The view from our room
I surprised Jared with a night at the Hyatt Regency downtown. It was sort of a combined birthday and Christmas gift. Thanks to our incredible friends, we left the house at 3pm and didn't come home until lunchtime the next day. When we first got to the hotel, we crashed in the room not able to move for a few hours. Then we wandered Barnes & Noble to pick out a couple of books, went to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and settled in for the evening. I fell asleep before 10pm and didn't wake up until after 8. Yes, I have been tired. When we woke up instead of rushing to care for kids, we read in bed for a couple hours, worked out and then grabbed lunch before heading home. It was a perfect recharge. I think we need to do that more often.
