Gettin’ Gone Again

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

Hey Kids,

Sorry we haven’t posted in a while, things have been hectic (as usual). Roger’s birthday (a big one) was at the beginning of the month. I was feeling evil and coerced our friends into making up excuses to be out of town. Then I played it off like I forgot his birthday. At the last minute, I said we should go to the wine tasting room at the Ritz Carlton at Half Moon Bay for a couple drinks. Roger didn’t suspect a thing, even when he saw his toothbrush was missing…

Anyhow, we had a nice time tasting wine. Then, perfectly on cue, Kristen and Carolyn walked in (and all dressed up too). I think it’s fair to say Roger was “stunned”. Too funny. After wine we went to dinner at a great place, where our friends Rick and Dave met us - again Roger didn’t know. Dinner was fantastic; the girls brought some great wine to share. Gifts were presented and we sadly parted company with our friends. The final surprise was a nice fireplace suite at a lodge a few miles down the Coast Highway.

Sorry for the (for me, anyway) short post. We’re off to the tanning salon for a little fake bake before we leave for the cruise on Friday. This time it’s Fort Lauderdale for a couple days then on to the ship for a sail around the Eastern Caribbean with stops in the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands and the Dutch West Indies. We’re traveling with a group of friends from back in Chicago who did the same cruise last year and enjoyed it so much they organized a big group for this year. Work has been hell and we really, and I do mean really, need this vacation.

I’m sure we’ll take lots and lots of great pictures, which Roger will promise to post, but you’ll never get to see.
