Well, I've been neglectful of this blog the last week.
My husband and I went away this last weekend. Well, actually, it was only 26 hours :), but it was nice getting away and spending some time together. After his working 12 hour days for three weeks we thought it a good idea to run away! We didn't want to travel too far since we only had 26 hours, so we picked a local (45 minute away) hotel/resort/casino. I know. Casino. We don't gamble. When we lived in the Las Vegas area for three months, we about had our fill with casinos. Smoky, smelly, noisy casinos. The atmosphere isn't really my ideal vacation environment, but it really wasn't too bad. We had to walk through the casino to get to the fun stuff, but fortunately they had a "no smoking" gambling section and so we plotted a trail through that! The hotel had just been remodeled and the rooms were nice. It had a nice indoor pool and hot tub for my husband (me? not bathing suit material - - especially in public!! -- instead, I brought my Kindle).
We made our way to an all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant, where we had brunch and then later dinner. And movie theater. They had a cineplex with five screens. Yea! So, we saw a couple of movies - Bourne Legacy and Diary of a Wimpy Kid!
It was just a nice, relaxing getaway. And we will do it again . . . every month . . . that is our goal. Go somewhere one weekend a month. Can't wait til September!
