Island Daydreaming

This week, What the Hell Wednesday is dedicated to my poor excuse for a doctor. Last month I got sick while on vacation. Fast forward a month and a half and I am still sick. Luckily it died down fro a few weeks so I wasn't miserable the entire time, but it's back again in full force. I spend my Thanksgiving weekend in bed. Thanks, doc! It's magnified by a hundred because I have asthma. Luckily I have a breathing machine at my apartment or otherwise I'd have made about a dozen trips to the hospital.

What the hell? Why is it so hard to give a person who is clearly sick antibiotics? I finally got her to call some in yesterday. I hope it helps.

Thank you Christianna of The Girl With the Blue Bow for hosting this weekly rant. I needed to get that out today!

To help brighten my spirits, I'm reminiscing about my trip to the Dominican Republic. Last year on this day I headed to Punta Cana. This year, today, I'm at work...

Fittingly for Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday, here are some Pinterest images I found, photos I snapped, and images from the resort's site. Beautiful right?

Christina said...

Sooo pretty! Sorry that you're still sick! That's miserable. Hopefully your antibiotics kick in soon.

Jules said...

Oh friend, I hope you start feeling better very soon. That is ridiculous that the doc didn't call in antibiotics a month ago.

On a happier note, the resort you stayed at is so beautiful and I could use an island vacation right about now!

Sorry you're still sick. I had that one too, and it lasted forever...

Thanks for linking up!

Sorry you got sick!

Those pics are lovely though!

Feel better. Man, I was just in Punta Cana in October and it already feels like AGES ago. Boo!

Claire Kiefer said...

Gorgeous pictures, and man do they have me longing to be somewhere tropical! I hope you feel better ASAP--saw your fb post about the potential side effects of antibiotics, YIKES. Crossing my fingers that doesn't happen. Being sick is the worst--especially as long as you've been sick! Feel better. :)

Oh and can Michelle do Thursday night?

Elle Sees said...

I so need a vacation right now. I'm so jealous that you went there. It's absolutely gorgeous!

Marz said...

Hope you're feeling better now sweet girl! One of my happy places is on the coast of somewhere beautiful. I can't believe I've never been to the Dominican Republic! After seeing these amazing photos it makes me wish I could book a trip stat. SO beautiful!!

I ♥ Punta Cana. I really want to live there someday but for now, I try to visit at least once a year. I was there this past June and I swear, when I step off the plane, it always feels like I am returning home.
