Getting Off The Island

I have been vacillating back and forth about taking a trip back to my home state, Michigan. I had almost decided to go when this flu crap reared its' ugly head. So I just put the trip on hold for now. But now, with a seeming reduction in infections and loosening up of the grip it has had on all of us, I decided to go ahead and book a trip.

So I will be heading back to Michigan on May 27 and returning to "paradise" on June 10. The trip will not be without some special events. My mother turns 81 this month and I will also be in my home town for my (gulp) 40th high school reunion. Not sure what I think about the reunion. I still have contact with my old gang so it shouldn't be that shocking.

B will be staying home and maintaining the home front. Would be burglars be advised!

Sounds like it will be fun! I went to my 35th reunion in 2001 & saw so many people I hadn't seen in years; hope to make the 45th. And I'm sure your Mom will appreciate you coming home for awhile, esp. at he birthday!

Wish your home were closer to mine. We could have dinner. Darn! Reunions .. ugh .. hate them and never go to mine. At least our weather is starting to warm up for you. Enjoy the trip back home!

You'll have a great time and come back refreshed and energized and happy to be on the island again. Have fun!

Have a blast! I don't care where you live----it's always nice to get away. I do it at least twice year for an extended period.

Happy Bday to your Mom! How lucky for you that she is still alive. I lost my parents a long long time ago.

I thought you were from Minnesota. I think it's wonderful that you will be there for your mom's Bday.

What part of Michigan?

You will have a great time at the reunion, you are probably everyone's hero for moving away from the rat race to live on Isla Mujeres!

I thought there was no crime on Isla?
