Sunday morning blahs


"Morning".

Those are the only two words I think Lyn and I have uttered to each other this morning in our brief periods of "alertness".

It is a very blah type of day here in the Ohio Valley. After a night filled with rain storms and loud outbursts of thunder, the end result is one dreary Sunday morning.

I sit here at the laptop going through emails, drinking coffee (which may be a little bit on the weak side) and listening to snores coming from the living room couch. I know it isn't the muttlet who is quietly perched on top of the couch - as if she were faithfully protecting her owner - who is sound asleep there.

I have gone through every bit of the morning paper. I tend to skim through it looking for the articles that have exciting headlines or keywords that are noteworthy to me. They have shortened our paper beginning with this issue to save money so it really takes me even less time to read the damn thing.

So after all that I decided to hit the Internet and search for acceptable vacation spots for 2009. Last year we had a grand time in California and it will be hard to match, but I have been given some guidelines to go by in order to find the ideal vacation spot for a week.
  1. It has to be some place warm.
  2. Located on a beach
  3. Not located in California, North or South Carolina and preferably not Florida but there is some wiggle room there if the place proves to be spectacular enough.

I have my work cut out for me methinks. It has been a while since I have taken a vacation that was purely "beach-side". I think I was 12 and it was a family vacation in St. Petersburg, Florida, but that was also mixed with a trip to Disney and I have already been warned that Disney is not an option. (sigh)

I'm doomed.

I am open to suggestions on this rainy Sunday morning. I hear planes flying overhead on their approach to the CVG airport and just that sound alone makes me want to board a plane to anywhere.

The snores have subsided. Time for some more coffee........

South Padre Island....that's the place to go. You'll love it! It's sunny, warm and alllll beach.
Pam and I had a great time there.

Rita said...

Fabulous ideas ladies!!!!

eb said...

South Padre is very nice. That is a good suggestion.

Or Huatulco or Yelapa. Do you get the pub "Lesbian Connection"? There is a lesbian owned b&b in Yelapa. I hear there's no electricity there. If you want the info just let me know.

If you don't get Lesbian Connection it's a wonderful source of info.

oh...those places are in Mexico but you probably figured that out.

and here's the website for LC:

http://www.lconline.org/

it's a non-profit, you don't have to pay to get a subscription.

No electricity in Yelapa huh? I don't know if Lyn wants to rough it THAT much. I might be sent to the doghouse for that little surprise. However I will research it.

lynt said...

I need electric. Great suggestions though!

How about South Beach? I've always enjoyed visiting there. I know you didn't sound so keen on FL but South Beach is a lot of fun.

Rita said...

Only one thing about South Beach......it will likely remind me about our diet plan and make me feel guilty! Nah....maybe not.....

CJ said...

LOL about the South Beach comment.
