Addicted since 1971
- Dec 28, 2001
Child-free here. Sometimes I go with DH (who doesn’t drink), but more often I am there solo for a day before meeting my sister/niece (and we stay in separate rooms). There is no way I can ever justify my CL stays monetarily. But I work hard, to the point where I have to be cautious about burnout. I want that extra space and relaxation. I want to drink a big glass of wine or two while watching fireworks from an uncrowded vantage point. I want to grab breakfast or apps without having to mobile order everything and wait in line for pickup. I know I’m fortunate - I feel so lucky to be able to do this for myself. And I feel lucky to be able to post about it here, guilt-free. . Really looking forward to being there in just over 2 weeks!It was a great value when we traveled with our children but mow there are only two of us and we find that CL is still more relaxing and saves time getting breakfast. If you try to get a quick service breakfast, you are waiting in line and waiting for a place to sit or carry it back to the room. It nice to relax and have a glass of wine. The cost is a little more and what you get will not add up to that amount but the relaxation and time saved is well worth it. Any other couples agree?
