The Countdown is ON

4 days and I'll by flying to Varadero, Cuba! Jamie has finally started to show some excitement too which is nice...about time, he was so "whatever" about it before. Now that we have our passports and have almost completed our last minute shopping, it seems to be finally sinking in for him that we are leaving to fly for vacation to a tropical island in the Caribbean! Warm weather, sunny skies, sandy beach....here we come!

I mentioned shopping...have had to do a bit of that (oh, poor me! note the sarcasm?). Jamie really needed shorts, I needed a couple of tankinis (the bikinis I had last year just not cutting it yet this year...for some reason they're just not covering the same amount of skin!) I got this one in green and another one from Sears that I can't find online, it's bright pink (aren't you proud of me for getting pink?) with orange trim, pretty cute. We also shopped for little gifts to give while we're visiting. Tips online said to leave the maid little gift bags with soap, shampoo, toothpaste, pantyhose, all kinds of things that we take for granted but are really expensive for them to purchase out of their meager wages. Today I think I'll head out to the mall, check out Old Navy, see if I can find myself a pair of shorts or a skirt. Again, a lot of my summer things don't fit....it's so upsetting!!!

On the bright side...I've lost 3 lbs...he he...not much I know but it's a start, right?

And today I get my hair cut and my eyebrows waxed, get my B12 shot at the doctor, go for a tan, etc. etc. Lots of last minute stuff.

Our flight leaves on Sunday morning EARLY...sucks to get up at 2:30am, drive to the airport, Park n Fly, wait in line to check-in only to wait another 2 hours for take-off...but hey, that means we arrive in Cuba EARLY too. On the way back will be much worse when we arrive in Toronto 2am Monday morning and I have to work at 7am!! Ugh, don't even want to think about that!
