Groundhog Day - A Few Days Early

I feel guilty not posting every day but every day this week has been a repeat of the one before. Lounge around in the morning, go to the beach, read more of Stephenie Meyer's creations, eat dinner... nothing exciting enough to post about.

Today is my mom & sister's last full day here, and we're going to Ixtapa to see the "resort" side of town, then back to La Ropa beach. We will switch it up a little because my friend (and I hope her dogs) will be joining us at the beach. Tonight we'll do our last nice dinner and Ibis and my favorite restaurant, Il Mare. It's Italian but has the best view of the bay.

We've had a wonderful visit. My sister is now in on all Ibis and my jokes and is even saying them herself (bwah-hah-hah! we got another one!). I don't think we've ever spent this much uninterrupted time together - at least not since we were kids - and we're still not sick of each other. At least I'm not. I'll be sad to see them go but I'm so happy we were able to have this week. It'll make the next couple months much more bearable.

I feel so out of touch with the internet this week. I know Blagojevich was impeached, Stephenie Meyers still hasn't touched the fifth book in the Twilight series, Midnight Sun, and lots of bad things are happening as a result of the economy - but what about you? What have I missed this week?

Sounds like your family has had the perfect visit! And even saw whales! I hope today and tonight are just as perfect and my fingers are eternally crossed that soon you and Ibis will be back with them in the States.

It is snowing again.........

God I am so happy.

I found some backhill trails in GR last weekend and tomorrow I am going back. Gotta get the powder.

I hit a jump or two for you.

Sounds like a great week to me.

Not much new here. Just a lot of revising. Oh, a friend of mine was pretty much publically humiliated on Gawker, so I've been thinking about how grateful I am to be a nobody.

I'm so glad you're having a nice time with your family!

I'm eating too much, letting my son sleep over his pot smoking friend's house, and getting sick of getting my thousandth cold this winter.

Melanie Avila said...

Nadine, it HAS been the perfect visit! I didn't want them to leave.

Melanie Avila said...

Spy, my dad is here through the first week of March, and my brother arrives for the last ten days of his visit.

Melanie Avila said...

Penguin, that sounds like your perfect day!

Melanie Avila said...

Wendy, that's awful! I hope everything is ok with your friend.

Melanie Avila said...

Robin, I feel like I need to catch up on your blog... :)
