Home again, home again. We had a great time in Cancun. We floated in the gulf, lay in the shade on the beach, visited with family, ate and drank. I want to thank you all for some great advice before we left. You all pointed out that ‘all inclusive’ did not mean you have to eat and drink everything in sight! And you were right! It would probably have been even better if I’d taken that advice, but that’s not necessarily true. Gratefully, I’m still under the weight at which the dreaded cane comes out. And I’m going to be working on losing a little the rest of this week.
My view for most of the week.
I wore my dress, I felt a little silly, but I wore it. I think the bride and groom were the most comfortable. He wore a white shirt, khaki shorts and went bare foot. She had on a lovely long white dress and was also barefoot. Nick was the wedding photographer and he got some great shots.
Monday was back to the real world. I headed off to school. The school had a breakfast buffet that would have been fine, but even though I looked hard, I couldn’t find the champagne to make the Mimosa – what the heck? Last week the champagne bucket was always right by the orange juice. I also explained to my dear partner Megan that it was time for my mid-afternoon strawberry margarita, but even though I said ‘por favor’ she did not trot off to get me one and bring it to me as I basked in a hammock. And she wonders why I want to retire.
Oh well, even thought the service isn’t as good as Mexico I still plan on enjoying the heck out of my last few months teaching. Because of the way we’re teamed I’ll have approximately 140 students this year. I guess that will keep me off the streets for a while.
There will be a brand new Cassie book out by the end of the month – much more about that very soon!
