Wishful Thinking

This may be optimistic but I am hoping I will be feeling well enough to travel a few days after my surgery even though my doctor said to expect a week to recover.  I figure if I won't feel up to doing much of anything, how about doing nothing at a fabulous resort.  However, I don't know if going back to work with a tan after being off sick for surgery is such a good idea.  Probably not.

Last year I spent some time at the Four Seasons in Scottsdale, Arizona.  Surprisingly, it was one of the best trips I had.  I swam under the stars, hiked up a mountain at 5 am in a million degree heat, went to the spa almost daily, and slept like it was going out of style.  I think I even read a book or two.  I haven't read one since. I always considered myself to be one who likes active vacations.  Who knew I would actually enjoy doing absolutely nothing.

Aren't the hand painted sinks and bath accessories a nice touch? I think recuperating in style may actually make me feel better.  I can even send myself some "get well soon" flowers!

if getting a nice tan is a part of recovery process, you shouldn't worry about what your boss is going to say...

you do, what you have to do :)

M. - I like your way of thinking! You may have just convinced me to take a short trip.
