How About A Little Weekend Get Away Babe? Part 1

Catch Up: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 

So, I was sitting in my living room Saturday and I call Abdul. I swear to God this is how the conversation went:

J: “What are you doing?”

Ab: “Why?”

J: “Just asking? I want to go out of town next weekend. I need a little get away.”

Ab: “Where do you want to go?”

J:”How about Costa Rica?”

Ab:”Costa Rica?”



J:”I want to go rafting.”

Ab:”You can’t swim.”

J:”So… You want to go?”

Ab: “Yeah. Sounds fun.”

(by the way he can’t swim either).

I got the tickets from Travelocity (6 hour layover in Mexico City — who cares we are going). I picked some adventures, arranged care for the kiddos and marked the time off in outlook. It’s was on!

Abdul was out of town on business in Chicago until the day before we were to fly out so I had to do his shopping: XXL grey shirts, cargo shorts (they had to be camoflouge) — do you have any idea how hard this is in winter? , shades, hiking boots… etc… etc… etc.. Boy I’m really racking up the good girlfriend points 🙂
I also find out that the car company I had arranged for at the airport was closed when our flight arrived. After a brief panic, I learned there is a national cab company in Costa Rica that would wisk us to our hotel for $20.00.
 We were both up until 4am trying to pack and get everything ready.We look pretty hot working on 2 hours of sleep.
