Had a fantastically relaxing long weekend! I made The Boy take Friday off, so we left right after we brought the girls to day care in the morning, drove a couple hours west and checked into a hotel in the Berkshires for three days of absolutely nothing:-) Smoking Hot Roommate and Munchkin took excellent care of the girls, even if they did possibly promise them that we were bringing back a pony...

We've been to this hotel before...when I was pregnant we spent a weekend there. So, last week when it was painfully obvious that I desperately needed to get The Boy a little bit of time to unwind, it seemed like a nice spot to do it. It is not quite foliage season (another week or two) but it is still a beautiful place to be in the fall...especially when we get unseasonably warm days like Friday and Saturday!

Basically, we checked in and, other than spending Saturday afternoon in town wandering around, we just bummed around the resort for the whole time. We played 9 holes of golf late on Friday, which was fun other than my complete inability to play golf.  We ate a lot, went for some long walks, had a lot of really awesome sex, lounged in bed, read, soaked in the tub, had massages and just basically acted like we had no other responsibilities:-) It was lovely!

He did break down and do a little bit of work on Sunday morning (I was getting a pedicure, so I couldn't stop him!) but other than that he did a very good job of relaxing. It can sometimes be a little hard to get him to disengage, but he didn't fight me too much this time:-)

So, all in all, it was a really nice weekend, and a much needed getaway. Frankly, it is going to be sort of a tough fall, so I am glad that he got the chance to recharge a bit...I am not at all ruling out the possibility of having to do this again before the year is out!

You're worried that all your pending political posts are going to make for a tough home life? Wow, I didn't realize it affected you so. =)

Kidding. Glad to see you got away and enjoyed it! I always feel bad for the couples who REALLY feel the need to get away and then spend all their time worrying about the kids. Makes you wonder why they didn't take the kids in the first place!
