Time alone in a big city...Holy Batman!

Well I'm here....in the big city. Monday came way too early. I was up at 4:30 am after sleeping only a couple of hours. I guess I was excited about my big trip to the city....and spending time with my hubby. It was all I could do to keep my eyes open all day. We arrived early enough to grab some lunch and walk a couple of miles around the city before Kelley had his late afternoon meetings. These 100 degree temps added to my fatigue or maybe it's the lack of exercise I have let consume my body. I have no more excuses....time to get this old lady up and motivated!

Today I have had so much alone time and it's only 2 pm. Not sure if I like this or not. However, I know it's good and much needed. But how does a mom of many learn to sit still and relax? Other than throwing them at my little ones, those two words haven't been in my vocabulary in a very long while. Today I took off on my own and ventured into the city. Mostly because I needed nourishment. I found this great little cafe...thistle while you work.  I felt like such a country girl walking the streets of this big city. Maybe by the time we fly home, I'll have tried many more sweet little resturants and walked many more miles in this heat. Look out Rachael Ray...I could bring back your $40 a day show!

Our hotel is set back across the lake from the city next to the Bat bridge. It's a bridge where millions of bats emerge from under the bridge at dusk to blanket the night sky. Bat Bridge Here you can get a glimpse of what I'm talking about. I knew I should have brought my cape!

It's time to go lounge by the pool ! Maybe I'll just take a nap.... Oh the life of a mom of many! I guess I should be careful...I wouldn't want to get too use to this....would I?!
