So, I guess I should explain.
I have a doctor friend who told me a story one time. She said she felt like a momma pig with more piglets than teats (referring to all the demands on her time, and always feeling like she had the life sucked out of her.)
I feel this way sometimes. Life is busy, life is full, and I am by no means feeling ‘empty’ but I do feel pulled in more directions that I can keep up with... hence the pig.

We are going to Cancun on Monday. I WILL have a functional camera before we leave.... and you WILL see a pic of me riding bareback in the ocean. The video on my profile - I am going to live that with my hubby next week! I can't wait. It is a very rare occasion that we get a vacation alone. Read that - it is very rare that I get a vacation. LOL We go as a family, but my job never stops, ykwim? Anyway, I can't wait to share with my Fab friends about our trip. I will have to be telling myself a lot that nothing tastes as good as thin feels because this is an all expenses paid vacation - all food and all beverages included... and I am not pregnant, so I can drink all I want. woohoo! No cooking, no cleaning up after kids, a real vacation! Can you tell I am excited?  

Sharing Hope,

Dee Dee

    • Heather,
      I’ll be taking all my ‘skinny’ clothes with me, just so I won’t over do it. I am a fruit person anyway, so I’ll be fine if they have a fruit buffet. We went on a cruise year before last (another all expenses paid deal and the only other ‘us’ only vacation we’ve ever taken) and I acually lost weight while we were on the cruise. I ate like a pig, but it was all from the fruit and salad bar. Yum! This place has 11 resturants on site, so I know there will be lots of variety to choose from. We also get two paid excursions with our trip so we might just be too busy to think about eating. Monday and Friday are travel days, so we’ll only have three days to play. But, who can complain? It didn’t cost us a dime!

    • Ellen,
      Do you have any recommendations, things we just have to do while we're there? Other than horseback riding on the beach, which for me is a given. :)
