Patty Wysong's "A to Z" Meme:
This Week is all about "E"...
(Be sure and visit the other stops on the blog hop below.)
Okay, so I can’t sing like one of the Pointer Sisters. And as far as looks, not even in the same stratosphere. But if I could or did, I’d be on the rooftop shoutin’…
I’M SO EXCITED….AND I JUST CAN’T HIDE IT….I'M ABOUT TO LOSE CONTROL AND I THINK I LIKE IT.
(Check it out on YouTube)
What am I all fired up about?
I’m going on vacation!
Stay with me and don't roll your eyes. It may not seem like a big deal, but I don’t get out much. I've traveled some, visited friends and family, and even been to Mexico four times--on mission trips. (Not exactly luxury accommodations.)
My life (which I adore, by the way) is pretty calm, sedate, and basically dull. There’s not a lot of extra cash in the stash and I’m a bit of a lone wolf when it comes to socializing.
My niece and her husband booked a trip to Cozumel and invited anyone interested to come along. My immediate reaction was, “Nah, can’t do it.”
Didn’t give it much of a second thought until one of my friends said, “What are you thinking? This is perfect.”
And I realized she was right. The fact that there would be a group of people in the area, but we’d all be doing our own thing, made this absolutely ideal for me.
I can't swim so snorkeling is probably out of the question, but I'm up for trying it in a life jacket. Will probably look pretty silly, but who cares?
Visions of me lying by on a beach, Kindle in hand, sipping some non- alcoholic, fruity drink occupies my thoughts often these days.
Actually yes: Delayed billing until next summer. *cha-ching* Only thing I need to do is get a new passport because mine expired a couple of months ago. And stay away from the stores because all their summer/beachy type stuff is on clearance right now. Woo hoo!
I’ve always said that my retirement venue in a few years would be a shack, Wifi, and a nine-hole golf course. This trip could be a trial-run. Who knows? Maybe I’ll put a down payment on a hut, and secure my future.
Then I'll really be happy-dancing on the beach to my favorite Pointer Sister song.
Don't worry: I'll send pix.
