I didn’t sleep well. I woke up at 3:30 and was awake for an hour. I hate it when that happens. I wake up for real at 7:30. We go to Bella Vista for breakfast. I have Olivia make me some scrambled eggs. Well, ONE scrambled egg.
She asks when we are leaving. I sadly tell her tomorrow. Leaving is always sad. I tell her I have to go back to work. She asks when are we coming back. I say I will be back in January with Karen, but I am looking for another reason to come back sooner. She asks what kind of work do I do. Lactation consultant.
Blank look. (I know if I was something like a plumber or a teacher, I would never get the blank look).
I say, “I help mothers with breastfeeding.” (Which is better than saying, “I unclog people’s toilet’s – as important as that is – but not as important as, “I teach our future generation”- which is the MOST important job anyone does, EVER.
She gets that. She says, “Well, then you have to come back in September.” Thawhen she will be having her bambino. That’s my reason to come back sooner! I tell her that I hope she will do fine and not need my help. I’m sure she’d had her baby by now and wonder how she and her baby boy are doing.
I go back to my table and enjoy my breakfast and tea (WITH caffeine).
Zung has, well, he has an omelette. Were you thinking he was going to order, scrambled tofu?
We read the Mexican Caribbean edition of USA Today. This is delivered every day to our room. There are also copies outside of Bella Vista.
After breakfast we did what we always do and went to the Lobby Bar. I had a Mimosa and Zung had a Cappuccino.
We are nothing, if not consistent.
I exchange some money at the Lobby so I will have enough for tips until we leave tomorrow. I, apparently, exchanged too much. I have a bunch of 20’s and several 50’s in my wallet. I keep it there so I don’t forget to return to the place where my heart lives.
We eventually make our way to the beach. Where my heart lives.
We schedule a couples massage for 4. We clarify that we CAN use our gift certificate for a beach side massage.
I have a Coco Loco.
At 11ish we go to the pool bar to get cucumber mojitos from Daniel.
Daniel is not there.
Are you freaking kidding me? He’s where? What happened?
