And yes, you should stop posting now!
I've had some sleep so crazy has been put to bed!

Rasta can be beautiful Alison. Your use of the word HUGE means it isn't. Rasta must be groomed. Jean's SIL has it down her back and it's gorgeous. So much so that you can't tell if it's rasta or simple twists. It takes a couple of hours of grooming.

China bump was just a way of keeping hair neat and then it snuck outside. I suppose simple braids were the same once upon a time.

A la older black women would think it's totally inappropriate to wear China bump outside the house.

Yes this is definitely a PTR!

OK, I guess I have never seen Rasta hair. The neighbor just has hair down to his butt that has probably never been combed and it looks like a small family of rodents could be living in there. It is NOT what one would call art.

Went out with some friends last night. Who knew that Jameson not only warns the belly but the soul? It's been a while since I've had a little hangover. But considering this is Day 13/16 of solo parenting, I'm entitled to it. Its all about football, pizza, wings, and real Coca Cola today. No cleaning, no nothing.

I am actually starting an update for my report.

You're thinking of gnarly dirty dreadlocks where small mammals may live. Not art but I still think they're kinda cool.

Um, are you kidding me with that Prime Rib?! INSANE!!! That looks delicious! Where do you buy your prime rib at? I remember a while back you had found some great deals on prime rib so you bought a few of them. I don't think i've ever found one under $50

Single Digits to Kidani today!





Now this has nothing to do with my trip to WDW,
but today we booked our activities for our cruise in April!

The first day at sea we have Palo Brunch
On Grand Cayman we are doing a Sea Trek Helmet Dive
Palo for Dinner that night
In Cozumel we are doing a tour of Mayan Ruins, a Tequilera, and scenic tour.
For those who followed our other cruise, there is shopping too.
Pam, you were right, I have to wait until we get on the ship to book our last day at sea Palo Brunch.

Yay for single digits! Doing the dance with you

You have some great excursions planned. I'm looking forward to hearing about your day touring the ruins and the tequilera When DH and I were looking to do that cruise, we wanted to do the ruins. I didn't think there would be enough time to do anything else but the ruins itself. Is this all one tour or is it three separate tours that you're doing?

We are supposed to be returning stuff to Walmart, grocery shopping and all sorts of stuff. Instead we are booking excursions and I'm working on TRs!

We get our Prime Rib every Christmas when the supermarkets down here have big sales on them. This year Ralph's, Stater Bros and Vons all had them for around $4.99/lb. Normally priced at like $12.99-14.99. We get ones that cost about $20-25. I'll cut a few in half so that they are really a giant steak, but instead of searing them on a grill, I cook them in a roasting rack and it's a perfect big dinner for two. If I make the two bone roast (like we're bringing to WDW), we can get 3-4 meals out of it for the $25.

That's why we stock up when the price is right, otherwise we would be paying $50 for them!! That's why it's worth chucking it in my suitcase, between the three meals I'm sure we'll get and a fourth that will probably work out in the end, that's $6 a meal (plus the sides and stuff) for two people!

Single digit dance!!!



Your cruise plans sound great! There are so many shops at Cozumel you could almost spend the whole day looking through all of them. The salespeople were incredibly pushy in some places. There was this one sculpture store where I wanted so many things.

It's one excursion, we meet at 10:15AM, get on a bus, go to the ruins (about 30 min), we get about 45 minutes there, the tequilera is about 15 min away and it's about half an hour there. Then we take a scenic drive to an overlook, probably stop and get out, then they take us to the middle of town to shop for a little less than an hour. Then it's back to the boat by 2:15. We leave port at 3:30 so it should be fun!

Just what we need a place where they encourage you to shop!

Actually nothing turns her off faster from shopping than a pushy cashier. I don't know what they sell in Cozumel, so not sure what we would be buying!

Lots of jewelry shops, the regular touristy knickknacks, art, clothes, authentic Mexican crafts. There's a long strip of stores right in front of where the ship docks. I agree with Fran, I leave as fast as possible when they start being pushy.
