Almost There

I have one day left of work and then I'm off for a week.  If I felt better, I'd do a cartwheel.

Please picture that.

Okay, now that you're done laughing.  We are going to St. Petersburg, Florida for five days.  We rented a house with a pool, and I plan to have my fluffy behind planted in there for the majority of the time.  BOTH my kids will be joining us and our friends Mike and Tracy, and their kids.  I am so looking forward to reading books and cooling off in the water. 

I'm still working on getting rid of this nagging cough, but I'm SO much better than I was a week ago at this time.  I hate getting sick.

Has everyone been to Florida?  I had never been there until my 30's.  Now, I feel like I'm there at least once a year.  We enjoy renting a house with a pool, and they have plenty of those.

Did you pretend you were a synchronized swimmer when you were younger?  I used to do the most gorgeous routines in the Holiday Inn swimming pool.  (that's where I swam during the summers, no club pools for our family!)  I never wore that dumb thing on my nose, but I'm sure I looked super cool doing my routines.

My mom used to do the sidestroke in the pool.  She didn't want to get her hair wet.  Geezo Peezo Mom.

Happy End of July!

What books are you gonna' read?

Angie, I'm currently reading "Girl Gone" or "Gone Girl." I can't remember which. It's a good mystery thriller.

I also have a fluff book by Jill Mansell.

And, something by Chris Cleave. I can't wait!!!

Ooh, cartwheels! Have a lovely week off...I love how you and your family actually take the time to vacation. It's so important! I have to convince my husband of that fact all the time! We've traveled but have not had a "real" vacation in 3 or 4 years. October: vacation!
