Why must I be tortured like this

45 sleeps 'til our 1st trip to JA. We've only been planning this trip for a year +

I mean, really,it's hard enough to not think about JA, every minute of every day as it is.

It isn't made any easier when everywhere I turn, it's Jamaica this & Jamaica that....

Last night, we attended our son's 4th Grade Spring Concert @ school and one of the songs the chorus peformed was a Jamaican folk song.

TWO television ads in less than one hour this AM for Jamaica ..."Once you go you know"

Then, I'm watching a show(also this AM) that showed JFK airport (we'll be flying outta there)

Signs everywhere!

Off to work. I work p/t at a local elem. school (as a cafe. aide). My luck, they'll be serving jerk chicken today ;-)

Have a great day!

Naomi :-)

Wait till you come back - it gets worse! My last trip home in Feb. I almost broke down in the grocery store because mangoes were on sale. I didn't want to buy mangoes at the store I wanted the fruit lady to deliver them fresh to my lounge chair! :-) I am jealous that you only have 45 more days. I go every February.

Yeah, it just gets harder once you are back. Now you see signs everywhere, next you will be looking for signs.

Oh and recently, my husband & I were looking through the yellow pages for a particular restaurant. I opened the page right to a Jamaican restaurant about 15 min. from here. Bizarre!

Next thing you know Bob Marley is ALWAYS on the radio and your hand must turn it up. When shopping you notice things you never did before like jerk sauce and such. A pattie has a whole new meaning.

We saw a hotel last weekend in NJ called Montego Bay Inn, all kinds of stuff like this starts happening..be prepared :)

LOL! I hear ya! We've been waiting for six long months and now down to two weeks. At a local restaurant they are doing a Caribbean menu and featuring jerk chicken, but I'm not having it any of it because I only want the real thing.
