We're having lots 'o fun here in Cancun (maybe even as much fun as my folks and the girls). We just got back from a nighttime swim and TubaDad is already asleep. I'm feeling kind of peppy, myself, hence the quick blog post. The internet here is el stinko, so I'm not sure if I'll get all of the pictures in or not. Spent MANY hours here today (pic taken with TubaDad's blackberry because I forgot the camera card in the room). I think I can still see my backside imprint there when we walk by. I'm not really that white, it's just his blackberry washing everything out. Seriously!: My BFF Trisha is here and I couldn't be happier. Her hubs (Rick) works at the same company as TubaDad. Rick, Trisha, my old boyfriend, and I came to Cancun in 1996, can you believe it? My old boyfriend (who shall remain nameless) had kinda longish hair. And one day he snuck away from all of us and got his hair braided and beaded. It was horrible. Everyone called him Bo Derek for the rest of the vacation and our relationship ended shortly thereafter. Some folks say those braids were the straw that broke the camel's back. Heh. I think we've spent the entire time in bathing suits so far. I didn't participate in this volleyball game, it was way to rowdy for me (those boys are crazy), but TubaDad sure had fun. Oh yeah, we did get dressed once to go eat dinner. We have this neat grippy tripod, so we sort of hung it from a banana tree and snapped a quick pic. It's so humid that when we break out the camera it immediately fogs up and we can't take pictures. I guess that's why we don't have very many. Well that reason and the fact that it's hard to remember the camera when you're drinking mojitos and drifting around in the water. The pools are closed at nighttime, but it was so warm that we couldn't resist sneaking down for a late-night swim. Shhhhhh, don't tell anyone. We visited my favorite hammocks during the illicit swim. It's a good thing we don't have these at our pool at home or I would never, ever, be able to get out of them. Geez, I just noticed that I'm in a lot of these pictures. That never happens. I guess that's just another thing that changes when the girls aren't around. (They're doing great, by the way, and so are my folks.) When I saw all those pics, I was tempted to delete them all and only leave up scenery shots or ones of TubaDad. I hate most pictures of myself, getting all hypercritical and picking them apart. Ugh. Allright, I'm backing away from the keyboard and leaving the post as is... Adios!
