We're Here!

After a bright sunny day, we've made it over to Beef Island, Tortola.  We're sitting on the boat waiting for everyone else and tomorrow morning we'll be on the water!

Unfortunate First Day

This was the view that we unfortunately had a good part of our first day in the Virgin Islands.  We'd find a beach chair, make ourselves comfortable and - bam - torrential rain.  In and out of the beach bar we popped all day.  

The good thing is that I finished half a book!  

Tomorrow, half day at the hotel and then we head towards the ferry to meet my friend Cathy who's flying in and then off on the ferry to Tortola in the British Virgin Islands.  We'll be on the Four Two Knot again by tomorrow night.

Now we'll just pray that the weather perks up for us!

Weekends For Sun

This weekend Mr Calvin and I spent two fabulous afternoons at the beach!

Meeting new friends ....

Taking occasional swims....

Playing .... (Or acting like it - Mr Calvin does NOT chase tennis balls!...)


Discovering more new friends.... And how tasty they are.....:)

And - of course - what Cal and I LOVE to do!  Just soak up some sun on the beach!

Yay for weekends where you don't have to do anything!  They don't happen often but they're awesome when they do!

Goodbye Mickey!

I'm goin home!  Well -by the time you read this, Ill be home!  Can't wait to be free of all that sticky heat, screaming kids and tedious sales meeting goers.... Home!  And what's even better is I get to stay in the great state of Illinois for all of next week.  Granted, Springfield, IL is quite the locale - but it keeps me off a plane and in my relative backyard for the week!

By the way - just a little travel etiquette.  This...... rude in any class!  Just because you can recline your seat back into the person's lap in back of you - doesn't mean you should.  Think about people around you - because you may end up being one of them......

And Now My Happy Face

Down in Orlando and I've caught a second wind.  I think I'm over the worst of runny nose and fever so I'm going for the gusto and catching a Bikram yoga class that's around the corner from the convention center.  I've taken a class here before and it's a pretty good studio. I'm hoping to catch 3 classes this week while I'm at the convention center.  Yay!  So many awesome poses that stretch me out and make me sweat and even relax - yes relax- me!   

And now I go to my happy face!....

This Is Me Crying....

After an enjoyable weekend with family, I'm back to the grind.

Up at 3:30 a.m. To get to a 5:30 a.m flight to Orlando.  Ah - Orlando - one would think with Mickey and all the sun it would be a pleasant and enjoyable trip - NOT!  I'm fighting some stupid bug that I'm pretty sure has given me a fever over the past few days coupled with completely congested head and no sleep.  Now I have to spend a week smoozing sales reps at a conference.  Ack!  It's Tuesday a.m and I won't be home until Friday late late.... Help me please.

Ah well - take the good with the bad, so Im smiling all the way to disneyland - but it doesn't mean I'm not crying on the inside because I just want to be at home in my bed...:(
