Yeah, it's 4am and I'm posting, but I've been kept awake this night and I just need something to get my mind out of the bathroom. Yonder computer will entertain me with more BMW tidbits and I will surf to some electric vehicle sites starting with this one and dream about an electric car that actually performs like a car. It would be awesome to carve corners at Summit Point making no noises but tires squealing...
On to the subject...
Now that all this hubbub has died down to a dull roar there is some time to relax. I will have some regular blood checks to do between the end of whacking the tumor but before the surgery to remove it. Otherwise, I'll be home just getting my strength back until then. Since surgery will most definitely lay me up even longer, we've toyed with taking a vacation. Jody and I are fortunate enough to be able to afford to take a week off and get away and we are thankful for it.
Surgery will be the week after Thanksgiving and we anticipate having family and friends the week of Thanksgiving so we're looking to get away before then.
Two destinations keep popping up largely because they were two of the most relaxing places we'd ever been; Isla Mujeres in Mexico, and taking another cruise.
In reverse, a cruise would be great again because this time we'd go just for the ship. No attempts to adventure anywhere off the ship, just us and the lounge chairs and no effort to eat or drink. One possibility is cruising with a line not so popular with kids. One minor irritation was the level of noise on the cruise we took back in April so fewer kids would be nice. That's also a minus because we did just take a cruise for our anniversary back in April. But a big plus would be the comfort level on a ship which just about guarantees a relaxing trip.
Isla Mujeres was the island Jody and I visited on our last vacation as boyfriend and girlfriend; we came home engaged to be married. :D A return trip could be relatively stress free but not as effortlessly as a cruise. Jody would be put upon to do all of the speaking (No hablo mucho Español) and the trek to the island would definitely require all of my energy if we were to go today. I'd be wiped out by the time we got there unless I get a lot more strength back soon. We'll go back there in the future nonetheless so trying to go just for this time before surgery isn't a dealbreaker. It would be great though just sitting under a palapa all day. Just imagining it now is soothing away a little of the last few months. :sigh:
Feel free to post alternatives. I want to be warm and relaxed and preferably close to a pool or ocean without a care in the world but hopefully able to order a girly-drink without Jody's assistance as an interpreter.
