All Work And No Play

My husband figured out yesterday that he’s working 90 hours a week right now (including drive-time). And, to be completely honest, I’m not far behind him. I do get a bit more sleep than he does, but I often work 10 to 12 hours a day and that doesn’t include the time I spend cleaning cat litter or taking care of my house. And I cannot, honestly, remember the last day I took completely off. I think, but am not sure, that it was in August. There might have been a day in August that I didn’t check email, respond to a client, work on the frickin’ condo or work on a client project. Maybe. Or maybe it was in July.

The good news is that hubby and I have plans to spend two whole nights and most of three whole days in Tulum, at an “eco-resort” (eco here usually means the hotel is not on the power grid). We plan to bring the nice bikes (we each have 2; 1 nice one, and 1 crappy-city one) which will give us a good way to see the sights and get some exercise. And, of course, the place is on the beach, so we can actually act like tourists and get lobstered and snorkel and hang on the beach. I might even have a piña colada.

I’m really excited to just get away, even though it’s not far from home. It will be a break in the rhythm, a break from this monotony of work and responsibility, and I hope that we can have fun. I expect it will be fun because one of my favorite friends here, and her lovely husband, will be staying there the same weekend. So we have built-in entertainment!

    I’m jealous, have fun in Tulum! And have two piña coladas, but don’t get all crazy with three or a bottle of rum or anything. 😉

    I don’t get crazy very often, especially not when rum is involved. Tequila maybe, but not rum.
