Oh where, oh where can she be?

I'm still here. Last week I wasn't, however. I was here instead:

It was a last minute trip South of the Border. Threat of hurricanes and tropical storms be damned! We had an opportunity to spend a few days in paradise and we jumped on it like a starving dog on a raccoon carcass. Or like me on the complimentary minibar and all-you-can-drink margaritas.

(No mas tequila. No mas.)

For three days we were treated like royalty. I thought it was hard coming home from BlogHer this year but it was nothing compared to coming home after being able to open up the shades in the morning and stare at the ocean all day while ordering room services and doing nothing any more taxing than having a small Mexican man named Gabriel massage my shoulders or read a book a day.

Reality doesn't bite, it sucks. It sucks hard.

But all good things must come to an end and so did our short stint in paradise. Back to the toil of laundry and waiting for the school bus and needing to schedule things like haircuts for my children who decided to play hairdresser while on their grandparent's watch.

Maybe I'll take some more of that tequila after all.

It sounds like paradise. I'd like to be there right this second. I'm glad you had fun. Tad bit jealous, but still glad. ;)

For someone who hates her feet so much, I have a lot of pictures where they're an important part.

Ok, maybe I am but MAN am I jealous.

Your second toe is longer than your big toe... I'm not the only freak! Everyone else are freaks, not you and I!
