Are you sitting? Get ready for this. I’m in Cabo. With Lenny. Without the kids. For five. whole. days. So, as you can imagine, I have a bit of a different perspective this week.
Lesson #1: Saying goodbye to the kids left my heart a little broken and my face a little tear streaked. Saying hello to a tropical paradise, on the other hand, was a much easier transition.
Lesson #2: Those four free cocktails in first class became a whole lot pricier when they resulted in a carefree Lenny leaving his new iPhone on the plane.
Lesson #3: While I do love my new morning ritual of a green smoothie, I might love it even more if I added the ingredient they use to make theirs at our resort. Tequila. (Kidding, of course, Cristie.)
Lesson #4: Everybody has different vacation cravings. Mine has been reading—and I’ve totally indulged myself.
Lesson #5: While I may be an introvert, I’ve had a great time getting to know my husband’s “other” family. (Did I mention we’re here with about 30 people he works with? Oh, and I’m not just saying I like them…none of them read this. Yet. But since they’re kind of like my family now too, they won’t really have a choice.)
Lesson #6: If you give two moms of young children an empty dance floor, you better stand back or join in.
Lesson #7: Michael Jackson makes everybody your best friend. So do a few margaritas.
Lesson #8: Lenny really likes when I wake up at 8am on a kid-free vacation.
Lesson #9: He likes it even more if I talk a lot when I wake up at 8am on a kid-free vacation.
Lesson #10: The early bird catches the whales breaching. And the best lounge chairs.
I better get back to doing nothing. Adios, from sunny-ish Mexico.
