I am feeling good. I am sitting on a white, soft, pillowtop king size bed down at the MGM Grand Hotel in beautiful Detroit..hah....
Yep with the help of several sitters (heidi, who is watching the older 3 and my sister in law and nieces watching the trips) my husband and I were able to escape yesterday at noon and we are still lounging in our room 24 hours later. Life is good and a regeneration is even better. We dropped off the kids and headed downtown. We grabbed lunch and checked in to our room. We then got ready and headed down to the bar. We were having a drink when we ran into one of Davids old work friends and had a ball talking and catching up. We grabbed a cab at 8pm and headed over to the Book Cadillac to meet up with Davids highschool buddies. We were back in our room by 12:30 ready to settle in for a long needed, full nights sleep. I am proud to say that I slept 10 hours without interruption. It was heaven. We woke up and ordered room service and have done nothing but veg out......I think we need this once every couple of months to recharge the batteries.
The kids all had a ball I am sure. Heidi was planning to take the kids to Chuck E Cheeses so she was heading out when we left yesterday. It sounds like they got her to stay there for a longtime. The babies I am sure were spoiled and have been held constantly for the past 24 hours. My niece Lauren even came home from college to hang out with the babies..so sweet. I called this morning and she was napping with Colin...How sweet. I love having family that like my kids.
Well this is the end to a long week of winter break and now I am very ready to get all the kids back to school tomorrow and return to the normal routine for awhile. It should be uneventful until our next break in April... Back to reality
