I am back to blogging after a brief absence. I took a trip to Denver and had an amazing time. Unfortunately, I got sick and on the plane my ears plugged up leading to a sinus infection. I had never had a sinus infection but I promise you I'm not being overly dramatic when I say that I was in agony! I've had the flu twice and this was so much worse. I hope to never have to go through it again!
So, back to the regularly scheduled random musings...
According to my cruise countdown I leave on vacation in 63 days. My cruise partner could narrow that down to the hours, minutes and seconds but I am fine with knowing that in just over 2 months I will be on a plane.
I am not a last minute kind of girl and I also tend to make lists, check stuff off and double check the list. Since coming back from Denver my suitcase was still sitting out. I decided to start pulling cruise stuff together knowing I won't be using or wearing any of it before the cruise. So, the result is this sitting in the middle of my bedroom floor. The good news is I still have quite a bit of room left in that suitcase.
I am very fortunate that a friend of mine was gracious enough to loan me a formal dress and a pair of strappy silver heels to wear with the dress. This means that I don't have to buy a dress that I'll probably only wear once for a few hours.
The realization that the cruise is in only 2 months has kicked my motivation into high gear and I have been working out almost every days. Most days I choose one of these DVDs. I love Billy Blanks and Jillian Michaels!
The main reason I wanted to go on this cruise is that it includes a stop in Cozumel, Mexico. When we went on a cruise two years ago our excursion didn't leave any time at all to wander around and really check out the place. For this trip I was determined to not book an excursion but to just wander around checking out markets and eating fantastic local food. Thank goodness for the library!
