Estrogen Get-a-way....

My bags are almost packed...and my passport is in hand. I am off for a couple of weeks with my girls in tow (daughter and daughter-in-law) for an "Estrogen Getaway"! I'm just not sure with the onset of menopause if I have much estrogen left...but I'm going to try like heck to regain some of that while I'm away...I think R & R is suppose to help with that!! I am so pumped...we've been planning this ever since we found out our guys...hubbin, son and son-in-law were going on a "Testosterone Getaway" in October. We just can't let them get one up on us!! So the girls and I are heading to balmy, beautiful Costa Rica to soak up some fun, sun, culture and to take a tour on the zip lines in the Rain Forest! We're very excited. I hope I don't have so much fun I forget to take pictures...but rest assured...my girls are the best at recording life and fun through their camera lenses...so I should have at least a few good pictures. We hate that the boys can't come with us...but they wanted to do this wild wilderness hunt up in the Montana and Idaho "Bitteroot Mountains"...I think that's what it is called...anyhoo...they get to do the rough and crazy stuff...while we chose this year to do the fun and sun....relax and be pampered thang. Next year...will be a different story all together. We may actually be together all at one time...how remarkable will that be...to get all 6 of us on the same schedule, with time off...to hang out...I will love every minute of it! Till then though...it'll be fun with the girls...they always manage to make me laugh, try new and interesting adventures, and learn to love them more with each moment!

I will miss you all...I will think of you while I'm sitting on the beach or swinging from a tree...or as I am floating down the rapids. I will most likely try to figure out what new adventure will make the best post...you know how that is!! Till then...please keep us in your prayers...I'll keep you in mine...and I'll report back with a tan...in a while.

In the meantime...I have housework to do...and lists to make...between hubbin, the dogs and the house-sitter...I will have so many lists...I'll need the vacation!!

No,you won't. You won't think about us one single time...but that is as it should be! I hope you have a blast! I hear Costa Rica is a beautiful country. My good friend Shirley's daughter went to Costa Rica for a year to teach school. She met a Costa Rican boy and he came back to the states with her. Applied for and got citizenship. Shirley called Tina and I one day about 8:30 am, and said we are all coming to Dothan tomorrow for Jolie and Paulo to get married. Can you believe Tina and I decorated the chapel, got a cake, got music together, and singers, and planned a reception, and were ready and waiting when they arrived at 10:00 the next morning! They now have a daughter...who is so smart.

Well, you 3 will have a ball. Get lots of pics...be sure to get all 3 of you in the pics, too. Be safe, and don't get sunburned. Be careful on the zip line...I hear it is fun!

Godspeed!
