We ate sushi and pizza, then the boys (four of them, woo-hoo) and I explored the pool while the rest of the adults were--well, who the hell knows or cares?
At the pool we were joined by three more girls, so we had quite a rocking pool party.
We compensated for the lack of a Jacuzzi by heating towels in the shower.
The next day the boys and I dropped $20 at a crappy arcade, then we stopped for ice cream on the way home. Oh, and we bypassed the barriers and snuck into the parking lot at the closed-for-the-season Splish Splash waterpark, just to say we did. I'm too old to want to attract the police, so that was as mischievous as we got.
I needed a little fun and distraction from the harsh realities of life.
