I have been in need of a vacation since about mid January when we found out that we were expecting. Not just any vacation but an escape!

Then Paintboy decides to put the house on the market. After completing the 100 or so things that needed to be done the "escape" was never more necessary.

As we speak, I am sitting in a lovely condo on Longboat Key. It is the same place we have visited before, the average age for the island would be 82. The Publix closes at 9pm, but don't worry they serve their people well, 6:30am they are open again. I am not kidding, the whole island rolls up early. No excuses for the kids to do anything but swim and Mommy gets her book and umbrella on the beach. Beautiful!

All that's missing is a fabulous cocktail. That will have to wait until next year, I've already booked my "escape" time!
