My Vacation

Ok, I thought of something else I could Blog about. DH and I went on a cruise in May. It was AWESOME. We went to Costa Maya, Mexico; Grand Cayman Island; and Jamaica. We were "unplugged" for 7 days. That was so nice! I think Grand Cayman Island was my favorite for the beaches.

Yes that is me in the distance, very tropical nes' pa? Not a very good "beach" but this was the original docking station for the pirates and the water is beautiful! When we were at the actual beach we were to much in the water and not taking pictures!!

Jamaica was my favorite for the enviroment.

Mexico was my least favorite but it was still great for...TEQUILA!!!
Yes that is a whole store dedicated to different kinds of Tequila. We might have bought one of everything! (not really)

Ok, so there are some highlights from the ports of call. The ship will have to be a totally different entry...I'll just say, AMAZING!


Long Time No Blog

Rean's Hope Chest

Well, I suppose since this is my own personal blog I shouldn't feel guilty, but I do...kinda.

Life has been hectic around here. DH is working very hard and some long hours (12-14 hours/day). My job is very busy too. It seems there are a lot of people who need legal help! It makes me need MENTAL help!! LOL

It is nice to have summer here after such a weird winter. At least summer is predictable (hot, hot, hot). Unfortunately our plans to work on the outside of our new home have not come into fruition. Our "landscaping" is pitiful. I trimmed our buses out front and that has helped but weeding should be a priority.

I want to learn more about plants and the like, I just haven't taken the time to try anything. We bought some hanging plants for our screened in back porch but I wasn't faithful to water them and they are dead. No, dead isn't the right word...they are dust!

In my previous post on My Morning Focus I talked about getting up earlier in the morning. Well, I did pretty good for about a month and then fell back into old habits. I have started getting up in the morning now when DH gets up (around 6AM or so) and then I go do Yoga.

Holy smokes, I forgot how painful that can be! I have to do a lot of modified poses because of my weight but at least I am doing it. I have done it for 3 days now (Thursday, Friday, and Monday). I had to skip this morning because DH didn't get up until 7:15 because he had a breakfast meeting in town and I stayed in bed with him. My Yoga takes an hour and I wouldn't have time to shower and get ready for work at that point. I still got up when he did though! :)

Well, I guess that's all I have to say for now. We just got DSL service at work so I don't feel bad using the Internet on my breaks. I might post more often now, but who knows, I might not! LOL
