So remember when I said that I was going to take 10 minutes for myself starting on Friday? Well, I ended up taking taking much more than 10 minutes. Actually, it looks like I might be taking some more time.
On Friday, I flew down to St. Kitts to attend the wedding of one of my close friends from high school. It was fantastic – an impromptu reunion of old friends who I haven’t seen or spent time with in a long time. On Saturday afternoon, we set sail aboard the Spirit of St. Kitts for an amazing afternoon/early evening on the water and an unforgettable wedding ceremony with the sun setting on one side of the boat and the moon rising on the other.
I got to spend some time relaxing and reading my book and magazines. I cannot remember the last time that I sat down and read a magazine from cover to cover. I did miss my boys and often felt like I was missing a few appendages.
On our way down, we flew over Hurricane Sandy and made it there fine. After we flew over the storm, the Caribbean opened up in amazing colors of blue, green and turquoise. But, apparently Hurricane Sandy had other plans in store for me. My flight home on Sunday was diverted to Miami and the next flight out to NYC isn’t until Wednesday. Hmmm, week in Miami?
Last year, Hurricane Irene made it a bit difficult for me to return home after my vacation alone. Instead of flying from Costa Rica to NYC, I flew to Orlando and drove 18+ hours home. It looks like I might be making a similar trip again this year, this time from Miami. My husband has already informed me that I am no longer allowed to travel by myself or during hurricane season.
Do you live between Miami and NYC? Do you want a visitor Monday or Tuesday?? How was your weekend?
