So, I am on the 9th floor of the beautiful San Diego Hilton Gas Lamp Quarter. It is a 4 star hotel. The bedding is down, and the mattress is a double pillow top. Basically, comfort is king here. It took us a while to get away from our house today, but we felt the warm embrace of our beautiful hotel as soon as we walked into the lobby. Initially we had planned to spring for a pay-per-view movie upon our arrival, but the comfy room, and beautiful view of the city, changed our minds. We have watched a little TV, and are heading off to dreamland soon. That might sound like a waste of a night away from the kids, but the morning that will follow; sleeping in without any fussing children; will make it worth every penny that was paid. By the way, the vacation is courtesy of my Mom and John. They gave us the funds for Christmas, and are keeping the kids while we’re gone. They obviously remember the days of trying to raise their kids with no family close by. I can’t think of a better Christmas present!!!
I’ll be back in a couple days. I hope your post-Christmas experiences are as nice as ours’. Love and good wishes to all!!!!!
