Its day 10 on the island, and I'm slowly going insane. 

Not really... but I am bored out of my mind. Andrew started work on Monday, and we still haven't moved into a house yet. So I'm stuck in this hot apartment until what feels like eternity. 

I forced myself out of the house today and went to the Cafe Poetico again. I ordered a huge mug of coffee, and sat down and read a book for awhile. I then ventured out to the Marshall's (a retail store) across the street and shopped for bathing suits and sun dresses. I ended up only buying two tank tops and sour Jelly Beans (which I was so excited about!) 

The mug was really as big as my face
Unfortunately for right now, that's all there really is for me to do around here. I cant job hunt, because we aren't in the area that we plan on living, and I also don't have my car yet. I cant unpack because, well, there is nothing and nowhere to unpack. I cant write thank you notes for the wedding, because all my cards are packed up in storage. So for right now, all there is for me to do is shop, get coffee, read books, and watch TV. Back home, that would be bliss, and I would be perfectly fine with that. But here, I just feel so un-settled. I feel stuck, and helpless, and like there is just an abyss of boring in my future. And its making me crazy. I know this is just a hard time that I have to wait out. But its hard. Anyone that knows me, knows that I am the most impatient person on planet earth. 10 days feels like a lifetime to me. But I know this will pass, and everything will be okay again.

 At least the coffee here is amazing!
