Last minute weekend!

Had to plan a last minute weekend to get out of town. I'm so burnt out on work right now. Every little irritation seems ten fold. Noah has also had a hard go of it at his job. Economy is slow so his bosses are up his ass about every little thing. So we decided to drive an hour and a half to the sleepy little seaside town of Carlsbad just a little north of San Diego where Noah spent a lot of time as a kid.

We get to our hotel room and try to decompress as the sun starts to set outside our room.

I've never liked when people took pictures of the inside of their hotel room but we had this amazing light coming in off the patio.

Our view from our patio. So serene and calming. The funny thing about this hotel is that they had all these "activities" for people to participate in like "Bingo at 7pm in the library". I felt like Patrick Swayze was going to be offering mambo lessons on the veranda at 4pm.

Hung out with Noah's friend Chris who still lives there. Both avid surfers. Noah got to surf while here. It makes him so happy!

Of course, Noah continued to work.

But we had so much fun and a much deserved break from La La Land. Back to work tomorrow of course...

You two needed the break. Glad to see such a beautiful room with a view and light. I hate to hear that the economy is causing pressure at work. Its hard to find joy in living when times are tough. The beauty of nature refreshes me. My love to you both. Love MoM
