Chillin', originally uploaded by diahn.

I'm taking a vacation from vacations. Yes, Linda - all 42 of them have officially worn me out. This week - nada. Actually, the next couple of weeks will be pretty restful for me. Next week, the boys go to day camp for 4 days (12 hours a day), so I'll have Monday through Thursday to do whatever my little heart desires...I'm hoping my little heart desires to spend a lot of time in my studio slinging paint. I'm going to be spending this week ensuring that there are no excuses up there - that everything is clean and organized and ready to go.

Then I'll be back on the road again the next week. This one was a surprise to me, actually. The boys are going to their grandparents houses and I thought I'd have another week at home, but Dr. SmartyPants informed me that he has a conference to go to and a surplus of miles in his account and that I'm going with San Francisco! mom tells me that I was there when I was a baby, but that doesn't really count now does it? My first trip to San Francisco! dear blogging's where you come in. I know all the touristy places to go - and I have a few things on my list, like the Frida Kahlo exhibit at SFMOMA, and the bay tour under the Golden Gate, etc., but if you know SF, what would you spend your time doing? I'll have about a day and a half, maybe 2 completely on my own to do whatever I want, then another day and a half with Dr. SP. I'd love some suggestions on things to see, places to go, etc., as well as some AVOID AT ALL COSTS things!

Now, I've got to go shopping for some really smashing clothes...
