I'm Alive

February 20, 2013
I have no idea how there could be only eight days left in the month. Furthermore, I cannot believe it's been 3 weeks since I've posted. It seems this month will clip by at record pace. Even January flew by and I didn't travel at all. Frank did enough for both of us. He was in Cleveland for work for two weeks and Chicago for a week visiting his family. When February rolled around I was very happy to have him home and it was a comfort to know travels this month would be done together. We just had to get past Superbowl. He worked around the clock finally coming home around ten o'clock Superbowl Sunday. Then, finally, it was sweet vacation. We had a 6AM flight to Cancun with a connection in Houston. We stayed a week at Al Cielo hotel. We love the hotel and Xpu-ha beach so we return again and again. This time did not disappoint. In fact, I'd say it was the best yet. We were reluctant (me more, than Frank) to return home, but we knew there was more fun to be had. Getting back to the grind would be worthwhile.

This past weekend I had three days off, thanks to President's Day. I kicked off the weekend with girlfriends, we went to Firefly for dinner before seeing P!nk at Mandalay Bay for the Truth About Love Tour. I've never seen a show quite like it. I was totally blown away! If you ever considered going to one of her shows - Do it!

Then, Saturday we went down to Laughlin for two nights. Laughlin is always good fun. This time was no different. We drove down to Needles, CA on Sunday to meetup with co-workers that were camping at Pirate Cove. We brought the RZR down to go off-roading. It's a great set up for camping. The trails are better for quads and dirtbikes so I don't see us returning... but now, we know. Before leaving Laughlin Frank and I played Keno. I was feeling our numbers so we bought 21 games @ 1.75 each. We kept hitting 2 or 3 of our numbers, but after the 17th game we won our four spot, 4 1 9 7 came in! Cashed the ticket for $386 when the games were through. I was pleased.

This weekend were staying at Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa. We love La Jolla, but this is our first time staying there. The hotel looks really nice. We got a great deal booking a Travelzoo deal. I'm very excited to head back to San Diego. It's my favorite home away from home.

We'll catch a slight breather before going to Phoenix the second week of March for White Sox Spring Training and offroading. Then, Frank will work around the clock for March Madness. We'll have a visit from my sister and Nicky just after my birthday. I'm very much looking forward to spending time with them. Mid-April we're off to San Francisco, the last weekend we have friends visiting and I am taking my mom to see Tim & Faith for her birthday. Then, in May, we are heading to LA to see the White Sox and then to San Antonio to see the sights. I suspect it'll be June before I know it. I'll work to find time to resume a normal schedule around here.
