So I really did have a luxury experience -- probably the most chi-chi thing we've ever done. I've been blogging sparsely lately because of my injury/recovery and return to full time work, and then because we were on vacation. I hate to post that I am not at home because it's not the best move from a security perspective -- so I'll admit it now, we were out of town all last week taking a fabulous cruise vacation in the Caribbean. The trip was the result of a sales incentive that TBG mostly met. We had to pay a small portion of the trip and cover tips and local activities. Our portion of a 7 day cruise, along with airfare, ground transportation, meals and a classic beverage package was around $900. We upgraded our booze package to a premium offering at $12 each per day. We tipped close to $400 and then spent under $100 on shore transportation plus a few tacky souvenirs.

If there are any MP fans out there, I want to share two ideas. First, if you want to up the yum factor, nuke your MP for about 3 - 5 seconds. What to do it one better? Nuke for 5 - 7 seconds and top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. For extra credit, add rainbow sprinkles!!!
If anyone out there tries this, I want to know what you think. I'm off to make a MP Sundae now...

After the installation of a new window and the acquisition of a new bed, something had to be done to at least do a little decorating. I'm not ready to spend any money in this room. The new bed was a sleep/orthopedic purchase, the head and foot board a small splurge. My challenge was to reach a drape solution but not spend any money.

It is a new year and with it, I have made new resolutions. My work life balance was so out of whack in the last few months of 2016, that it negatively impacted my health, which is why I had neglected the blog. My resolve is to be focused and mindful, disengage from work when I leave for the day, and re-introduce activities that are healthy for my mind and body.
