Our getaway to Arizona was perfection but man oh man ( woman oh woman?) reality really does smack you in the face as soon as you walk in your own front door. I missed K terribly but to be completely honest, it’s hard to jump right back into the whole parenting obligations. Now don’t take this the wrong way, I was eager to see her, more than you can imagine but she was just getting a cold so her attiTUDE wasn’t the best. Welcome home mommy now go away! Ah, if she only knew what I went through to get her here.
Vacationing…..once you have kids, even if you leave them behind, will never be the same. PERIOD.
Ok, enough whining, or wining? Did I mention how tan I am, how many hours I spent in the sun not doing a god damn thing? That is what a quick vacation is all about! <—actually that is not true, we spent about 10 hours playing basketball in the pool.
I actually did leave the house more than once. Since the guys had their Thursday football plans, Kristi took me out to the lake for a bloody mary. Chick didn’t tell me it’s a death walk to get down there.
These stairs were no joke, stable and steady they were not.
And no, the walk back up up those damn stairs wasn’t fun either but I am pretty sure I burnt off two sips of this bad boy!
I think it’s safe to say we all enjoyed ourselves on our getaway. We only had a few hang-ups.
The house we rented through VRBO stated it was wheelchair friendly, I took that as a chair should be able to get into and all throughout the house, including the outside. This was not the case. I haven’t done my research on what the rules are. Should it say wheelchair compliant? Anyone? But now I know I need to be more thorough.
Long story short, a little tweek here, a door off the hinge there and we were all good with that situation.
We also had a itty bitty problemo (go away auto correct) with the alarm system. All of the sudden Wednedesay night the damn alarm decided to screw with us. After a few calls from the alarm company the cops showed up. Shane explained to the nice police officers that we were renting the house and we didn’t have the code to disarm the alarm . The good cop,
not the bad cop asked if he was in town for the game ( Did the Seahawks shirt give it away?) Shane nodded and the the good cop said he was going to the game as well, that is when Shane offered him a Seahawk jersey to wear. That is how the story ends.
This is the third time I have used VRBO and I would most definitely do it again. Although my next vacation might not be until 2016 in Rio, but I can start planning right?
