We leave for vacation this weekend. Me, W and the kids.
If you are a regular follower of The Flannel Files, you know I’m not a fan of leaving the house. Except for my writers’ group and a really great sale on flannel.
W is a Sagittarius, an adventurer by nature.
Me, I think a good book and a bottle of a craft beer is an adventure.
W has the trip all planned out. We will be trekking from Philly to Mystic, Conn., Providence, R.I., Plymouth, Mass., Boston and Salem, Mass. I think that’s the plan.
These are a few of my favorite things.
I will pack those things that bring me comfort. My books, my tiny Moleskine notebooks and silver astronaut pen. My fleece pajama pants, even though it is summer. My bright-red Phillies cap, even though we will be in Red Sox territory.
I would pack my spirit of adventure, but I’m not sure I ever got one. I will bring my sense of humor, because that always comes in handy.
I am hoping to score a Wonder Woman Pez dispenser at the Pez factory in Connecticut, a hot cup of chowder, a slice of pizza at Mystic Pizza. And maybe time to write a story or two.
