Early last week I was invited to Los Angeles for a set visit on one of my favorite TV shows (more on that later!). Despite the fact that we are in the midst of renovations on our home, I’m crazed with work and I’m hosting my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah in less that two weeks (did I just say that?), I replied positively.
I flew out last night at 6:30pm and I arrive back home tomorrow around 7am. Yes, I will have been gone approximately 36 hours. From NY – L.A. and back… in the blink of an eye.
Some people may think that I was crazy to leave everything going on in my life and take a trip to L.A. for 36 hours. Some people may not understand.
You know what I say to that? We have to do what’s right for each of us, and this was the right decision for me. As a pop culture writer and junkie, I could not turn down the opportunity. Everything going on at home will be waiting for me and will be going on tomorrow. The Bat Mitzvah planing will pick back up. The home renovations will continue with my input. My family will survive. And me? I’ll have had this amazing experience.
I’ve written a lot about solo travel and why it feeds my soul. Check out my latest post on GoGirlfriend for a complete top ten on how travel has made me a better mom.
Meanwhile, I’m milking my last hour in the hotel room.
