I've been battling over "this" for a little while........ what is this? "This" is a vacation that S and I will soon be on. The question is why do I feel conflicted as to whether or not I should tell anyone? I think I know why. It is because I actually feel a little guilty that I have the opportunity to take such a vacation. Never in my wildest dreams had I imagined that I would go to Tahiti!

I am looking forward to it and I will enjoy it. Yes, we will be taking pictures. (Thanks foggy for clearing out our memory card)

We will be touring the "society islands" which include, Bora Bora, Moorea, Raiatea, and Taha'a.

I will send out an email with dates and more details so someone knows where we are. I love you all!

Monday Madness presents the following questions: What would I do in the following situations?

1. The store clerk undercharges you for an item you purchase? I would probably ask, "how much was that?" she would tell me and then I would say, "cool, I thought it was more than that." - the barcode has the price and the scanner reads it - why argue unless they charge you more than the signage says.

2. The cashier gives you change for a fifty dollar bill when you only gave her a twenty, and you don't realize it until you're out the door? I'd probably turn around and give her the amount owed, but if I made it all the way home? that could be a different story. Do you really know until it happens?

3. You see your best friend's husband/wife with another woman/man at a neighborhood restaurant? I know what I wouldn't do and that is I would not assume that anything bad was going on.

4. Your 15 year old asks you if you ever tried an alcoholic beverage before you were of legeal drinking age (and you have)? I'd tell her the truth and explain that I realize now that I probably would have been better off (then and now) if I hadn't started drinking at such a young age. I would add that it is my hope that she can learn from my mistakes; thereby not having to live through them herself. That's love!

5. You find a one hundred dollar bill laying on the floor of a department store? With a clear conscience I would eagerly put it in my pocket, have a big smile and say to myself, "it's my lucky day!"
Holistic Health Practitioner! That's me! I finished my final semester last friday. I now have the 1000 required hours for my new title and position. Now..... I must wait for my certificate and apply for my license. I like keeping things legal don't ya know.

I practiced my first massage since breaking my wrist and it went well. The lucky client was Susan and she wasn't complaining. I offered a 30 minute free massage to my neighbor/client also; she is the one who walked Bravo with me while my wrist was bound. I intend to give her another free massage the following week (45 minutes.) After that, I'm sure she will be hooked again and I will also feel that I have properly thanked her for her help.

stay in touch people - I love ya!

The "Foggy" family should be home now and hopefully they managed to get some rest. They sure do know how to pack it all in. I guess I'm a little spoiled; since I live here, I don't have to try to visit one place all in one day. We ended their visit with a great dinner at the fish market (?), a short walk on the beach and a dip in the pool and jacuzzi.

We loved your visit - Who's next? Mom and Dad? We'll be looking forward to it.
