I'm just sitting, waiting, wishing....

sitting here listening to Jack Johnson

waiting to eat ice cream while I watch a movie ;)

wishing an episode of my favorite TV show would just come on hulu already. But I have to wait until it's available, while it's available for hulu PLUS. Drrg.

I kayaked today with Rachel, Sam, and Dan, a long ways away. It took even LONGER on the return trip as we were going against the current and the wind. Poor Sam had to be tied to Dan's kayak since he wasn't getting anywhere, only drifting backwards. We all got so frustrated on the way back since we weren't getting anywhere.
     Rachel got mad so she started singing instead of going crazy, she said. I'm not sure what Dan and Sam did, because they were behind me. I made a goal: "I'm going to paddle really hard even though I'm tired and I'm going to try to get past this house"---ten minutes later---"I HAVEN'T GOTTEN ANYWHERE I HATE THE WORLD"
     Let's just say, we were the happiest to be on land again. It was not a very fun trip.

But we're good now. In fact, I'm listening to Pandora radio, reading through a few comments on my blog...I came to the comment Hannah posted on my Plainly Beastie excerpt and smiled. I just want you to know how much I appreciate your ideas, Hannah! Ha ha, that chapter has changed so much with your idea, and my sister-in-law Stephanie's idea. This will be fun to post when I finish.

      Whew, Memorial Day is coming fast! Our tradition is my aunt and uncle come down to Florida with us at our beach house, and we have the whole family too, except my brother and his family, the one in Alaska.

Speaking of the one in Alaska, they're moving to Virgina come June! I'm very excited! They'll finally have a place nice and warm where my nephews Patrick and Jacob can play and they're much closer.

Stephanie is getting out of the army finally in like two months and a half or so. Everyone is VERY excited...

Okay, that's it. I promise. I'll stop. No more.


  1. Oh, I love this post. It's so much fun to learn about you and your family more!

    Your kayak trip sounds like it'll make for some great memories!

    I'm glad I was able to help inspire you on your story! I can't wait to see what you've come up with!

  2. You didn't have to stop posting! Ayway, hope you had fun on your kayak trip even though it was tough on the way back!
