Saturday looks rather like I feel. Meh. Does everyone get the after holiday blues? Yesterday I was surprised to receive this little gem in the mail. It’s herbal so no caffeine or sugar or artificial sweetener. It comes in 5 flavors and each is a tiny silky sachet you just pop in a bottle of water. Within 3 minutes it was dark. And delicious! I was surprised because I had thought it would taste all artificial like those powders you put in your water bottle, but no, it is really good!
I was thinking last night that some of the things that went on were just too weird to believe. Unfortunately, they happened. Why go on vacation to sit and watch television and eat junk food? I wanted to eat local and jump waves and I was not in the mood for drunks or drug addicts. Obviously, this isn’t my family. We are Southern, we don’t air our dirty laundry or bad habits in public. One only came out at night to tweak his way through the refrigerator and ask if Tommy wanted to go dumpster diving behind CVS. One slept until 2 every day. I guess she just expected us to watch her 3 kids. By the third day, I had had enough Not getting to sleep until 3 a.m. and being rudely woken by people coming to our kitchen for coffee. It was at that point that I screamed, “One more sound and I will cut your balls off!” It worked. I slept and no one was around when I woke up. They were a bit better after that. Not much.
My favorite thing was being with Tommy and his sister and her family, and of course, Aunt Gayle. We had the most fun running that beach in our golf carts. Some guy offered us free pizza but nothing to drink. Jennifer and I thought we could turn this “girls in bikinis on golf carts” thing into a buffet! I’m sure we saw either a baptism or a drowning one day. It was a church van, so maybe the first, but who knows really?
We saw so many turtles and one waved his flipper at me. Tommy said he did not and just like that, the little guy popped up and flipped me again! Totally tubular dude! Did you find Dory?
The big news is we came back with a new Nissan Rogue and 2 job offers. Look out Texas, there could be trouble!
