Ameretto sour! Margarittaville

Well it's night two here in Jamaica and I have a new fave drink. Ameretto Sour! Not bad! Only on my third one tonight.
We are headed out to the margaritaville in 20 min or so. Not sure ... Darla wants to go dancing, but you gotta pay for drinks there.
Oh well ... Having fun so far, but completely miss my Mai and my Ang!

My view this morning!

My view this afternoon!

Sing out, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh ohhhhhhh....

Come sing me loud,
Come sing me Montego Bay
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh!

I will be heading out on Friday morning at 6:15am for Montego Bay, Jamaica. My Christmas present from Angela. I only have 2, possibly 3 more working days before I go. Honestly, I haven't been on an airplane for 19 years. Wow. That was a long time ago. I went to London, England on a school (march break) trip. It wasn't with my school. It was with my friend's high school. I was lucky that they let me tag along.
I haven't really been away anywhere other than in Ontario since.
I am excited about it, and looking forward to it, but at the same time, I sort of wish that Maizey and Angela were coming with me. I haven't been away from Maizey for more than one night since she was born. It's going to be hard.

I really don't even know what to expect. We are going all inclusive to a 4 star resort. There are a few bars, a few pools, a pool bar, of course the beach, some restaurants, and a buffet. I picked up a new bathing suit. If you have read my blog before, you know I wear a "body-suit" style bather. Well I have gone "out of my box" and got an old lady style bather. (seriously, my mom bought the same one last year lol).

Little Maizey isn't walking yet, but she is well on her way. She'll figure it out soon. I just hope it's not while I am on the vacation. Ewww, That would completely suck.

Quick Update

So many things to say, so little time to say it. I promised myself I'd be in bed by 10pm tonight. Umm ya- not happening. Well sort of. I am in bed now (11:27) but not sleeping. I've been having some trouble in the sleep department. I can't seem to fall asleep, and when I do I end up waking all night.
This combined with the cough I seem to be suffering from make for very sluggish days.
I've been feeling pretty stressed since being back to work with figuring out the routine and how to fit everything in, and think this could be part of the problem. I find it especially hard that angela's schedule is never predictable and so it's even harder to create a routine at home.
Ugh 5:30 will probably come just as I'm reaching the point of finally managing restful sleep. At least I am afternoon shifts on Wednesday and Thursday, so I know I will manage two nights of not bad sleep this week. I never have a problem when I don't have a set time to wake in the morning.
Isn't that the way it is though?
I can't take sleeping pills because they knock me out for the whole next day (worse than no sleep), and gravol gives me sore gums :(.
I'm going to try harder to blog more, hoping to get my stresses out at least. We'll see though.
I hate when I have so much to say but it never comes out the way I want it too. According to my boss I am a great report writer, why is it when it comes to here, my gracefulness and talent for writing dissapear?

Happy New Year!

It was a Mixed up year! A Mix of good and bad. Definitely looking forward to a better 2012.
We went to our good friends' house to celebrate the New Year last evening. It was really a great time. We had some appetizers, good wine, good friends, good kids, and some nice chats. Mix in Angela playing the wii, Some dance game, and it is a perfect evening.
We came home at 1:30am and went to bed. Maizey fell asleep in the car, and didn't even wake up for her diaper change when we got home. Surprisingly enough to us, she slept all night right until 1:40pm this afternoon. Wow! Perfect New Year's gift to us, as we also slept until she woke up. She really is a great baby when it comes to sleeping. At night she actually prefers a short cuddle and rock in the rocking chair, and then she likes to be put into her crib while still awake, and she hums herself to sleep.
Honestly, I want another child. I don't want to wait, but economically it is best if we wait another year to try for the next one. I feel like Maizey is meant to have at least one sibling. She loves the company of other kids. She actually waves at all the other kids when we are out shopping or just out for a walk.
We had new neighbours move in to the unit right next to ours. They are looking a little sketchy, but I'll have to wait until I have a chance to speak with them, to decide. We are still hoping to move out of this neighbourhood sooner rather than later, but must wait for Angela's dad to make his decisions. It would definitely help us out financially to live in that situation. Not to mention that the dogs would have a bigger yard, and maizey would have a bigger yard. There is actually a house for sale right around the corner from my work, and Maizey's day care that looks like it would suite perfectly, and it has a pool. But again, we aren't really going to look, until some decisions are made.
Maizey still isn't walking, but is getting better at cruising and pulling up on things. She now bum scoots and crawls in the traditional way.
Ok.. I'll have to add more later, because we have to head out to my mom's house. She is cooking a big New Year's dinner for us.
Happy New Year!
