Kingston bound

I've found that not having a car has it's advantages. For one, I've never had so much money in my bank account for so long. But every now and then I come across something to treat myself with. And because it's not that often, I take more time to choose what I want. And it seems more special. 

A little while back while at the mall I was tempted into trying a new perfume. And I loved it. Then I remembered tearing out pages of magazines for the sampler when it first came out. So I bought myself a bottle of Dolce & Gabbana's The One.

But then I didn't want to wear it till we went somewhere special. So now I have somewhere to wear it.

I'm going home!

So this will be the one perfume I pack to carry home with me. I think. I'm so excited about going home and I think my faux-Jamaican husband is even more excited. Chicken patty, Island Grill, Juici Beef, and that's just his short list. Like if there was only enough money for one ticket, I'd like to think he'd give it to me. But I wonder if he wouldn't just remind me I went in January and call dibs. Fortunately we don't have to worry about that. Instead we'll focus on seeing family and friends and Kingston Kitchen at Hope Gardens this weekend!

Reality bites

So my laptop crashed on me. It's slowly coming back to life, but now I have to back up everything that wasn't lost. And what was lost was my latest assignment. Murphy's law, right. So now I'm sleep deprived, frustrated and late with my homework. Under different circumstances, I might have ran out to get myself something nice to cheer myself up and get going this morning. Even a cup of coffee.

Dreaming of the coffee from Rituals in Kingston.

The perils of one car and two schedules. So instead I'm cheering myself up by looking at pictures while my laptop does it's thing and I try to remember what I wrote.Looking at pictures of places we went while my sister was visiting reminds me of how beautiful Nassau can be. So I need to get stuff done so we can go out more.

At any rate even with visions of the work I don't know how to get through dancing through my head at night, this coming week will be better. Because I have a few days off. Heaven. Maybe I'll dream of that instead tonight.
