I don't want anyone to think I am uncaring about anything you may post, so I wanted to let you all know that I will be going to the beach with my family tomorrow and won't be back until August 1st. I post this especially for Deanna, as she will be coming back to her biopsy results. And though I am sure that she will get good news, I want her to know why I don't respond to it right away. I am thinking of taking my computer and trying to find an 'internet cafe' so that I can check in mid-week here, and check my emails from my clients and staff. We go to a very quiet beach community with no hotels or board walk and very little night life other than country-western kareoke.
My 8-year-old granddaughter is coming over soon to help me pack, as she knows I care NOTHING about clothes and she always comes before I go anywhere and 'makes outfits' for each day for me. I let her totally decide what I take; she's that much better at it than I am! HA! She will be my 'bed-buddie,' as the beach cottage has 4 bedrooms with 4 double beds, and both 'grandmas' are going and will be doubling up with the 2 grandkids. (My husband is NOT a beach person, and hasn't gone to the beach with us the last 3 years, instead enjoying the peace and quiet of home and having us all gone.) Both of my sons will be there. My older son is bringing his 'girlfriend' (they are both 35) who is a throat surgeon, so I will have medical expertise 'in house'. We plan to read and talk and relax every day, and eat too much seafood and drink too many wine coolers. We go every year and the grandkids are already looking forward to getting me up at dawn to walk the beach and search for seashells and go to 'Jimmies' for a big breakfast before anyone else gets up. There's an annual family Miniature Golf tournament, with a trophy on the line, and a side trip to a water park one day and one day at the boardwalk in Ocean City, MD. Ahhhhhh.......
