I’ve Gotta Get Out Of This Place…

…if it’s the last thing I ever do-oooo….

Song stuck in your head yet?  Good.

But seriously–I need to get out of my house/town/state.  Very, very badly.  And as I sit here, on the edge of a four day weekend, I’m thinking there MUST be somewhere I can go.  I need to go somewhere.  If only for a few hours.

On my way to work this morning, a fox crossed my path.  I don’t really live anywhere all that rural, but I was taking a back road from breakfast to my school, and a fox darted–and I do mean darted–out in front of my car, and continued to run through the field on the other side of the road.  He was running really, really fast.  And for a moment, I became that fox, and understood that freedom.  I want that freedom very, very badly.  I need that freedom.

I think this is what they call cabin fever.

If, four days from now, I do not have a post titled something like ‘this is where I went today’, please feel free to post mean comments.  I’ll totally deserve them.

  1. Like I’ve suggested before- come down to NC. Weather this weekend- highs in the 70s. Ashville- Biltmore house, artists colony, wine. Piedmont- furniture wholesale, wine, BBQ. Charlotte- NASCAR, gold mining, lakes, sports, BBQ, our hotels and resturants, wine. Sandhills- golf, wine. Coast, seafood, sand, waves, (wine????? maybe not so much). Let me know if you decide to come!!!

    • Awww…thanks for the offer, and I’d love to, but there’s a reason why I said ‘if only for a few hours’. I have no one to watch our dogs. I was hoping to get up to NYC today to do some museum-ing, but alas it was not to be. I fear I actually will have to write an ‘I didn’t go anywhere’ post. Sigh….

      Oh–and highs in the 70s? Enjoy!!!!!
