!Mexico Estas Muy Bien!

Oh, man. This place is SWEET! We are having a grand time! We did a night dive right away when we got here. It was pretty good. We saw a HUGE loggerhead turtle and a 7 foot green moray. The next day we relaxed with all the spring breakers by the pool after doing a spot of shopping. HEY! You can buy blow in Mexico. At a gift shop! Whoda thought? Not for me, gracias. You cannot, however, buy Xanax or Valium without a prescription in Mexico anymore. So I hear...

The next day we did cavern/cave diving in a unique place called the Cenotes. It is fresh & salt water combined. No wildlife, but very cool. Although we once surfaced into a small cave, and got a picture of a critter the guide called a spider, but had scorpion-like features too. I'll figure out how to add images when I get back & post a few. I also plan to send it to Ugly Overload since those readers seem to know their skittering critters.

That night we went to a really fun place for dinner that a friend had recommended. It's called Perico's (although my husband kept calling it Perritos and the hotel guys were making fun of him for asking for a small dog!) That place was a wonderful recommendation because it is very high energy, authentic Mexican family fun! Music, dancing, flaming desserts, you name it. The margaritas were super-strong & knocked us on our butts! Last night was dancing on the bar at Senor Frogs, then more drinks in the hotel lobby before we said "Uncle".

Today we did 2 regular reef dives. They were OK. The highlight for me was seeing a 10 foot nurse shark. My husband missed it as he had to go up before me since he was low on air. Well, that's the blow by blow. More later. Adios, muchachitas!

Smooth Sailing

Well, I made it through the ride-along A-OK. My boss is over it too. So I called her with the news at 4:30 on Friday afternoon. She didn't sound too surprised. In fact, I talked to several ex-managers that day and NO ONE sounded surprised at all. One manager even said he was "jealous". I told him he should be and then answered everyone's questions regarding my recruiter!

I went and raked in some great deals at Kohls today in preparation for my trip next week. I needed a few core items such as shorts, a skirt and a few easy summer shirts....oh... and a new straw cowboy hat. My last one gave it's life for my trip to Jamaica. By the time that trip was over, it was hemorrhaging straw bits hither and yon.

I've also decided to suck it up and get "waxed" next week so I wouldn't have to mess with it while on vay-cay. Bikini line & legs. I'm thinkin' ouch. The crazy shit I do in the name of vanity...I tell ya.

My husband and I are very much looking forward to having some quality time to reconnect. We let our lives get so hectic that we have a tendency to "forget" about each other. Yay for a romantic vacation! I'll have a full report when I get back. Well, maybe not FULL!

Adios amigos!

Winds of Change!

They are a-blowin' in the Pharmgirl household! I'm just going to give a rundown-style update since I've been MIA so much.

The baby turned two ("I TWO!") He had a great time at his party. He is a total little shit, and cute as a button. He tries harder and harder every day to communicate with the big people. He just moved to his 2 year old room at day care, where they keep the "little potties". We'll see how that goes.

He and dad went out of town last weekend, so my daughter and I had an amazing girl's weekend. We: had dinner out, watched her uncle's band play, had green pancakes for breakfast, went to a carnival, went to a parade, went to her soccer game, went out to dinner (again), visited a friend & her new baby, went home & watched "Cars", had a sleepover in my bed, had breakfast and cartoons in bed, went and saw Bridge to Terabithia, went to see a kid's exhibit, shopped, had lunch, got hot chocolate, and.....that's about it. Whew! What a whirlwind of fun!

So my BIG news is that I get to QUIT MY JOB this Friday and I couldn't be more excited! I finally landed a new gig & shall be starting on April 2nd. It only took me 7 months to get a new job. Jeesh! My boss is coming to town this week, but in order to get my first quarter bonus, I can't actually quit until Friday afternoon. I'll be interested to see if I actually give a crap when she's here. It may be hard to suspend the ride-along jitters, even with my evil secret!

To celebrate, my husband and I are jetting off to Cancun next week. It was very spur of the moment, but we really need to get away. Wahoo! Beach! SCUBA! Sun!

Also, I am working on a new business idea with a friend that I think could really be successful. Things are coming together quite nicely and I am really excited about this venture! If this takes off the way we hope, I will be putting my five year "tell Corporate America to go to hell" plan into action.

Exciting times ahead!
