We Have Arrived

We Are Here! We Are Alive! We Have Arrived.

** Sorry Mom (and Leslie)!!! ***

I was unable to secure any internet or phone access until NOW. I still have no phone and will not have any phone or email access for the duration of this trip.

Thank GOD for This Blog, as it will be my only way to communicate with the rest if the outside world.

ALL OF THE PHOTOS: For Our Vacation In The Dominican Republic/Punta Cana Are HERE.

(The photos will be updated daily)

A real blog post, with words and details to follow later tonight? Eventually!!

Right now…I am off to the beach!

    WE ARE TRYING TO UPLOAD SOME OF OUR PHOTOS IN FLICKR RIGHT NOW.

    ITS JUST TAKING A REALLY LONG TIME!!

    LOVE YOU MOM.

  • LOL… I was about to say… Where are the photos?

    Glad you made it there safe. I look forward to the pictures. You’ll have to give me as much info as possible. I’ll be there in two weeks… YaY!

  • Meleah

    Urban:
    Its pretty AWESOME.

    I am not thrilled about my room perse, as there is um…NO WATER pressure… and I don’t think I will ever be able to get the sand out of certain areas of my body…but other than that…LOVING IT.

    The view, the beach, the water, the pool, the food = ALL GOOD.

    I cant believe I have finally taken my baby JCH on a VACATION.

    *When you come here bring your camera and your computer. They BOTH work and work well. And trust me, you will want to take a million photos. Ive already taken at least 300. But, I am only uploading a few for now, since that takes FOREVER!

    xxoo

  • What is the power situation? Did you need a converter? That is what I really need to know. LOL… Thx for the info. I will follow your advice.

  • Ahhhh, the beach. You lucky, lucky lady.

    Enjoy !!!!

  • Granny Donna

    yeah im glad I found this, tell the boys i miss them!! yeah, yeah, tiff too. cant wait for pics

  • Oh Meleah!

    I’m so glad I checked the blog just now!! I’ve been worried about you guys with the swtich up and the new room situation, etc etc. I’m glad you’re safe and that things are beautiful.

    I hope you and Fanny have a marvelous time and that the kids really enjoy themselves. I can’t wait to see photos….I just can’t! Make sure you all very safe (but have fun at the same time LOL) because “worry-wart-Jen” will be worrying about all 5 of you this whole week while you’re away.

    Enjoy every moment!!

    I miss you guys! This will be a VERY VERY LONG week without you gals around.

    PS: I’m laughing that the google ad below your blog today is “punta cana all inclusive 70% off sale ends today…” LOL!

  • Hmmm. i hope my last comment went through….. i think you have your comment review feature on…but i can’t remember….so my comment probably went into your que….

    PS: I switched to WordPress from Blogger. Woohoo WordPress!

  • ok, so i wrote a huge reply and it didn’t go through….. here it is again in short version:

    glad i checked your blog….i hope you’re all okay…was worried about your room situation and the switch up…. glad it’s beautiful there…hope you’re having fun & enjoying yourselves, that i can’t wait to see pics… eat carefully & don’t get sick… enjoy every minute…and that i hope you’re all safe and that “worry wart jen” will be worrying about you all the whole week…that i’ll miss my gal pals while you’re away… tell fanny i said hi….

  • Meleah

    Diva:
    Yes WE are lucky!!

    Granny Donna:
    WE promise *pinky swear* to have photos uploaded by the end of tonight. Tiff thinks she has asbestos poising from the mold in the rooms (and she hasn’t been able to smoke…ha ha ha ha ha…for real). Just wait till she gets home and wants a new mattress cuz she thinks she was attacked by bed bugs!!

    FYI: The beach is the ri-dic!! Photos wont even do this place justice!

    Jen!! Rinaldi/Weaver:
    All your comments went through!! I just had to “approve” them! Since we were at the beach all day I didn’t have a chance until now to get into my blog!

    Anyway…Yeah, about the rooms? That will be a post unto itself. All I can and will say, is thank the heavens above for the beautiful water / beaches / pools..ect. Because the rooms have given all of us RASHES in our “sensitive places” and it hurts!!

    And…WTF? My own MOM doesn’t leave a comment? Whats up with that?

  • woo hooo!!!! glad to hear that you made it GF. looking forward to your pictures. go have fun, forget about us…just for a day.

  • I’m so jealous! And being out of communication for a few days might not be so bad. Have a great time!

  • can’t wait to see the pix… i am so jealous… i miss my tropical home…..

  • BEACH?
    Did you say BEACH?
    Ahhh go go go, go and play and check out all the good looking guys!
    Don’t blog! Blog can wait. Good looking guys can’t 🙂

  • Meleah

    Urban:
    The power situation? To be honest?
    Well, it is kinda, just a little, maybe, sorta…um….fucked up.
    Yes. Fucked Up.
    Warning: YOU DO NEED A CONVERTER. We (dumb asses) only have One Plug that works for BOTH of our rooms, which “coincidentally” shuts OFF whenever the hell it wants to. No Warning, No Schedule, No Routine. Oh, and while that’s shut off….SO IS THE WATER.

    Note To Self (AND YOU) The Electricity AND The Water will SHUT DOWN (for no apparent reason..for 25 minutes a day, a few times a day, totally RANDOM style.)

    Not A “Good TIME” to be in the shower….As Tiffany, will gladly attest to.

    Valerie:
    xxoo
    🙂

    Terri:
    I was literally FOAMING AT THE MOUTH. Freaking out. I hate to be out of the loop! Or be out of contact with family members. I had to get in touch with my mom but, I had no form of communication.

