I attempted to get this post up yesterday but, unfortunately, the Tortoise is on vacation with me. The Tortoise is our ancient laptop which works so slowly that this post that was supposed to go up yesterday decided to wait until today. He's a stubborn little critter and needs a lot of coaxing. I threatened to toss him in the trash so he decided to cooperate with me today. I updated the post a bit and instead of wishing everyone a "Happy Independence Day" yesterday:
I hope everyone HAD a wonderful July 4th! We are on vacation at the seashore for the next two weeks and you wouldn't believe how packed the beach was today (errrr, yesterday, that is) - they predicted a crowd of 150,000 to 200,000 on the local beaches today (yesterday) and I think the forecasters were right on target. We were packed like sardines! Crowded beaches aren't my favorite thing but Michaela wanted to go to the main beach today, so we agreed. Yesterday (the day before, actually) we went to a much more secluded spot. Randy fished, the kids played, and I read on the beach. I did dip my feet in the water but they instantly went numb (those who live in the Northeast know what I mean) so I hobbled back to my chair and let the kids turn into ice cubes along with my husband. Charity, in my case, does not extend to walking out of the ocean with a ice cube stuck to your nose. (The Lord certainly agrees with me on this one - He knows all about walking ON TOP of the water rather than in it. Peter on the other hand....)
Oh yes ...the hair. I forgot about the hair. Likely it will have all fallen out by the end of the summer so perhaps I need not worry about it after all and can begin anew :)
I hope everyone had a great weekend!!
