Jeez, long time no chat. We have no desktop still, and DH still has to order the replacement harddrive from sony (under warranty)... gah, this is craziness. Laptop is home again for now, but it just ain't the same! Oh, and SIL is visiting. Much fun and busy-ness here!
We spent two days basking in the Florida sun, Sunday and Monday, and I came back sporting a doozy of a sunburn on my back. Um, a reminder to me NOT to forget to put sunscreen on my back before sitting on the beach for 10 hours, maybe??? (the "t" on the laptop is broken and driving my crazy.... when it rains it pours with computer problems, no?)
The beach was amazing though. We saw dolphins leaping just offshore (twice!!!) and never did I think I would see this. Oh, and the area was known for bull sharks and we saw some babies within meters of shore. A woman at the store that DH bought drinks at was a lifeguard most of her life and said that you'd never swim in the water if you could see the water from above. Apparently it is FULL of bull sharks and they come really close to shore. It was kind of weird, looking down the beach I'd noticed that no one was really going in past their knees, except for two girls on air mattresses and even they were probably only in chest deep water.
Brynn LOVED the beach. LOVED it. This girl, we're quite certain, was a captain on a fishing boat or something in a former life. She hollers at the sea like she has a score to settle, then furiously beats the water with her hands. Fierce determination, our girl has... fierce.
Tess was also in her element and bravely jumping right in. She got right knocked over by a few waves, but after a brief recovery, in she went again! Oh, and she loved learning to "swim" with me in the hotel pool. Such fun!
bah. Brynn is SUPER cranky right now so I guess this is it for me. I'm not sure if it's teeth or just developmental frustration (the girl is ambitious!), but she's been a bit of a fuss pot the last couple of days. Very strange for her, but we'll go with it (what choice do we have, huh?)
ok, must jet!
hello and hugs to all!
