There’s this thing that happens every February … I begin to lose my Oomph and slowly fizzle out until I become a sluggish heap that grunts and groans and becomes more sloth like with every passing day.
Here’s a link to a previous sloth post : February 2013
Last year we tried to stave off the winter blues with a cheap cruise to the Caribbean, and well..that’s a whole other post. It was actually the juice cleanse following the cruise that helped the most.
This year as my steam was slowly fading, Eden had a most delightful proposition…she wanted to take the family to a hotel for the night with the birthday and Christmas money she had saved. Well, just about broke my heart with the sweetness!
(Yes, that’s my hair on her head)
Once I cleared the tears from my eyes, we had a good search of hotel rooms, and she decided she didn’t want to have to travel too far, so we ended up with a room at the Best Western Lamplighter in London.
The Hubs and I couldn’t handle keeping money from that sweet face so, instead, we let her pay us for the hotel, then we put it into her bank account
The hotel has a beautiful glass roof that can open in the summer, and provides loads of sunlight in the winter…just what this sloth mama needed.
There are palm trees, succulents, koi ponds and water falls and if it wasn’t for seeing the snow through the glass roof, we’d never have known we weren’t in Florida.
That night away gave me enough fuel to get through the next couple weeks, (even though the ultimate winter storm is raging outside the windows right now..ugh) then my mama offered a couple nights away for The hubs and I…oh sweet relief, I can’t wait!
There’s another thing thats keeping me going this winter…my prayer spot. Will have to post more on that soon
