One of The perk to being a coach in Tiny Town is a three-day trip to coaching school. Perk? Um, yes. The hotel is paid for (two nights). Transportation is provided, and a meal allowance given. Families are welcome.
Last year we took the kids. They had a ball splashing around at the hotel pool and exploring the local parks and zoo. We had a great time.
This year? Grandma and grandpa offered to keep the kids.
I’ve been shopping clearance all over town (there is a mall here… and Target… and Starbucks… and restaurants!), hitting garage sales (quite successfully), and catching up on my google reader. All by myself.
I adore my children. I love spending time with my family.
I also treasure a few evenings alone with my husband and the rare scheduleless/laundryless/dishesless days all to myself: going out for ice cream even though we’re stuffed from a big Mexican dinner, watching cable tv from the bed, and shopping… all by myself. This coach’s wife thing… there are perks.
