The good parts of A being in Palm Springs this week:
I get the whole bed to myself. Well, me and the cats.
I get to drive his cute little CRV.
I got to eat all the leftover salmon and risotto from Saturday night.
The bad part:
He is in freaking Palm Springs where it is sunny and 70 degrees and I am here where it is 50 and rainy. I am so bitterly jealous. At least it's not snowing.
I told the girls that they could each pick a meal we would eat when he was gone and no, it can't be pizza each night. E chose hot dogs (sigh) so I had leftover salmon and risotto for lunch and am having hot dogs for dinner. L chose spaghetti and C chose macaroni and cheese, so we will be carb loading the rest of the week. Annoyingly, L and E don't like mararoni and cheese - not the homemade kind, not the chemical filled Kraft kind, and not the organic Annie's kind. I wonder if they are pod people.
Karen and I are planning a May trip to Chicago with our families. How do we find the cheapest hotel rate? Do you use Priceline? Do you call the hotel directly? Please advise.
