I’m trying to be all healthy and active and whatnot

I Read A Lot of Internets

beach: day i-lost-track

Well, I think I can officially say that I am homesick. I mean, I really like it here. We get to sleep in a king-sized bed and I know that the wheels are now turning in my head to try to figure out to make that a reality in our daily life even though those suckers are expensive. Then, of course, there is the beach and all its glory. We’ve had near perfect weather everyday. The sand is incredibly soft (but HOT in the middle of the day), the water is nearly clear and the waves aren’t harsh at all.

But I miss relaxing on our ugly couch at the end of the day. I miss our cat. But I know that I need to shake this off since before we know it, we’ll be home. And really un-fun things like school and work will start bearing down on us.

I’m sure part of it is the aforementioned snarky menses. But I think there’s something else eating at me. Our last few summer vacations have been spent with Tracey and her family. They were supposed to come with us on this trip, too, but couldn’t. I think they’re definitely my “beach buddies” and I’m really noticing their absence. Perhaps I’m “homesick” for the long tequila-and-Fresca-fueled chats that Tracey and I have and the companionship between M and the baby that prevents both of them from getting beach dementia.

For instance, I don’t think the baby would have tried to pick up that gigantic table lamp just now if M were here. Ahem.

  • dude, it burns. miss you guys too.

    hopefully we can get our shit together $-wise and maybe rent a rehoboth house this fall/winter, when things are a gazilion times cheaper. kind of counting on me again making $, and some bonus ackshon from jamie.

    it’ll happen. just a little later than usual.


    • also really missing M as a conversation partner for the baby. my child never ever ever ever shuts up. and it’s much more noticeable when there isn’t another small person around to bounce the inanity off of.

  • I always see cheap, nice looking king size sheets, though, so maybe that makes up for the large amount you have to pay up front? Or something that makes sense. You know.

  • kent

    I think I went to high school with Snarky Menses. He was the guy who went everywhere with a copy of the Black Sabbath Paranoid LP under his arm.

    My favorite vacation-with-our-kids was to the beach in NC. My brother Ian showed up with his pet ferret. We ate crabs. I spent about 3 hours a day in the water.
