I have decided to be very, very wealthy…or at least marry rich one day.  The resort was unbelievable!  I would, by any other means other than my aunt, would never, ever be able to stay at the Four Seasons, but let me tell you, it’s amazing!  I even worked out while on vacation-because there fitness center was perfect! Then I hit the pool and had breakfast pool side and read, while my mother got a foot massage.  I never wanted to leave.  I gambled a bit, ate a lot, slept very little and called my dad 9000 times to make sure he was okay without my mom.  It was precisely what the doctor ordered.  The trip was a birthday gift to my mom, but honestly it couldn’t have been any more timely for me-I so needed to run away for a little while.  I really do feel rested and ready to be a functional adult again!

Here are the pictures:

In the morning I got up early and went running, then did some strength training.  Afterward I ate breakfast by the pool-ordered an egg white/vegetable fritata with multi grain bread (ate about half).  Didn’t have my camera.
