Vacation Standard Time

Playing Tourist, originally uploaded by blondemom.

Do we have to go back? Cause I don’t wanna leave Vacation Standard Time.

The girls, who normally must be roused awake every day back in normalcy land, are waking up between 6 and 7 a.m. EVERY DAY. That’s about the only negative thing I can come up with about our family getaway. That and the fact that vacations are always far too short. Oh, and the fact that the girls’ bladders apparently are the size of walnuts as they have to pee as soon as we arrive anywhere, especially the pool.

Anyone need a professional beach blogger? I’m your gal. Just pay me in ice cold Corona and sunscreen. OK, OK, a beach front bungalow would do the trick, too. Twist my arm. Well, not too much, as it is a tad sunburned.

Are you and your family headed to the beach this year?

    It looks like I’ve missed your whole vacation blog!! Are you going to do two blogs now? Ah, at any rate I wish I could give myself a corona. Also, I may have been that kid who will not shut the hell up. But as an adult, I can also recognize that kid when I do things like teach Sunday school. It’s precious in very small small doses.

    Erin’s last blog post..Okay! No more!!!

    It’s going to be tough to get back to “normal” and to work. That’s all I’ll say.

    We are really enjoying being beach bums! All four of us! 🙂

    I’m so glad you guys had a great time! I don’t think we’re going to do a long vacation this year since we’re trying to sell our house. But I’m just living vicariously through all you lucky folks!

    The beach can be a relaxing place to get some work done if you actually concentrate on your work and avoid the distractions.
