We had a lot of fun. We drove to Fargo (5 hours away) for three days to do some shopping. We stayed at the Radisson Hotel - Bon Jovi was actually there one of the days we were, but we didn't run into him. We shopped from morning till bedtime and gabbed the whole time. We forgot to take our turnoff on the way home and ended up driving an extra 2 hours to get back on track.
at the hotel - talking to my hubby
We just hung out a lot, played cards, watched movies and played with the kids - and Tommy. :) It was really good to get away and rest. I kind of feel bad, because I slept in until 9 or 10 every morning and still took a 2 or 3 hour nap in the afternoon. And I was constantly eating. I thought I'd gained at least 5 pounds while I was gone. I only gained 2, so that's a plus. I probably would have gained 5 if I had eaten as much chocolate as I wanted to. I am a chocoholic. But the thought of chocolate makes me nauseous, so I don't indulge as often as I used to.
napping - yet againThe only bad part of the vacation was flying. I had to fly overnight on the way there and that just about killed me. I can NOT sleep sitting up. I was trying to limit the amount of water I was drinking so I wouldn't have to make the two people next to me get out every 30 minutes - because somehow they both managed to sleep. In doing that, I was more tired and nauseous than normal, so one of the times I got up, I almost fainted. I started sweating and getting light headed. I had to squat down and put my head between my knees until it passed. How embarrasing! Needless to say, I took 2 naps the day I got to Wendy's. The flight home was during the day, but I had to take 4 different planes, so I was once again exhausted and over it. I made it to church the next day, but just barely.

I had a great time visiting Wendy, but I'm also glad to be home. Two weeks is a long time to be away from my husband and kids!
