L.

Are you kidding? If part of being a lawyer is rationalizing a "hotel getaway," then I think I just felt my first tiny pang of regret.

(Shhh...don`t tell my parents....)

Have you read The Hours? There's a scene where Mrs. Brown checks into a hotel that this reminded me of!

Oh yes, sometimes being alone is so wonderful. Right now I am trying to escape my catful apartment half the time.

HAHA! Oh wow... what you wrote in the first paragraph perfectly captures how I'm feeling right now. Damn college! But alas, the stress passes. Sounds like getting away is a great plan!

Er, yes. But I'm not contemplating suicide. Of course, come to think of it, I loved that scene in the book and in the movie.

This is part of that indirect communication, right?

I have to be clear: I am not interested!

On a serious note, long ago, when I was studying for the bar, married, with a 4 month old daughter, I reached the same point. I had spent the first six weeks of the summer studying for the bar and taking care of my daughter full-time.

Fortunately, two weeks before the bar, my then-wife went to her mother's house with our daughter. Best decision ever!

Good for you HF! Also, as a side note, once the immediate crisis has passed, you might want to somehow politely suggest to your in-laws that there are and are not good nights or times to drop by so that its not so random & you feel like you have some clear blocks of time for what you need to do on a regular basis.

I was always eternally grateful for the year I took off between undergrad and law school to work at a soul-sucking firm; it told me that I did not have the constitution or requisite insanity to work 70-100 weeks in perpetuity. Hooray for the public sector!

Got to agree with Mermade - your first paragraph describes how pretty much everyone I know feels right now! A getaway where you don't have to worry about anything is such a great idea.
