Trying to Relax while missing the kids...

QUOTE OF THE DAY: People who claim they don't let little things bother them have never slept in a room with a single mosquito.

Ahhh, much better yesterday. Hubby was working while I slept in, ordered room service, and lay out by the pool. We got moved to a fantastic suite, and the view is amazing.
Last night we gorged ourselves on sushi, crab, oysters, lobster bisque and shrimp scampi, then watched Hitch in our room (highly funny but slightly corny and unrealistic) and this morning, we did something we’ve never done before, well, in about seven years—we SLEPT IN UNTIL 9:30 a.m.!!! (and the only reason we woke up was because we could hear the maids coming to tidy up the rooms)
Today is overcast and windy, but warm. We’re going to the beach anyway, I told my kids I’d bring them some seashells, and then we’re going for side-by-side massages at the spa. Then we’re going for the “best crabcakes in town,” and maybe I’ll coax Hubby into another movie in—we never saw “Phantom of the Opera” in the theaters—I’ll see if I can persuade him.
As for that horrible experience (see previous "from hell" post) the hotel manager personally apologized for the mixup, and they have definitely made up for it. We are just going to block the trip up from our minds, and focus on having some fun—although I will say I really, really miss my little ones!! *sniff*

What can I say, this is my first time away from them in years and years!

Glad to see you're getting a much deserved relaxing break! I'm just a tad jealous of the wondrous that is - no kids. :-)
