Another week, Another Monday...

When you move to live in a place like the Caribbean, back in your home country and other places people tend to think that here we live some kind of "resort life".

They imagine for us, it's all about beaches and daiquiris. That we spend our days deciding between going snorkeling, laying down to catch some rays, having a colorful cocktail with one of those little umbrellas or just watching the sunset from our hammock.... But not without forgetting to leave your sandy flip flops by the door so we don't mess up our place!

Well, I guess some people do have the pleasure to live that kind of a life, because they either have the money, the time or both....

But for some of us, even though we live in a wonderful paradisaical setting, we actually get some work done around here. We have schedules, meetings, responsibilities, bills to pay, house chores and everything else that involves living in society.

Sure I have a wonderful view working at a place that is right on the waterfront but it also can make you sad when you have a gorgeous, beautiful setting outside but you are stuck inside, having to run reports, inventory, trying to sell people some stuff... When all you really want to do is to be out there and try to live that life that you guys somewhere else think we live, a "resort life".

So, for me and of you reading this; it's another week, another Monday... And with that being said, I only have 3 days left of work this week and then I'm off to Costa Rica for two weeks!!!!

Have a great week!!!

Now it's true some people just get to look out the window at the water during the day. Then there are certain people who work in radio who go snorkeling at lunchtime. Ahem we won't mention his name now will we? I know you can't wait for your trip to begin.
