We're baaaack!

We had a WONDERFUL trip to Cancun and are now back to reality. Yes, this week consisted of a business trip for the husband, another doctors appointment for my 4 year old son who has yet another ear infection, more trips to the pharmacy as a result of said ear infection, a 3 hour long evaluation to release my 3 year old son from the speech services he was receiving through Early Intervention and (last but not least) registering the older son for kindergarten for the 2005/2006 school year. And all the while, I kept torturing myself by thinking, "This time last week I was laying by the pool or this time last week I was getting a massage." Why did I do this to myself? Because I am a glutton for punishment, that's why!

Cancun was our first trip alone together since our honeymoon and although leaving the boys for the first time was difficult for me, I got over it rather quickly. When we arrived, it was sunny and in the mid 80's. The perfect getaway from snowy Philadelphia! People were handing me flowers and drinks from the moment we arrived at our hotel. Over the next 3 days, we swam with the dolphins, went to formal dinners and breakfast meetings (for Steve's company) took an ATV tour of the jungle.... I had spa treatments nearly everyday. It was the best trip I've ever been on; probably because all expenses including the spa treatments were paid for. I really could have gotten used to that! Now do you see why I have been torturing myself all week???

In all of the busy-ness I haven't had the chance to knit. I am pouring through some magazines and my Stitch-n-Bitch book to find some patterns. That's right people, I'm branching out. I am sick of scarves and I've finally gotten to a point where no one is asking me for any, so I'm seizing the opportunity. If anyone has any suggestions for a non complicated pattern for a somewhat new knitter, I'd appreciate it. In the meantime, I'll keep my eye out for one.

Hope the house is sick free this week after such a relaxing week
Love that photo! Your trip sounds like just the relaxation you needed even if it went by fast! Back to reality, eh?
