24-hours in New Hampshire with a Cold

It’s rare, of late, that I go anywhere without at least one member of my immediate fam in tow. This is not a complaint so much as a reality.

That said, I took off for a 24-hour solo stint to New Hampshire this month to check out the University of New Hampshire’s production of If/Then, much to my glee. Again, reality dictated my fate: this is an adult-only show that young-un cannot attend, and her Dad stayed at home with her, because parenting. And laws.

But this all lead to an opportunity to blog travel again, with a bent toward solo-chick! So let’s go:

Never underestimate a Motel 6 when it comes to a quick, solo trip. Not only will they leave the light on for you, the turquoise, IKEA-esque decor is just right for when you just want to sleep, already. Wait, I just got here. Why am I sleepy? Crap. I think I’m getting sick.

Great lighting, too. But those under-eye circles…

I had dinner at the Tuscan Market with my sister and BiL — all three of us went with the prosciutto, mozzarella, fig jam sandwich. Amazing, even throughout the sniffles.

The UNH campus is super cool! Love this lighthouse of concert flyers. Also my eyes are watering and I can’t feel my nose.

My baby niece in poster form! I’m so proud. I’m breathing through my mouth at this point, but so damn proud.

The theatahhh…ah…ahHHHHCHOO

Again, props to Motel 6 … it was unnervingly quiet all night for an economy stay in a college town. My extended Ragusenson family also lives in New Hampshire, so we met for brekkies! I almost tasted my Benedict!

My niece… in past posts on this blog, she’s been referred to as “DQ” (Drama Queen). Her reign continues… with an honored performance as Elizabeth in If/Then.

I drove home to the dulcet tones of Angry Mancave…

…did I mention I saw my sister?
