Back in the swing of things....

Alrighty then, so I am FINALLY back to being me--no injuries, no illness, just plain me! We got back from Cuba last Sunday and I'm only now back to myself. We had a GREAT time in Cuba--great weather, great friends, BUT we decided to take a little trip off the resort to an old coffee plantation (among other things, including snorkeling in a freshwater cave--VERY creepy!) Obviously we weren't thinking clearly (probably too much rum) because we decided to eat lunch there. Yup, BIIIIGGG mistake. The four of us got what I like to call "Castro's Revenge" and were sick like dogs for almost a WEEK! Thank goodness it was one day before coming home and not at the beginning of the week cause that would have sucked big time! Anyhoo, spent the last day and a half of the trip mostly in the bathroom, then had a 3:15 am flight home from Varadero, arrived at my mom's around 8am to see the kids. Fast forward about two hours, and the Gooch is on my lap, when suddenly, he sticks his finger in my eye. Now, normally, this would have just hurt a little bit and I would have been fine, HOWEVER, I had just finished saying to my mom that the Gooch's finger nails needed to be trimmed, so the seemingly innocent poke in the eye turned into a SCRATCHED CORNEA! Yup, had a pirate patch and everything! My eye is better now, after 5 days of gooey antibiotics and the patch, then two days of "incognito" sunglasses.

All in all, a great, relaxing vacation, wouldn't ya say? Can't wait till the next one...

OMG! Sounds like a great vacation but already back in the routine, right? What I just read would be a great journaling for your «pirate's picture» of yourself. I'm sure your husband took a picture... Mine would have taken it for sure!
