Puerto Rico is Perfect!
I honestly don't have anything bad to say which is actually pretty amazing considering my negative nancy attitude lately.
I could go without the insurmountable number of dead iguanas on the side of the road or the fried food that clogs an artery the moment it enters your mouth, but it's all part of the experience. 
The weather here is so much fun.
Most days are sunny and fantastically perfect but others have sudden onsets of monsoon rains which have resulted in Golf Course Slip & Slide with trash bag unitards and a gallon of liquid soap along with our beautiful four story home turning into a scene from Jumanji.
This comparison is not to be taken lightly.
Not only did the first and second floor of our home acquire 5 inches of water, but we also had the Amazon River shooting down our stairs along with two back breaking waterfalls coming over the balcony into the family room (thankfully the whole house is tile).
It was amazing!
I haven't laughed that hard in such a long time.
Not to mention, this flood couldn't have come at a more perfect time.  
Three days previous to this event, we had minor difficultly with our downstairs toilet.  
Anytime a toilet from the rest of the house was flushed, a shower was taken, or laundry was done, all water would travel down to the guest toilet and proceed to overflow into the family room ultimately resulting in two days of the entire downstairs floor being flooded with turd floating, fowl smelling, sewage water.
Leave it to me to be the retard in flip flops, treading through the kitchen while making pancakes for breakfast as poop and toilet paper floated past.
I offered to make some for the rest of the house but appetites were severely diminished.
I don't think my jokes about fresh "chocolate chips" helped.
So after this little incident, we managed to get the toilet fixed and the house drained, but never got a chance to seriously scrub the floors.
Needless to say, our floors are spotless now!
