solo in san diego

After I dropped the kids off at school on Wednesday, I headed down to San Diego. I needed to assess a student that afternoon, as well as the following morning. I did the assessment at the downtown library (which is HUGE!) and afterward drove to my hotel. I've never stayed in a hotel by myself and I must admit it was pretty relaxing!

Nothing like plopping on a hotel bed!!

I took a break from relaxing and went down to the hotel gym. It's been  a long time since I used a treadmill and I loved how fast the time went since I could watch a show at the same time! Sidenote: Notice how the TV is in back of me? Very odd that all the machines were facing away from the TV, making it so the only way to watch was through the mirror!

Afterward I had to work on a few things to prepare for the next day, which ended up taking longer than I had thought.  My hotel also was in a commercial area, rather than on the beach. This made it so I really didn't go out and explore the cool parts of San Diego, however I did treat myself to some frozen yogurt when I went out to grab some dinner. :)

The morning involved staying in bed for a long time and drinking coffee with flavored creamer!!! I'm not sure why, but I always get super excited when places provide something other than plain cream and sugar. :)

This next pic is dedicated to my sister. Back in college, she spent a summer with Campus Crusade for Christ, working as a maid in Yellowstone National Park. I remember her coming home and telling me what a treat it was to enter a room and see that they had stripped the beds for her. Ever since, every time I stay in a hotel, I always strip the beds before I leave. So here's to you, Susan!! :)

My assessment the next day went well and I was able to head back home before traffic. Overall, I must admit my solo trip was quite nice. :)

Oops--my comment from yesterday didn't post.

So glad you had a good time in San Diego. Yes, it's kind of fun to be "on your own" for a night, isn't it? And having a per diem makes eating the "free dinner" even tastier. :)

Your hair looks cute that way.
