On Island Time


















I actually took a few days off--I know, I know, it's a miracle. I took Friday off (sort of)-- I had a dentist appointment because I broke a tooth. Fun! Then, on Friday, I started looking around on the internet, and trying to decide if I could actually go somewhere fun for the weekend. I had been thinking about it all week. I have been really stressed over the past few weeks, and I needed to go somewhere and relax. I was going to go to Charleston, but I found a resort on Hilton Head Island where I could use my hotel points. It all fell into place. I decided to take Monday off, and I left at a really insane hour on Saturday morning (like 3:30am) and got to Hilton Head at 7:30am. I have never been to Hilton Head before! I stayed at the Marriott Resort there, and it was amazing, and the weather was perfect. Well, the weather was perfect on Saturday and Monday, Sunday was rainy, but I did some writing and reading--which was great. There was an outdoor bar, and they delivered drinks and food right to your chair, and I was completely spoiled, and loved that. Probably the best thing of all, though, is while I was there, I slept like a champ. At night. When I am supposed to.
I never left the resort, I relaxed, lazied by the pool, ate good food, had a few fruity drinks, and just loooooved it. I had a hard time leaving today.
But, I missed the kitties. My petsitter, Lisa, looked in on them while I was gone, so i knew they were OK, but I always miss them. Baxter breaks my heart when I come home, he actually makes little crying noises when he runs to me when I have been gone more than a day. He cries and runs to me when I come to the door and I scoop him up and he buries his little head in my neck and breathes hard and purrs. It is so sweet. It almost makes me cry. He is so attached to me, and is such a sweet baby. Lilly is sitting next to me right now--smooshed against me--purring. Lucy is behind me on the back of the couch. They are always like this when I have been away, they need to be near me when I get home, and to be truthful, I love it. I couldn't wait to see them!
