Today was spent in Freeport, Bahamas, where I enjoyed a little shopping and a stroll along the sandy beach. This evening, I attended my first art auction, which I enjoyed much more than I anticipated, followed by a lobster dinner on the ship.
I am missing my girls, though I am sure that they are having plenty of fun with Grandma and Grandpa. They both came down with colds a few days ago, which made it extra hard to leave them. When I called my mother from Miami International Airport to check on them, I found out that she took them to the doctor, and my two-year-old was diagnosed with an infection in both ears. With the medicine she was given, I am hoping that she is feeling significantly better by now, but it’s difficult not to worry. At least I know that she is in very capable hands with my mother, who nursed me back to health time and time again when I was a child myself.
In the mean time, my husband and I are doing our best to make the most of our first true vacation since she was born. Bon voyage!
