and we're off...

wow... what a day...too much to do, too little time... especially when you tend to procrastinate like yours truly here... after running a whole lot of errands, taking care of things at the shop for next week... I was nowhere near being packed by the evening..... of course I also had a foot massage planned with sis Niky (Gag's sister) without realizing that it's the night before we leave, and that I would probably be packing...but who says no to a food massage no matter how busy you are right.....not me. Ahhh pure heaven, 45 minutes of Thai foot massage, followed by 45 minutes of body massage. If you guys haven't had a Thai massage yet.. oh you are missing out... It is like a yoga session and a deep tissue massage all wrapped into one... like I said pure heaven..

Needless to say I came home relaxed and calm... not the state I needed to be in, considering it was close to 10pm and I still had a couple of loads of laundry to do and still had not a thing in the suitcases. I had hoped that the boys would've made some progress with their own packing.... but ya... sure... come on, teen boys??? Arman said just pack me my swim trunks and that's all I need, oh and of course his i-pod.

So... it's almost 2 am.. done with packing and decided to put down some words for you guys. We're finally running away from home... for a nice relaxing holiday, to get some rest, bond, enjoy each other fully, have some fun and see some new places. We have to leave home in a couple of why sleep when there is facebook to keep you company right :) The boys are really looking forward to going... they love anywhere there is water, so they'll get to swim around while mom hangs on the sand with a nice book in one hand and a margarita in the other... hoping to have a view of the big blue right in front of me....ahhh sounds devine.

I'm a bit excited, a bit nervous...and a bit sad... it is our first trip without Gag, and not a lot of time has passed so, I know there will be moments of sadness...but we'll just deal with it. As a friend said to me today.... this is the first step in creating memories in this new life we have....just the three of us.

I've scheduled a few posts for you all, apparently some of you miss me when I don't write, well.....we can't have that now can we?
And as much as we had decided not to take any hand held games or the laptop... that debate is still on as we speak... can these addicted mother and children go away without the laptop??? Stay tuned.....

I'll miss the cyber world... it has been a good friend for some time... can we survive without it for a whole week???? yikes that is a scary thought :)


  1. Oh Mari I'm thrilled that you and the boys are taking a vacation! Selfish me hopes you'll take your laptop and report on the happenings while you're away, but in reality I hope you leave it at home. It's healthy to "unplug" and again.

    I give a Thai massage now and's not for the weak I can tell you that. What a workout for the therapist! I'm curious why you chose that type of massage over something else like swedish.

    Can't wait to hear how the trip went...hope you took your camera!

  2. hope you guys have an awesome, safe vacation! bon voyage!

  3. Like the Fragrant Muse I hope you took your camera. But I truly hope you have a wonderful time with your boys.

    Safe travels

  4. Wishing you and the boys a memorable trip.

    And where do you go for your Thai massage? I've been wanting to try that.

  5. Oh yea! You three will have the best time together. Can't wait to hear all about it. The margarita, the book, the beach, the boys...sounds wonderful! Enjoy!

  6. Have a wonderful time. You will be missed. But I have a feeling you will also be found.
