SAD TO BE BACK: back to work | back to the grind and commute | it's cold | I'm wearing close-toed shoes | miss sleeping in | miss reading by the pool | miss the sun | vh1 with shows like Audrina, Saddle Ranch and Mob Wives
Yes, coming home was bittersweet. Normally when we go away, when we finally reach our departure date, we always say we are not ready to go home and could use a couple extra days. This time, halfway through our week, we were ready to go home. Mike was miserable and he is never miserable on vacay. We were stressed out because the towel saving chair game is a huge hit at Melia Cayo Santa Maria, if you weren't at the beach bt 9:00 am, there was no way you would get a palapa, let alone a beach chair.
We got to relaxed and it was nice to get away to beautiful, hot weather. I don't want to complain because we are lucky that we get to go away but never again will we stay at a resort below five stars (I don't care if it's free or not). I don't want to come off as off-standish or snobby but you get what you pay for and since it was free, well, you get what I am trying to say. There were so many flaws about this resort and I will be writing about a review for our travel blog but for now, I'll leave you with some photos. So, when you ask us "How was your trip", we will say, "It was free" and we will leave it at that.

I'm glad to be back. It's difficult adjusting after not being online for over a week. Being at work is more difficult but at least it's quiet. I can't wait to go home and catch up on more shows that I missed but I am not looking forward to all the laundry I have to do. I hope you enjoyed the week of product reviews I did last week and also that you had a wonderful Easter weekend. I look forward to reading all the blog posts saved on my google reader. Although I liked the social media break, I feel so out of it!
