I wanted to shake up my life and go sailing (or learn on the job, so-to-speak) so headed to Florida to crew on a catamaran. This is about how it went or, rather, didn't - and my life since. Hopefully it will lead to a catamaran on the clear aqua blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, watching the sunset, a coconut rum and coke in hand. You must START AT THE BEGINNING of the blog, April 2009, to get the whole story...

I spent all morning by the pool, icing my face and going for a quick dip every hour or so to cool off. I read a bit but it was awkward to read and hold the ice up in the right places.

Around noon I went back to my room, showered, and sat up on the bed with more ice on my face and tried to watch HGTV (my favorite channel) but fell asleep - amazingly holding the ice to my face all the while; I had my arm propped up on a pillow.

I see a little improvement in the swelling from this morning. Hair and makeup helps!

I look just like Droopy Dog - fat cheeks and about 3" between my nose and mouth.

Some names have been changed to protect my butt.

Here's my Amazon Store called Sandra's Selections, full of my favourite things and constantly updating it as I discover more fav's. It's more for fun than anything as I've never made a cent off of it.
