Relaxing and Rejuvenating

Tax season is over and my life has gotten where I can breathe easier.  Last week I had an adventure.  I went to the beach with some wonderful ladies.

I was gone for 5 days!!!!  Tom & I have not been away from each other for that length of time before.  I wasn’t sure I wanted to do it, but I did and had a good time. 

Our itinerary:

On the beach by 10:00

Sandwiches, etc. around 12:30 or 1:00

Back to the beach

Return to the condo around 4:00, get ready to go out to dinner

Back to the condo for a chick flick

Go to bed

We repeated this grueling schedule for 4 days!!  I wasn’t sure I could do nothing for that many days, but I managed.  The toughest thing we did was deciding where to eat dinner every night. 

While on the beach, I read Hunger Games.  I’d already seen the movie and decided I needed to read the books.  Enjoyable Smile

I know there are lots of people out there who do things like this all the time.  I don’t.  I like being at home and it is hard for me to leave my comfort zone, especially if Tom is staying behind.  God is expanding my horizons and I am following.  Isn’t it cool He would want me to step out and do something so fun?  God is good and He loves us so much.  Maybe He is telling you to step out and do something exciting and fun.

Hear are some pictures to show you how wonderful it was.

Looks like you had an amazing time. I WILL do this one day. Every girl needs some "girl time"!! I am glad you had fun and even happier that Tom survived while you were gone! :)

I am jealous, but I am so happy for you! What a fun and relaxing time. I think sometimes we have to be forced to take a rest. This sounds wonderful!
