Mom Vacation - Day 1

We're heeeee-re!!

After a late start (caused by me, I had forgotten to do a report that the doctors' pay is dependent upon-can't have an irate accountant and/or doctors bothering me on this responsibility-free vay-cay!!).  We hit a bit of a snag outside of Gainesville (overturned tractor-trailer, which my very superstitious companion stated, "You see, we were meant to be late for a reason....otherwise, we may have been involved in that!"  so now I am guilt free also :)  

We stopped in Gainesville for lunch at my favorite place...CHIPOTLE!!!  I only have it once in a great while now as I tend to eat addictively....there was a time that I was eating Chipotle at least 3 times a week which not only was enough calories for the entire week, but cha-ching...10 buck a pop does not make for an economical work week!!

After Gainesville, it was smooth sailing except for potty breaks.  One of the best things about traveling with Jenny is that she drinks more water than I do (which is a lot) and our bladders are on the same time schedule.  One of our stops was at a Cracker Barrel...clean bathrooms and shopping - what more could you ask for?!!!  We picked up some chocolate cover pecans (we are in Georgia after all- I think that's a requirement, therefore, the calories don't count) and an audiobook, "While My Sister is Sleeping" by Barbara Delinsky...good so far with the exception of some erroneous medical terms being flung about and a bitch of a Mother, but that's for some good reading!!

We got to the Westin about 6, settled in and went out to dinner with some of Jenny's fellow trainees.  Company, drinks, and food was good, our waiter sucked!  We came back about 9:30, got in our pjs played our facebook games (another addiction), and fell asleep.

I awoke this morning at 9:30 naturally, no awesome is that?!!  Went to work out (my trainer will be so proud) and now I am typing, munching on pretzels and drinking my am is good!!!

I think I'll go get a mani/pedi today and hang out....tomorrow I get to meet KAT!!!  so excited!!!

I am so excited about tomorrow! My oldest saw on the calendar that we were getting together and she wanted to know if she was going to be dragged along...such joy!

So far it sounds like a very nice vacation. My husband and I will be headed that way in a mere 8 days and I can't wait.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your free vaca.

The audio book is a great idea. I really like listening to them as I drive - impossible with kids in the car!
