I'll lay off the heavy stuff today because it is Friday and I am in a lighter mood. Chicken fingers last night:-) Just me and Munchkin, and she had some things that she needed to talk through. Nothing at all serious, just some basic seventh-grade social stuff that she has totally under control but needed to say out loud to confirm that.

Short version...the boys at school are getting antsy because she won't "date" any of them, on account of the French boy. I use the quotation marks because they don't actually go out on dates, they just sort of announce that they are "going out" and that is pretty much it. There is a party next week that qualifies as a major social event, and there is one boy that really wants her to go with him, and her friends want her to go with someone, and well...I won't bore you. She's got it under control.

Kind of a fun weekend planned...I am taking The Boy on vacation without going more than a couple blocks from home. As I have sort of passed over here, he has had some shit going on lately, and he is in desperate need of some time to unwind a bit. We are going on vacation in a couple of weeks, but that will be with Munchkin and the whole gang, so I wanted to try and get some time just for the two of us.

As such, we are checking into a hotel for the night tomorrow to pretend that we are on vacation:-) And yes, the hotel is basically on the other side of Boston Common from our apartment. Between the two of us, we have a bunch of points accumulated and some of them are set to expire pretty soon. It seemed like a good idea to cash them in before we lose them, and to take advantage of one of the posher downtown hotels. I have hour-long massages scheduled for tomorrow afternoon, and a tentative plan for facials on Sunday morning (he may need some talking into on that).

Beyond that, there is no agenda at all. We may stay in bed all day, or we may hang out at the pool, or the sauna...whatever he feels like. I just want to give him some time to relax and be pampered a bit. And no, this is not just a cheap excuse for me to artificially generate some hotel sex (although, if that is not on his agenda, I may pout):-P

And that, my friends, is about it for today. I hope everyone has a nice weekend:-)

Have a fabulous fake-cation! It sounds lovely!

Still just me said...

Have a wonderful weekend.

Interesting though, the hotels around here don't rent to locals.

Fake-cation sounds like such a great idea. Of course I'd kill for a real-cation been as we haven't been able to afford one in over a year ;)

Hope you had fun! :D
