We are doing something we haven't done since 1990 - leave the kids behind for an extended period of time. Wow, I'm starting to sound like an old fogey, quoting dates like that! In 1990 we left our 10 month old baby girl for 10 days while we vacationed in Hawaii. We used almost all my husband's points on American Airlines and Marriott to do it. But it was sooo worth it! Our daughter was barely walking. Thank goodness we got to see that before we left!
Today we are going to Florence, Italy, to see that baby girl. If you're my blogbuddy you know she's studying abroad this semester. Using those airline points again to get one flight free and staying in the Rome Marriott free also! And yes, we're leaving the boys behind. No complaints from them, they're busy! (Hopefully they won't bring it up in years to come) They're in good hands, though. Got some newlyweds taking a break from apartment life to come and stay with them.
So, I'll miss you! Kind of. Blogging has become a daily part of my routine, either reading or posting! Watch out for the slide show coming soon!