    Thankfully, my trustee blog can keep us all connected!!

    Paisley:
    Dood. At least you live in CA…almost a vacation a day!

    RMH:
    I did SAY beach…and now there are photos OF the beach!
    🙂

  • Have fun Meleah 😀 I haven’t been to the beach in ages!

  • No kidding about California for Paisley!!

    I’m so glad you made it safely and are having fun. RMH is right!! Forget about blogging – we’ll miss you of course – and have FUN in the sun and surf!!!

  • Meleah

    Nick:
    This is one of the best times I have ever had…same for MY Child!

    HollyGL:
    Yeah. I know. I should listen to RMH,
    BUT
    I hate being ‘cut off’ from the world!!

    *I miss ALL OF YOU.*

  • LOL, i’m a wacko…one said it was waiting for moderation…but the 2nd one didn’t…sorry! LOL just erase the last one if you want – crazy crazy jen….

  • Wear sunscreen!!…don’t burn your boobies! 🙂

  • Awesome pics!! I am soooo jealous, as we had a bit of snow here yesterday.

    Yeah.

    Snow!

    :*(

    Oh, and the picture of the boys with their gameboys or whatever cracked me right up. That looks like something mine would do haha! 🙂

  • What a beautiful spot. It looks glorious. Now get off the computer and go and check out those lovely (hopefully hot) men. Have fun!

  • Woo hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Woman, the point of going on vacation IS to be cut off from the world!!! Disconnect and enjoy!!

  • Meleah

    Rinaldi:
    You are funny as hell.
    xxoo

    Olga:
    I will be careful not to burn the boobies!!
    XXOO
    🙂

    ChelleB:
    Um…SNOW? Wha? Where in the world are you?

    Selma:
    Okay Okay Okay

    SomeGirl:
    Damn. You do have a point.

  • CBG

    How many memory cards did you bring for your camera. The 4 GB one ain’t going to do it. You guys look like your on cloud 9 !! Have a BLAST!!!

  • hey! i was waiting for the pix and last night belonged to me and my hubbie. anyway, so glad you finally got the pix uploaded. i love seeing them this morning. i laughed a LOT at the sweat much pix — tolljaso!! so i guess the boys have finally decided they aren’t too cool to enjoy this vacation — about time! have a great time, guys. hugs and kisses, xoxoxoxox

  • YAY!!!! I’m so glad you made it!!! Have a great time!!!

  • Loved all the pics…so great! I’m so glad I got to see some!

  • Meleah

    CBG:
    Oh the 8 GB is in my camera, but since I am uploading daily I clean the memory card every night. I am not even posting HALF of the photos I have taken. We are having a wonderful time.

    MOMMY:
    yeah. finally! Oh I am so glad you and daddy had a “date night”.
    Its SOFA KING HOT here..but, the water is PREFECT.
    The boys have been very pleasant …but they are a little antsy today. Probably because we are all burned.

    Chef Mom:
    Thanks Girl!
    xxoo

    Jen Rinaldi:
    Yeay! Im psyched you were able to catch a glimpse at some of these vacation photos.
    We miss you!

    PSA ANNOUNCEMENT:

    THERE WAS A SEVERE TROPICAL STORM WHICH HAS GREATLY AFFECTED INTERNET ACCESS. ITS A MIRACLE I WAS ABLE TO SECURE A SIGNAL LONG ENOUGH TO LEAVE THIS COMMENT.

    I STILL HAVE MANY MANY PHOTOS TO ADD/UPLOAD.

    BUT, UNFORTUNATELY, THAT MAY HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL WE GET HOME SAFELY.

    🙁

    I HAD NO IDEA HOW MUCH I WOULD MISS ALL MY BLOGGER BUDDIES. I CANT WAIT TO CATCH UP WITH EVERYONE WHEN I RETURN. (JUNE 19TH)

    XXOO

  • you’re a thoughtful blogging buddy…but who cares about us non-vacationing freaks! JUST HAVE FUN (and tell us all about it later)

  • Can’t wait to see them all! Hope you are having a FABULOUS time. Quit worrying about blogging. Jeez! You’re on vacation!

  • Meleah

    SomeGirl:
    Im trying to ignore the internet. Thats why I have only posted new photos every day…and thats mostly for our families so they dont have to worry about us!

    Ill be hitting the internet HARD when I come home!

    Kellypea:
    Why do I feel so guilty having not written a single word in DAYS? I think my next ‘vacation’ will be a writer vacation. Wherein I really just write. For. Days on end…with no interruptions. Ya know?

    xxoo

    🙂

  • I agree with SG. Have at that vacation, and forget about us – although it is great to hear you’re having such a wonderful time. 🙂

  • Ahh, that explains it. 😛 haha

  • Meleah

    HollyGL:
    Well, its going to take a whole lot more than a VACATION to ever FORGET any of you guys….But I did have to FORCE myself to avoid the internet! I just FLICKR-ED at night!

    Tesco:
    See you soon daaaaaaaaaaaaling.

  • Oh man! Looks like a WONDERFUL vacation! Next time you go, take me with you!!!

    XOXOXOXOXO
    RC

  • Can’t wait to see you gals when you get home. 🙂

    Random Chick:
    OKAY!
    Deal.

    Rinaldi:
    We miss you too. We will be coming home TONIGHT.
    See you this weekend!
    xxoo

    Rolando:
    Head over to Flickr.
