Bring on the Margueritas !!!!!!!

Because I will go INSANE if I spend another week in the frozen north....(Yup, we got ANOTHER blizzard here today!), I will be leaving early tomorrow morning for a tropical vacation.

We are visiting family first near Milwaukee, (No, no...that is not the tropics, I know!) (But to where we live, it sometimes feels that way. *grin*) and then flying out EARLY Friday morning to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for a week's vacation.

We will be getting back to Milwaukee on Friday, Jan. 9th (get ready for my depression in following blogs) and hopefully, back home by 1/10/09.

According to the weather watch site I have, Punta Cana has balmy 80's today, with sun. Hmmmm...don't know if this paste-y white girl's body can take it. Where we live, we hibernate (like the bears) from the first snowfall (typically in early November) until spring (which doesn't get to us until the middle/end of April) and so I may go into shock.

So, please please please return to read more of my continuing blog around Jan. 11th or so....I am sure I will have plenty of adventures to share with you upon my return.......

Happy New Year, everyone!!! I am sure I will have a drink for each and every one of you when I am there!! (You know those crazy Americans on vacation!)

Original Pechanga: I don't know, but I am willing to try. *grin* As long as the snow isn't yellow.

I reckon I'd be too frozen to move if I lived with your guys. Even to move to the 'tropics'.
We're sub tropic and that's quite hot enough!
