I keep sitting down intending to blog and getting distracted! It’s already wed. of our beach week. Time flies when you’re having fun. And we are! I mean simply getting out of the heat, is a party! It’s so nice to drive w/ the windows rolled down and go outside during daylight hours! It is hot here.. I was walking up from the water and the sand was so hot that it totally burned the under-side of my toes and they were totally blistered! Sheesh! And, of course, as I always do-every year… got a total burn. And that hurts too. I guess that is what I get for not being in the sun all summer.
I will tell you this… I am feeling GUILTY.
I haven’t been able to get myself to work… I have developed a real problem …
Holy cow. Ok- I have heard that it was an addictive show… and I have even witness the addiction in my husband, and I was SO happy when he finally got trough the whole thing.
He had downloaded it to my video ipod for his most recent trip to china. So both seasons of LOST were on there… eric’s been monopolizing the unit.. which was fine, as I have just been soo busy. But on the drive over here, I started watching.
It’s been an issue ever since. There are like 25 episodes per season, and 2 seasons. At 45 minutes each—it’s like a straight 2.5 days worth of show to watch. It’s so bad. I am being totally anti-social, and not even working on my scrapbook stuff, my work or anything else I am supposed to be doing. (like taking care of my kids, getting them food/drink etc)… I am thoroughly enjoying myself. But I feel guilty! LOL. I keep telling them, the sooner I get through it the better.
I do think that sitting on the beach is a great muse.
This year, I don’t really have to STRESS about my kids. I mean, I am constantly doing the ‘headcount’ thing, and stuff like that, but they all are totally fine playing in the waves and sand… doing their own thing. (next year will be a different story). I find myself just staring out and watching the show as ideas pop through my head. I sit there with my notebook and just jot down the fragmented thoughts and ideas that bounce through. It’s been a LONG time since I felt like I could just sit and imagine stuff. It’s important for me to do that from time to time. I feel so lucky to have this opportunity. While the ocean babysits.
I do feel guilty tho. My team is in Chicago getting ready for the show. I thought that I was going to be fine with it. Missing it… just this time. But I can feel my tension, and anxiety. My mind racing, thinking of all the things that they are having to deal with, without me there. Sigh. I am trying to let that go.
But… to my girls there in chi-town: em, liz, jodi and kara… thanks so so much!
I appreciate your willingness to be there!! How cute are the silver shoes?? Please take pics!!
I know everyone is waiting for the water photo contest! We do have a winner… but I have to set up the blast for the newsletter.. but everyone has been so wrapped up in the show, it’s been an issue! I am SO sorry!
Hang in there..
Ok, hopefully pics later..
