Pretty day, huh?
So here we are for a week at the beach and the forecast for the next six days goes something like this: scattered storms, thunder, lightening, more storms, gigantic waves, red warning flags on the beach, clouds so thick and gray that the sun cannot possibly peer through, more thunderstorms . . .
And, our lovely, spacious condo is going to get really small.
But, here's what's good:
1. I am lying in bed facing a huge picture window that looks out over the ocean (and only one of my children is in here right now--this counts as bliss)
2. Some good friends who have two girls are down here right now (good friends we haven't seen in about six years), and we are getting them together.
3. I got to a really good stopping place in my book revisions before I left home. I'm going to take a break from it and work on some other stuff while I'm down here.
4. I'm reading a very cool arc from a friend--stay tuned for an author interview. This one will blow you away!
5. We're at the BEACH!
Of course, the laundry beast somehow found me and followed me down here--Lila mentioned the beast in her post (incidentally, that exact Seinfeld episode was on last night). Surely someone can come up with disposable clothes and towels for vacations? I mean, I know that's not very "green" but mama needs a break. Maybe a laundry lesson for the kiddos is on our activity list for the week. I know. I'm such a fun mom. I'm going to break out the multiplication table flash cards later today.
