It's...Okay To Be Back

We're home! I would say it's good to be back, but, well...vacation is pretty awesome, and I really still love my old house, so coming home was kind of...a downer :(

Brighter side: Vacation was pretty good! We stayed a whole extra day so that I could swim. Aw! I was so happy that my family would do that for me. It was great. There were some truly hilarious people that hung out at the pool. I laughed out loud several times. There was one family with two little boys, an older boy, mom, dad, grandma and grandpa. They were really something :) Southern and...not the most well-mannered family ever ;) Still, they weren't really obnoxious, and they were pretty funny. Their hotel room was on the third floor, overlooking the pool. They kept leaving stuff out on the balcony to let it dry, and it would fall off the railing. Once they yelled down at my mom and dad to get a flip flop for them, but mostly they just kept coming down and getting the fallen item and going back up. Once, I saw them spying on me with bonoculars. Lols! The older boy seemed like the most polite of them all. He was definitely in the redneck category, but he was considerate and seemed nice, too.

Uh-oh side: My mom almost lost all her favorite jewelry! When we decided to stay another night, that was fine with the hotel people, but we had to switch rooms. She accidentally left her jewelry in the drawer of the first room we stayed in. We didn't notice until this morning when we were packing up. She knew she'd left it in the drawer of the first room, so we called the front desk and they checked it out. It wasn't in the drawer, and it wasn't in the lost and found. OH NO! Well, after a few minutes of tragedy and panicking, it turns up in the lost and found after all. The maid had put the jewelry case and stuff in a grocery bag, so the lady looking through the lost and found hadn't recognized it from the description. Go figure.

Redder side: I got sunburned in my new bathing suit! I used to never wear stuff like the one I'm wearing this year, so my chest, like never saw the light of day. Apparently, when your skin isn't used to any sun at all, exposing it to the intense rays of the beach sun is a bad idea with only SPF 6 on. I have lobster chest. Ouch.

Specialer side: It's picture day! I would upload a photo from our trip, but the camera is dead, and anyway, I'm not good at that kind of stuff, lol! So, here's something else instead:

Not exactly what you think of when someone says "beach", but it's pretty, so, whatever ;)

Familiar side: We're going to watch National Treasure tonight! Always a favorite.

Written side: That random scene for "The Mirror" is going really nicely! I can't wait till I figure out what to do with!

Hmm...I know there was something I was going to say...Oh well. Must not have been very important otherwise I'd have remembered, right? Let's hope.

Carpe diem!
