One Month Ago Today

One month ago today I was on the airplane on my way to Isla!! My longest stay so far and I am loving it. Where does the time go? I still worry about everything back in Minnesota, but with technology nowadays, I can worry a little less. (As long as Cablemas doesn't shut me off for no apparant reason)

Today, we have to clean the apartment and get it ready for our roommate to arrive. Biggy B and I are moving over to our two night stay in one of the hotels here on Isla. A treat for us before we return to Minnesota on Sunday. What were we thinking when we booked our flights during the Vikings Game??? Maybe the pilot will give us game updates. I'm sure he will have it on his laptop, as we are flying Northwest into Minneapolis!! lol

The up side.....we will be back soon!!

Change of Plans

Well, after much talk, we decided to wait until February for our road trips. We kept hearing that Merida was even colder than Isla! So, we're going to do more research and planning!

We have finally bought our tickets back to Minnesota for this Sunday. I do miss the boys and my Angel, so am looking forward to seeing them. The great thing is that I know I will be back in 2 or 3 weeks!! Maybe I won't cry on the ferry this time...NOT!

We have had such a great time riding our bikes around the island in the morning. I have collected so much sea glass and some great shells. One great Coral Statue that Biggy B carried in his basket from mid island! I love him!!

Friday and Saturday nights are going to be a treat for us! Our room mate is coming in with her boyfriend to use the apartment, so Biggy B is treating me to a two night stay at Hotel Kinich, the new hotel above El Sol Golf Carts. Can't wait!! We did check into staying at Privelege Aluxes, but at $160 USD per person per night....No thanks!!
The weather turned around and has been wonderful. Many beach days. Finally finished reading "The Shack" yesterday, with tears running down my cheeks!! What a moving book!!
Things we've beeen doing: A wonderful visit with Wayne and B, A happy hour at Casa Sirena, A birthday party at Miguels, Coffee on El Patio with J&S, A Fish Fry this afternoon with German.......Ahhhhhhhh!!!
Thanks to all of you for your nice comments on my previous post. I will try not to disappoint you and keep you up to date.

Back to Blogging

I had someone approach me a few weeks ago on Isla and tell me they use to always read my blog. It was nice to know that someone recognized me from my blog. Their memory must be much better than mine because my last post was over a year ago!!

So this morning, I thought I would go to my blog and see if I can still even log in. Wahla!! Here I am.

So what have I been doing this past year? Mostly the same, with the exception of the fact that I am now a full time truck driver for our trucking company. Not the vocation of choice, but with the economic times I did what I had to do. The benefits.....I'm sitting on Isla, since December 22nd, writing this blog!! Our trucking season lasts about 7 months of the year. I'm working up to full time winters on Isla, but this year will have to go back to Minnesota a few weeks on and off to take care of business and family.

Today, Biggy B and I are going to plan a trip to Merida for a few days. Have to get our game plan together to leave tomorrow. The weather hasn't been the best on Isla and is suppose to stay the same...cloudy, windy, probably rain, so a road trip is in the making.

So, fellow bloggers, followers and friends. I am back, for now. I will start posting some Isla and Merida thoughts when we get back from Merida. Until then....great to be back!!
