On March 8th, I travelled to the Dominican Republic for vacation. Everything was great for the first four days. On day five, I got very ill. I spent the night vomiting and having diarrhea. My husband dragged me to the resort doctor the next day where I received intravenous antibiotics and hydration. That didn’t make me any better, so I ended up in the hospital the following day. I was diagnosed with an intestinal amoeba which no one knows how I got. And it wasn’t from drinking the water because I didn’t drink any – not even to brush my teeth!
I spent the rest of my vacation in bed too tired to do much of anything except sleep and stumble to the bathroom. When I finally arrived home on Friday, March 18th, I went to bed for about two days and didn’t move much.
On Monday, I started a new job as curriculum manager for The Mercy Learning Center in Bridgeport so my focus was on making it through my first day. Today, Tuesday, is the first day I feel almost human.
Now that I’m feeling better, you’ll see all your beloved freebies, match ups and deals. I even have a couple of giveaways planned. I am very sorry for any inconvenience, but at least I know y’all love me!
You haven’t seen any posts from me since Sunday because I’m in the Dominican Republic! I left before most people were awake on Tuesday morning and arrived safely at about 2 PM. Yesterday was a bit of a blur, and I fell asleep before I got to tell you where I was.
This morning I’ve already been to the beach and I’m in love with the weather and palm trees! I always feel like I’m frolicking in a post card when I go to tropical islands, and the Dominican is no exception.
I’ll be staying for two weeks. The first part of our journey is in The Hard Rock resort. Hubby is here for work. While he’s busy all day, I get to eat, drink and be merry. The Hard Rock is an all inclusive resort, so eating and drinking are unlimited. Throw in the beach and 9 pools, and being merry isn’t hard, either. I’ll tell you, though. Having gastric bypass at an all inclusive resort kinda stinks. No. It REALLY stinks.
The Hard Rock resort is beautiful! The hotel room is probably the nicest I’ve ever been in. There’s a huge 2-4 person hot tub RIGHT IN THE ROOM. And the toiletries they put in our room smell amazing. (You know I’m snagging a few of these for home.)
I’ll keep you posted of my travels and excursions through the Dominican, and if you have any suggestions, please leave a comment. Also, I have a couple of people who have stepped up to make sure you get your ShopRite and Stop & Shop deals the two weeks I’m away! Please make sure you give Joanne and Cara lots of love!
