GOODBYE...

There is never enough time is there? I was running some last minute errands. That is me, always in a mad rush. No sooner is the passover week done with, then I am a buzz with things to do, my brain is full of what I should be doing and ideas.... thoughts, theories, lists, stress. I have shingles. Yes... I have shingles. I thought it was just some strange allergic thing... but alas, no. Another thing added to my list.... doctor..... shingles prescription..... bleck. I am a bit better.... But nothing like taking a trip with the girls to make you excited and embarrassed in one foul swoop. Yay me.... I am going to Cazumel, Mexico for a short week. And I get to put a bathing suit on.
The 'Yay me's' come to a screeching halt here. I look like someone tied me to the back of a pickup and dragged me through the gravel. (Adding to the list... a bathing suit that looks more like a bio-hazard suit.... check.) 

With that said I decided... to take my own advice.... SNAP OUT OF IT!!! 

Get EXCITED!!
(... remember the Tylenol... check) 
HAVE FUN!
 (.... go get a new sun-dress.... check)
Be ADVENTUROUS! 
( I might just add here that I talk big...
 I love the idea of travel but never have been a good traveler...
pathetic, I know... oh yeah, don't forget  Dramamine.... check)
RELAX!
(reminder to scold all the friends who talked me into reading the Twilight series... 
against my better judgement, I did. 
Now I am hooked, thanks girls. [snicker] 
Get second book... check)

I am going to have fun. I am always a bit apprehensive before I go anywhere... call it nerves.
Once I arrive, I will chill. I'll slip into a sun-dress and go walk on the beach. 
I will think, I will meditate. 
I will probably drink a little too much tequila and beer (hence the Tylenol). 

I like sitting here with my blogging buddies... 
but for now I better go do some actual 'live life to the fullest' kind of stuff.
I'll have one for you.

*Be back in a week. And I will miss you more than you miss me. I promise.

Have a wonderful break! I just finished book 4 - yup, it's an addiction!! I won't tell you what happens, but it's a page turner to the very end...

Have a wonderful trip ! The salt water should be good for the shingles too, not the mention how wonderful the sea and the tequila and the getaway will be for the rest of you ! I was in Playa Del Carmen a month and a half ago - Heaven !
Read the whole damn bunch ! Got to the end of the second one and said "Bite the Chick already, will ya ?!" but still read on...can't handle the movies though. Should make for some juicy beach side reading...
Enjoy !!!

Good for you girlfriend! Get out there and have some fun, soak up the sun 'cause it will help your body and your soul. Let the stress melt away and come back refreshed and relaxed.

I hope you have a wonderful time! Lucky you!!! :) I have read the entire Twilight Series and loved it. Stephenie Meyer is great at characterization. That will keep you nicely engrossed while you bask in the sunlight (we'll be worried if you start to sparkle...Edward reference). LOL Can't wait to see photos upon your return. :) Theresa
