Who's the Bomb?

My darling Sweet Dub, that's who.

In anticipation of my birthday, which is this coming Monday, he arranged to have his sister, Diva, take Viva along on a camping trip for the whole weekend. Merely having a Viva-free weekend would be a huge gift, as anyone who has children knows. You love them, but every now and then you need a break -- especially when you are pregnant and all wore out and broke down.

But lo, Sweet Dub not only arranged a child-free weekend. No, my friends, he also booked us a Club-level, ocean-view room at the Ritz-Carlton. The Club level features dedicated concierge staff and a private lounge with four "food presentations" daily. So all we have to do is walk out of our room, mosey into the lounge, pick up our free food, and go back to the room. It sounds like heaven. I wonder if the concierge will peel and feed me grapes?

I'll report back.

Girl, you can probably see me glowing green with envy all the way over here in the Northeast. God bless that husband of yours and I hope you have a wonderful birthday!

Holy Pool Boy, Batman! What a guy!

And happy birthday to you (mine is 8/17) and many wishes for a delightful day. You deserve it.

Please tell Dub that I find his ideas intriguing and I wish to subscribe to his newsletter, which will promptly be delivered to my beau!

Happy B-Day!!

Thanks everyone! This weekend was fabulous and I am having a truly great birthday even though I am at work (well, you can't have everything). More to come...

My Heart Leaps Up

My heart leaps up when I behold

A rainbow in the sky:

So was it when my life began;

So is it now I am a man;

So be it when I shall grow old,

Or let me die!

The Child is father of the Man;

And I could wish my days to be

Bound each to each by natural piety.
