We've been able to Skype with our kids every 2 days since we got here (Skype is video and voice communication over the internet). I think it's really helped them not miss us to be able to see and hear us still. They're staying with their grandparents who proudly allow them to be slackers...a.k.a. TV and candy. I think it's great, that was always the best part of HAVING grandparents when I was a kid.
So, today I reached my limit...up until today I'd enjoyed the break from my kids, but now I'm relishing the thought of interacting with them again. Ten days is my point, as a mom, when I start missing their daily cuteness. Don't get me wrong, I love my kids, but I also understand how good it can be (for me & them) for us to have time apart.
One odd thing about this trip was the rash. The water here smells really minerally and something in it reacted with my skin. The bed would make me itch at night, luckily I'd brought my own blanket and that kept the rash at bay. BUT, daily shower was killer and it took me a couple of days to figure this one out. Cortisone cream and I have become really good friends.
Here's a couple more yummy meal pictures.
