OK, I admit it....I left work a little early yesterday. I ran into an issue, and since everyone who could help me was out of the office, there was really no point in me sticking around doing nothing.
I only left an hour early, so it's not like I took a half day or anything, so back off and stop judging!!!
I got home yesterday and Jim had done a TON of yard work. There was not a leaf to be seen in the front or side yard. It looked SO great. As it turns out, he spent about 6 hours doing it.
Not only that, but he then proceeded to make a chicken, spinach and butternut squash risotto for dinner that was 'simply delicioso' (Food Network anyone?). Lucky, lucky me.
After dinner, I cleaned up (it was the least I could do) and Jim went online to try and find us a hotel to stay in down in Florida.
Oh....did I not mention that we're going on VACATION?!?!?!?
Yes, it's true....we're actually going on a vacation.
The last time I went on an actual vacation (you know, where you fly somewhere and stay in a hotel) was our honeymoon over 3 years ago.
Needless to say, it's LONG overdue.
We're going to spend Thanksgiving with my dad and step-mother in Fort Myers (that's in Florida - just in case Miss Teen South Carolina is reading this) then after a couple of days we're driving down to Miami Beach to visit one of my best friends for a few days (we've been friends since before kindergarten) and then returning to Fort Myers to hang with the folks for a few more days. We're very excited.
This is where you - my faithful readers (assuming there are people actually reading) - come into play.
If any of you have any suggestions as to where we should stay in South Beach (or reasonably close to it) please let me know. Feel free to ask your friends and get back to us....but make it quick - we're trying to make our reservations as soon as possible. :-)
We're also interested if you know of any places that should be avoided as well...that's just as important. And yes, we're asking my friend's opinion as well, since he lives there and all, but I wanted to put it out there for all of you to think about. I'm sure some of you have either been there, or know people who have - so get crackin'!!!!
Florida, here we come!
