to get home we left Tambor at 9:20am from our hotel and caught a 9:50am flight on a cesna (OMFG i so love flying in little planes ... if i had EVER flown in one as a young person, i would, today be a pilot - oh, except for the math and physics bit ...). once we got into San Jose we had to wait a few hrs in the airport and that is where the shopping kicked in - yup DAH is an Airport Shopper!!
surprisingly tho, our flight left about 35 minutes EARLY! .... BUT our once direct flight to Tdot was now to become a flight w a stop over in ... get ready for it ... CANCUN!!! yup, a couple hours on a flight in mexico never ends well ...
we ended up arriving home over 2 hrs late.
good thing i have a sense of humor; did ya see the foot of snow outside this morning?
so far we have zip-lined, fished, snorkelled and "pooped" ... poor DLU came down with a tiny little tummy bug WHILE WE WERE STRANDED ON ISLA TORTUGA!!! good thing they had a potty there (even better that it came to fruition AFTER snorkelling!!) BAD thing -it cost $1 usd to poop!! bye-bye tip for tour company - they could have told us we needed $ for amongst other thing (chairs on beach, umbrellas, etc) the TOILET!!!!!
today mum and DLU are having a quiet day at the resort while she full re-covers - w the help of our friend ammonium - while DAH and BUDDAH and HAPPYHAPPY spend the day on a private boat fishing and swimming and SNORKLING!!!!! (this kid owes me, i tell ya!! LOL!)
so don't forget to SPRING AHEAD tonight ... tomorrow is the day we get our hour back ... or do we give up an hour ...??? i don't know; you can be sure, however, that i WILL be dragging my sorry a** around for the next few days ...LOL!
we got some awesome stuff in the store today!!! Graffic45 "LeCirque" AND "CurtainCall"; Teresa Collins "OnTheEdge"; Echo Park "For The Record"; some AWESOME Prima flowers and decorative boarders! BoBunny's Gabrielle, AdLib, TimePiece, Blast Off and Vicki B is also ready for consumption!!! We also have some great albums and also stocked up on a few necessities!.... Come in and check it all out this weekend!
oh, i LOVE to ski. REALLY REALLY LOVE IT!!! i have had (most likely) my last ski of the season yesterday ... :o(
Sunday i walked the Chilly Half Marathon w Tracey, Pitsa and Julie. sloppy, wet, miserable walk. finish time 3:01.4 .... not a great time but ok considering the slop we had to get thru. the whole time, all i could think about was " ...damn, i hope i am not too sore to ski tomorrow! " lol!!! seriously warped sense of priorities, eh, ?!?!? trained for MONTHS for this race, but damn-it, i better be able to ski on Monday!!! heeheehee!!!
well, Mik and i made it up to Collingwood sunday night and chilled w Lyn ... dinner, drinks and a few laughs!
Monday i was definitely a bit sore but i am sure the skiing helped stretch me out ... it was a great day! REALLLY like Blue mountain... i think next year i need to make more time to ski ... i am continually surprised at how i am learning (or RE learning, in this case) to LOVE new sports!!! i was an ok ish skier in highschool and uni and pre-kids but totally happy to give it up when the kids came along. when i started skiing a few yrs ago i developed a passion and have taken a few lessons and i think i am a better skier as a *29 yr old than i ever was in my early (er) 20's!!
too bad DAH doesn't ski .... good thing i have my peeps!
