so Bryan Adams was absolutely fucking fantastic last night. One of the best shows I have ever been to. Such positive energy- such a great performance. I am wicked ass tired as a result but man what a show. Saw Sarah Slean in concert with the Nova Scotia  symphony. Not a bad show so quite a full weekend with 2 concerts. Fantastic TIME!

Jamaica Baby

Share
so the trip down to Jamaica was so very long. I worked all day and then Martin and Julianna picked me off and we headed straight to the airport. It was a 5 or so hour flight then a 2 hour bus drive and another 45 minutes to an hour to check in. Finally took me and my exhausted 3 year old to our room- got the so called nicer tower- seventh floor. The room is fine by me- A little damp smelling but once we kept the balcony door(as recommended) closed all the time it faded. Few water stains on the bathroom ceiling but overall clean and comfortable with a good shower- thats all I needed. The first day did not start well with tired irritable parents and whiny child as we tried to acclimitize to being there, but once we got into the pool it was better. Gorgeous pool, nice resort- yeah not the Ritz but I loved it.  Martin and I were still snapping at each other- and started getting kinda mean and even embarrassed me on excursion by talking down to me and I told him straight up that the trip was also a test of how he would be in somewhat stressful situations(travelling together with a 3 year old)because historically he would get mean and unpleasant, well he made an effort after that. and by day 3 of the vacation we were in the mode and relaxed and enjoying ourselves immensely.

The first day we hung out at the hotel, it was very large so we were trying to figure out where things were and such. We swam in the pool and I had a pina coloda and dairquiri or two. We booked our excursions for the week. We choose three, first would be the Blue Mountain bike tour(though  would ultimately have a bus tour with Julianna as papa biked) on day 2 of our trip, day 4 we relaxed at the resort, day 4 we put Julianna in Club Mongoose kids club for a few hours(she loved being with other kids)and took a catamaran out to sea and went snorkeling on a coral reef, then we sailed to Dunns river Falls- and climbed a 600 foot waterfall- which was an AMAZING experience, then back to the Catamaran for an hour sail and rum punch, beer and dancing- GREAT time! Again spent the day with Julianna around the resort on day 5, Day 6 Julianna also went to kids club and we went river tubing in the local mountains- again such a laugh and so much fun. Although I will tell you that driving in the mountains of Jamaica is pretty damn scary! narrow narrow narrow windy twisting roads on mountain sides with no guard rails or anything- sometimes inches from the cliff side- there was a lot of frightened cursing - the Guides would joke that their names were not Jesus ! or Oh mY God! and most definitely not HOLY shit.! I We had plans to go swimming then put julianna in club mongoose for a few hours on our last day at the resort  so we could finally get it on in paradise- we had her with us all the time and I started my period the day we arrived- well the hours of screwing like bunnies did not happen and it all had to do with some umbalanced 6 foot tall black British woman and her very naricissitic sense of entitlement to areas of the resort- it ended with having the police called on us- no seriously- the story is outrageous!

April 10th, 2012

So I am back from Jamaica and what a great vacation- I feel invigorated, renewed, in love, rested. reconnected to my husband and child- as a family. I did not check email, internet or phone the whole time- hell there were no clocks in the rooms so most of the time I did not even know what time it was. I have no guilt for going during school time(I missed 2 days- the third was a "professional development" day where they did not do much and left at 12. Frankly I needed a vacation- my family needed this time,my marriage needed this time so I refuse to feel any guilt. It was a very adventurous holiday with lots of stories. I am going to try and write a little about each experience and attach photos or at least a link to photos- but just got back last night and back at work already. Going to sort out a slide show for the kids, we took a very educational tour across Jamaica and into the Blue mountains- even saw a little school there and I have lots of pictures of Jamaica life to share with my students. There was a very unfortunate incident on our last day with a I swear crazy lady at one of the pools over a chair-(she had the police called on us lol) its a very interesting story but a long one and I am doing this entry while my students do a journal entry about Easter- I will definitely share more when I have more time. Needless to say it was unsettling- I swear it could have been Niaomi Campbell taking a entitlement anger meltdown lol(she was a 6 foot tall muscular black British woman!) Jamaica is a very cool place to visit and the people very entertaining and interesting. We went snorkling on a coral reef, climbed 600 foot waterfall(once in alifetime experience!) visited the people of the mountains went river tubing down a different mountain, played in pools and soaked up the sun- one of the BEST times of my life- I am so glad I went. Stories and pictures to follow.



on a less positive note I am at work and my Teachers Assistant came in with a cane and I asked her what happened- well that loser drunken boyfriend of hers beat the hsit out of her and tried to kill her. It happened the day after I left. and now a week later she still has bruises, scabs and scratch marks, strangle marks on her neck. Using a cane. Her daughter is also in my class and was at home to see the violence. he has now run off to Ontario. Our principal called the police- said he felt he had to do it since he knew what had happened. It was his obligation- I said damn straight ! Her daughter got very upset later and admin told her told her to take some compassionate leave and not to worry about sick time.

Its Xmas concert nite and though this feels like the longest day in history(I left home at 7 am and it is now 6:30 with concert just starting. But there is definitely some energy with all the pretty dresses and handsome little men. Brings back the memory and excitement of concerts I was in.
