As an avid introvert, I do love the idea of a quiet space with only a book to keep me company. Now such a luxury comes in the form of an adult fort. Why didn't someone think of this when my kids were young? Granted, it would have been invaded, but I think this is a cute idea.
Yesterday, I visited Fort Mom. I'd had enough teenage angst to warrant a trip to the pedi spa, and I had to drive my daughter to the top of Skyline (big mountain top here) so I made her wait while I had a luxury pedi in a small, quaint shop in the middle of beautiful Los Gatos. Lovely.
When, I had to pick her up on that mountainous road in the redwoods, it was raining and the road is creepy as heck. I'd just watched my ghost show, and I thought for certain the car was going to die, and I'd see someone looking back at me in the rear view mirror from the backseat. The road I had to take in was this tiny, unpaved road with a canopy of dark redwoods all round me. It was raining and the wind was making this foggy, swirl of cloud around me.
Yeah. Fort Mom is calling...though I'd rather have a view, and maybe a house on that creepy mountain road. Because once you're there, it's perfection...View of the entire Bay Area. And not a ghost in sight.
