I am going on vacation.
By myself. No Husband, No kids.

This is the first time in my adult life that I am doing what I want on vacation. In the past all vacations were spouse or kid centered.

I made the decision myself - without discussing it with anyone - and planned everything myself.

Oh..and.. I'm paying for it by selling off the jewelry he gave me and his wedding ring.


I'm feeling pretty good right now.

Thanks everyone!

I'm going to a little island off the coast of Maine called Monhegan (Population 65 only accessible by boat!). I'm doing a painting workshop that I have wanted to do for years but I have never been able to go because of XH.
I have a little cabin all to myself.
I'll be hiking and painting then painting and hiking.
Heaven.
Bonus - it's a place we've never been together so there will be no triggers.

You ROCK! Good for you for giving yourself this gift. You will absolutely LOVE every minute of it..

My first solo vacation was going to Chincoteague Island to watch the annual Pony Penning. It was something I had wanted to see since I was a little girl. My ex had NO interest whatsoever. So of course we never did it. Because if it wasn't for HIM or his DD then it didn't happen.

Have a wonderful time!!
