Taxes done? Check.
Refund coming? Check. Check.
Exhausted? Most certainly. But, I will go on record to say that although I may be tired I am rested, if that makes any sense. I’ve had some girl time….sans kids. Which in my book is the best kind when you’re talkin’ a massive house in Palm Springs with 11 girlfriends, food enough to feed most of the free world and enough alcohol to fill the jacuzzi (no, we didn’t get that crazy). Did I mention sunshine? Yep. A day at the La Quinta Resort with a hot friggin’ rock massage to die for? Oh yes. A dance-off with the regulars the Arnold Palmer Bar where the average age is 65 and the skin is bronzed and baggy? You betcha. That last bit was right out of a SNL skit. These ladies were LITERALLY elbowing us off the dance floor. I wouldn’t have believed it either if I hadn’t witnessed it first hand. I’ve got the bruises to prove it. Did I take pictures and are they incriminating? Of course. BUUUUT, I’m afraid I’d be breaching the whole “what happens in _____ stays in ______ ” thing. Plus, I REEEEEALLY want to be invited back so I’d best not be sharing.
Here’s a little something just to show the intensity of the relaxation that was going on over the weekend. This was the view from the back patio where we enjoyed our cocktails. I guess I don’t even have to say that I could get used to that kind of living.
