Still Haven't Found My Camera

by Deborah

Overlapping the time Emily was off making art and beautiful memories in London, I got to go to Puerto Rico with my husband for a very quick trip.  He was there at a medical conference, and I tagged along for a few days.

It was awesome.

We got in after midnight Friday, and I left early Monday morning, but that left a glorious Saturday and Sunday to enjoy the exotic isle, mostly on my own since he was in seminars all day.

So I slept.  I slept late in the morning, had some lunch, took a nap, had dinner with my husband, and went to bed early.

I slept late the next morning, got a facial, had some lunch, hung out by the pool (and napped), then rested in the hotel room (and napped), went out to dinner, and then went to bed early.

Man, I was tired.  Sleep is a beautiful thing.  Even more beautiful than Puerto Rico, which is oh so lovely.

Despite the Herculean efforts required for me to go away (childcare and laundry and packing lunches and emergency numbers and pre-paid stuff and groceries and boarding the dog......), despite how tiring and annoying travel is these days, it was completely and totally worth it.  Mostly because I am a much much much nicer person when I am not tired.  Just ask my kids.

Best vacation ever.
