Our Trip


We had a great time in the Dominican. Beautiful weather, good food and good company. We basically floated in the ocean and relaxed near or in the pool. There was a bar in the middle of the pool that you could swim up to and sit on stools (in the pool) and order drinks. Pretty neat!

On Tuesday, Eric and I woke up to a mouse in our room. I swear he started out in our bed because I felt some weird movement in one of the pillows. However, I saw him under the bed and that's when the hunt began. I was freaked out! We tried to chase him out but he was too quick and he ran under the couch never to be seen again. Eric called him Shifty. I'm not sure why but it was a funny name so whenever we heard something strange we would say "Shifty's back." Not exactly the best part of our trip.

We had a little bit of rain from the storm Olga but nothing serious. We were still able to enjoy the day.

On Wednesday, we all went into La Romona and shopped at a few markets and had lunch. It was definitely interesting to see how people lived and it was a little scary driving around town. There were motor scooters all over and people going where they wanted. The horn was used quite a bit by our driver. That's how you get people out of your way or you just go when you want. Honk! Honk! I sat in the front seat and I kept trying to use the break that I kept looking for. No luck of course. After driving around, we were taken to another part of the town that was more secluded. It was really pretty. We walked around there, took some pictures and then headed back to the resort.

The rest of the trip was pretty much more floating and relaxing. The guys played soccer a few times and also played water polo. Sue and I did water aerobics one morning but that was the end of our activity.

Over all, it was an awesome time especially doing nothing. We would definitely do it again. Here are some pics from the trip.

Dominican Here We Come!


Well, early tomorrow morning, we leave for the Dominican. We are really excited and looking forward to doing nothing but maybe having a fruity, umbrella drink every now and then. It's gonna be a fun trip. We'll be gone for a week and I will bring back bunches of pictures. Ta Ta for now!

Kitty Bed


I bought Abbey a kitty bed hoping she would use it. At first, she turned her nose up at it like all cats would do. And then, when nobody was looking, she got into it and I think she likes it. She doesn't get in it all the time but she has been it a few times. One night I caught her in it and got a picture of her enjoying her new bed.

Silly Story


Last night, Eric and I went over to the mall here in Noogan Town. As we got off the interstate and turned onto a busy street that surrounds the mall, there was a car dead in the middle of the road. Not an ideal spot to be stuck. We went around the car and turned around to see if they needed any help. Eric pulls up behind them and turns on his hazards. He gets out, walks up to the car and the driver opens the door. Eric asks, "Hey man, do you need a push?" Only the driver was not a man. It was a woman that had similar features of a man (and a mullet). Another car stops and a man and his son get out and all three push the car into a parking lot. Eric was glad to help and to have two other people push the car. It's not easy to push a car in general but to push it up a small hill while the driver has the BRAKES ON makes it a little more difficult. Eric gets into the truck and we drive off and that's when he tells me what he first said to the driver. He felt so bad that he said "hey man" to a woman. I told him not worry about it. I'm sure it happens often up here.
Later that night, he would randomly say "hey man, do you need a push?" and we both just laughed.
