But it went really, really well. We enjoyed each other's company, spent lots of time in the pool, the girls and I slept in everyday (oh, the cuddles!), they took their naps and got along really well, I put a good dent in my new book, there was very little whining, and hardly any temper tantrums. For 12 whole days. It was glorious! I was actually relieved that I had to stay a few days longer to wait for Alex to get paid so that I could put gas in the car to get home.
