We just returned from a week at the beach. Compared to last year, it was a dream vacation. There was very little drama involving little people, particularly during the drive to and fro. This is largely thanks to the dual-screen portable DVD player and Despicable Me. So we played it over and over and over again. That is largely preferable to the kids screaming.
It was somewhat unseasonably chilly in southern Alabama, but we all made do. By mid-week, the sun came out. Hallelujah and all that jazz.
It was nice. I got to eat lots of delicious seafood that we normally can’t afford. I didn’t get to really sleep/rest much, but one day my children did sleep until almost 7:00 AM!!. That was due, no doubt, to the daily routine of playground or splash ground followed by inadequate napping and at least 2 more sessions of swimming of at least an hour each.
So now it’s back to the grind. Damn it.
On the upside, Halloween is coming. The kids’ costumes are already in. It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
Boring blog, y’all. Sorry.
