We left the next day for Cancun, Mexico for a week. It was the best week just spending time together and laying out by the pool. Joel got so burned on the first day that he had to sit in the shade for the rest of the trip. We went snorkling out on the coral reef one day..it was amazing! One day we decided to venture away from the resort and we got a a city bus (it was only $1 to ride). We told them to take us to a flea market. The bus driver took us into the main city of Cancun (out of the hotel zone) and we did not see a flea market anywhere. We were lost for about an hour just walking around trying to find another bus to take us back. Joel kept trying to act like he wasn't scared for our lives, but now he says that he really was. I mean we pretty much just screamed "tourist honeymooner"! But we made it back and we never left the resort again. Enjoy the pictures...
I guess being married was a little too much for Joel and he ended up having heart surgery at the end of December. He had started having problems with his heart racing and feeling like he was going to pass out a couple weeks before the wedding. He went to the doctor and they told him to just take it easy and come back after the honeymoon. Well, it didn't get any better so we were off to Birmingham for surgery after Christmas. He recovered really quickly and is now 100%. The surgery fixed the problem.
Now that I have caught up up to 2008 this is what has been going on...Life has been pretty normal with the exception of the dreaded tax season and 10 hour work days for me. Joel has been the best husband a girl could ever ask for during the past 4 stressful months. I would come home to a clean house and dinner most nights. But then the great laundry room renovation occurred...we had the the idea to make our laundry room a little bit bigger since it is the main entryway that we use coming in from our garage. It turned into a HUGE project and I learned a lot about my hubby's construction abilities. My man can do everything from knocking out walls, sheet rocking, electrical work, tiling. You name it he can do it!
Well, I believe that is it. Sorry it is such a long post...I'll try and keep it updated more often!
Have a good weekend!
