Tahoe and Freedom

My parents and Gigi went to Lake Tahoe this last week. They were gone for almost 9 days, and I was left here. I was invited to go, but the idea of having some really good me time was more appealing. C'mon, don't judge me. I'm young, single, and I live with my parents. Can you blame me? I mean...really...


They had lots of fun from what they said. They went to church there, went to the lake (the water was freezing...go's an alpine lake. I had no idea), went to the Reno LDS temple, and other such things. Gigi had a good time too. She got to go swimming (or as she says "wimming!"). My souvenir from there was a picture of Gigi all dressed up like an old Western saloon girl, holding a gun, with her little chubby hand on the neck of a Jack Daniels bottle. It is so cute. (Never mind the connotations of the's all good fun...)

For my "me" time, I did just about nothing. It was AMAZING! Sometimes you just need those days where you just hang out. I did that for my days off. It was awesome. I got to catch up on some reading, sleep in, work out a little bit...yeah...I was in heaven.

Don't get me wrong. It's great to have my parents and Gigi back. I missed them. But it was wonderful to have some freedom for a little while.


  1. Sound like a good time--it's always great to have "me time"!

  2. YEA for you! I wish I could get me some of that! :o) At the moment though, I'd take the freezing lake so I would be able to finially get my internal body temperature down!! I'm melting Jake, MELTING!!! :o)
