A Breakdown…

…of languid proportions.

Since getting to the island, having an internet connection has truly been a luxury. Sure, I’ve got my iPhone…but let’s face it, even with all of it’s magic, it’s still limited. The hotel we stayed in for our first four weeks had hit or miss internet on a good day. Throw a tropical storm into the mix and things weren’t looking good (not to mention the fact that I could only get a connection if I went to the lobby…in another building). As a result, no matter how much I truly wanted to keep on bloggin’ on, it was seriously too much of a headache. Instead, I extended my vacation!

I’ve spent the last few weeks exploring the island, adjusting to island life, and snorkeling with my boys! Lots of snorkeling! I’d share all of my brilliant underwater photos…but I haven’t got any. I’d have to have an underwater casing for my camera first. I’ll get one, though…eventually. Anyway, we tried pretty much every restuarant on the island and I found a nice little bakery that makes some pretty delicious treats (which really only made me homesick for the joy of making treats of my own).
I rested, relaxed, and basically lost my mind. Seriously, I realized that I am just not one of those people that can do nothing for an extended period of time. It’s just too boring, too mind-numbing, too “if-I-have-to-look-at-these-hotel-room-walls-anymore-my-head-will-explode!” I lazily went bonkers as I languished on the beach and lazed about my room, waiting for our household goods so we could finally move into the house we had waiting at the top of a hill.

Well, I’m happy to announce that…

…we are home!!

Our stuff was delivered on Friday and we have been working all weekend to get unpacked and settled in. Yesterday, our internet was finally installed! I was so happy, I danced a little jig as everything whirred to life! I’m not kidding. As the signal grew, my sanity returned, I just had to remind myself not to look at the kitchen. It looks like a supermarket and a home goods store played chicken…and neither swerved. It’s terrifying.

Fortunately, I have the entire world wide web to distract me from the fact that no matter how many times I say “I’m home” that kitchen ain’t gettin’ any cleaner. And don’t even get me started on the rest of the house! No, really. Don’t. But what do you want me to do?? Go in there and find myself on the wrong side of the sanity fence again? I didn’t think so…you don’t mind if I avoid reality for a few more days, do you? At least until I have some semblance of a bedroom to sleep in, right?

Good. I knew you’d see it my way! And, hey, stay tuned…I’ll be back to business really soon. You all have no idea how much I appreciate your patience.
