Hanging Out in Playa

That’s Playa del Carmen, to the initiated. One of my web design clients owns a couple of nice condos here that he rents out. One is in Playa and the other is in Cancun. This weekend he was kind enough to let me have use of his Playa condo. So I’m here hanging out with my daughter.

Thus far we’ve done not much of anything. And that’s the point. I’m terrible about taking weekends off, in fact I basically never take two days in a row off unless I’m away from home. I guess it’s a sign that I like my work that I can’t leave it alone for two days in a row. Either that or I’m just pathetic and have poor boundaries.

This condo is located just a couple of blocks from the ocean, so this morning I rose early and took a jog down the beach. The beach here is big and wide and lovely, and at 8 a.m. it’s also mostly empty. I saw just a few other joggers, a couple of families and a couple of die-hard, tan-all-day, leather-looking-skin types.

After my run I came back and read a chapter of Barack Obama’s book Audacity of Hope (which is really GOOD, by the way) and then fell asleep in the hammock under the palapa for a little while. Life is tough in paradise.

    Kim, I am such an a-hole. My friends had a party Saturday night and I drank about 2 liters of sangria, which made me incapable of leaving not only my house yesterday, but also my bed. I hope you can forgive me for not calling you. I’m so very sorry.

    Heather – Not a problem at all. Believe me I understand how easy it is to drink too much sangria…hope you feel better today!

    Hey, anytime you want a vacay – we’re not only here but have kids. For some reason I didn’t know your daughter lived here. Maybe it is vacation time for her? Anyway, next time you’re in the area, don’t be a stranger. Email me and I’ll send you our phone number.
