previous time I ate a chili dog, when I was seven, resulted in me barfing on my cousin’s head.)

#4.Even at thirty, pretending to be stranded in the wilderness due to a zombie apocalypse is really fun…. even if you’re the only one pretending.

#5. Popping your head up in the middle of your boyfriend’s panoramic photo is the best game ever.







#6.   It feels really good to become one with nature.

#7.    The dentist is not my enemy. In fact, it’s kind of fun to have numb-mouth. You can even gnaw on your lip for hours without feeling it.
