My Last Blog Post

Before I Take A Vacation.

Like A “Real” Vacation.

A real vacation that requires a ‘check-list’ chock full of protocol such as: plane tickets, boarding passes, passports, prescriptions, SPF 50000, travel size hair care products and brand new luggage. A vacation that is certainly long over due.

In the 12 years my son has been alive; I’ve never been in a position to afford a long relaxing weekend get away together, let alone a seven-day extravaganza – tropical island style.
Until. Now.

Tiffany and I are taking our children, JCH Dominick & Marco to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.

Are you flipping out? I am!!

By the time you read this I will be in full-blown-panic racing around town shopping, and packing mode, all while freaking out about having to fly on an airplane. Because, I am absolutely terrified to fly. Thankfully my trustee doctor has prescribed some heavy duty xanax to get me through the flight.

I will be bringing my Apple/Mac (because I cant go anywhere without it) and I will be posting pictures as often as possible (calm down mom).

I am ‘SOFA KING’ excited! I can’t even write!! Or make complete sentences.

  • Oh, I am just SOOOO excited for you! Have a wonderful time. (I know you will) You really deserve to unwind and just …hang. I’m not fond of flying either, but you’ll be okay. You’ll be there and on the beach before you know it!

Don’t be trying to get your groove back either. Behave. lol

    Drowsey Monkey:
    I am completely stressed out already. Packing is not one of my strong suits. I never know what to bring so I end up bringing too much.

    I will soak up as much BEACH as I possibly can for YOU my dear.

    Thanks woman. You know there are going to be a disgusting amount of photos!

    Oops! I didn’t mean to scare you like that.

    I am FLIPPING out.

    You can totally live vicariously through me!

    Aw! Without Hockey you need something to do!

    there will be many many photos!!

    I will keep everyone posted! I am sofa king excited

    Dont be jealous!

    Thanks dood.

  • Thank G-d you finally have your own suitcases!!
    Love you!

  • Meleah

    ha ha ha ha
    Its a miracle.
    And speaking of miracles, I BOUGHT JCH’S SUMMER CLOTHES (for once!)

    But you still have to help me pack properly tonight!



  • I am so excited for you!!! And, SO jealous!

    I just went to a wedding on Saturday and they’re honeymooning in the Dominican Republic. If you see a blond haired guy getting dragged around and yelled at by a very short, Italian woman, tell them Momo said hi!

  • Wooooooooooooooo Hoooooooooooooooooo. How totally exciting. Not to worry about the flight. And I get the whole packing too much thing. Gawd forbid you didn’t bring the perfect pair of shoes. New bathing suits, right? Party on, girl. Sooooo happy for you! Details. I need details.

  • Oh Hells Yeah!!!!!!

    Woo hoo!!! Have fan-freakn’-tastic time X a million!! How about you have JCH write a blog post about you freakn’ out on the plane?!?! That would be some fun summer reading for those of left behind 🙂

  • Meleah

    Thanks darling. I am really psyched about this. I will be totally looking out for THAT couple! hahahhahaha

    Well, Its NO ITALY like some people…*ahem*… but I’ll take any vacation I can get my tired hands on!

    I only bought all new stuff for my son because he is gigantic and doesn’t fit into anything from last year. I will be sporting the same old clothes I already have…but since I am going away with a girl and the kids…I dont have to ‘look good’ I just have to be comfortable. I am not even bringing the 25 pieces of equipment I normally need to do my hair. I am taking a vacation FROM doing my hair all together!

    I am going to have to post a movie like you did for Laurie too! Oh there will be a blog post with photos of me On The Plane, with my fingers digging into the arm rests. (But I cant act or show my son that I really am nervous because he has never been on a plane and I dont need HIM freaking out too. Ill just have one of those internal panic attacks!)

  • Lee

    Let’s see…Meleah on a tropical vacation…that means………BIKINI PICTURES!!! 😀

    Have a great vacation. I hope the weather cooperates and you have tons of sunshine. Be sure to slather on the sunscreen. You don’t want sun poisoning, and the sun is intense in the Caribbean.

  • SO COOL!!!!

    Have a blast and don’t forget extra sun block!

  • Enjoy the vacation!

  • Whooo hoo!!! Have a BLAST and don’t drink the water…

  • Meleah

    Well, I dont know if I will post any bikini pictures! But I am sure I will have some obnoxious amount of photos by the time this trip ends.

    I have sunblock SPF 85 (for. real.) Think thats strong enough??


    Random Chick:
    Oh, I will be very careful! I will not drink the water or have anything with ice. Id hate to end up like Charlotte and “Poughkeepsie” in my pants!

  • Ooooh my goodness!!! Vacation Time!!! My favourite time of the year!!! yay!!!! I do hope you have the most amazing time! I totally look forward to seeing lots and lots and lots of photographs and hearing all about it!!!! I wish you all the most fabulous time with lots of happiness and laughter.

    Big hugs ~ Graham xxoo

  • Enjoy every minute! You so totally deserve this!

  • X

    My bf and I went to Punta Cana a year and a half ago. To this day whenever he says, “I wanna go back.” I know he’s talking about Punta Cana. You will think the 12 year wait was worth it!

    have fun!!!!

  • That rules! Can’t wait to see the pictures 🙂

  • Tiffany

    we are all going to have such a great time! makin memories!!!!

  • I’m so happy for you. Let me know how it is out there. I will be there at the end of the month. They keep telling me to keep my laptop and good camera at home. But what will I do without my camera? It goes where I go. You know what I mean?

    Glad you are able to get away with your son. Get those passports stamped. International travel is a good thing. Be safe out there and have a wonderful time.
