Sun’s out, guns out!!!
Return of the CEEJ…
I wrote this one a week in advance before leaving for my trip, so unfortunately, I don’t have any Barbados stories for you yet.
I decided that I needed to spend a week away from my laptop to ensure that I didn’t start working while I was on vacation. (Yes, that is something I might do. And, yes, maybe I do have a problem.)
So the laptop stayed at home… although I did stock up on reading material. I did bring notebooks for brainstomring/journaling sessions. And I did bring my phone which I hopefully remembered to use for gaggles of beach selfies.

Before I left, many people asked who I was bringing with me. Most were surprised to find out that I was flying solo.
You know the look… where someone tilts their head to the side with pity and all they can utter is, “Oh…”
As in, “Oh, you poor thing, maybe you’ll make some friends in Barbados.” LOL.
The truth is, I actually enjoy my alone time.
Growing up, I was definitely shy and introverted.
Eventually, I came out of my shell and became the outspoken trainer who clogs up your Facebook feed each morning.
But I still value my me-time.
It’s funny to think that in prison, the harshest punishment you can recieve is being alone. Aka solitary confinement (locked up by yourself, away from all the other criminals and murderers).
But let’s be real here. I’m not going to be in a tiny box with no light, surviving on scraps of food.
I’m going to be in an island paradise chillin on the beach, making friends with the swim up bartender, eating fresh fish, and getting massages as the mood strikes me.
So yea… not too shabby for ole CJ! No pity needed. 😉
My plane is due to arrive back Sunday evening (tonight) in STL.
My hope is that you had a great week with Derek last week.
I’ll be taking an additional day to readjust to life on the mainland.
I hope to be totally refreshed, renewed, and not at all sunburned upon my return. Lol.
Perhaps I’ll come back with all sorts of newly found wisdom and epiphanies.
Or perhaps I’ll just come back with a T-Shirt that says Barbados.
In any scenario, I’ll be happy and excited to see all my amazing peeps again.
Looking forward to reconnecting.
Enjoy one more day with Derek on Monday… And then the reign of Ceej can resume on Tuesday. 😉
See ya soon!
