The Office Assistant/Blogger Has Left the Building



I started to say "It's that time of year again," referring to vacation time, but we don't necessarily take annual vacations.

And it has been about 15 years since Jorge and I went away together for an extended period of time.

But by the time you read this, Jorge and I will be on our way to beautiful Siesta Key, Florida, for our 2nd honeymoon, a 25th anniversary celebration.

I'm having a little trouble getting started packing, and that is why I'm sitting here with you now.

I think the older I get, the more difficult it is to get up and go, you know what I mean?

I just told my mom goodbye on the phone. She was shocked that we are leaving, even though I was just plucking her eyebrows at her house last night telling her all about Siesta Key and definitely told her when we were leaving. I felt a little sorry for her and told her I would call when we get there. That made her feel better.

And then she asked me, "Are you going to take shorts?"

I have no idea why she would ask that, except we had already been over the speech where she worries out loud and she couldn't think of anything else to say.

She worries, you know.

Did I mention my baby girl is at Myrtle Beach with a friend as I type this? I had to have a little talk with her before she left.

I worry, you know.

I didn't ask her if she had packed shorts.

See you all soon--lots of beach pics to follow, I hope!

Don't forget to do the stingray shuffle at the edge of the water and until you get about hip deep.
Lots of stings this summer.
Have fun. Wear a hat!

Have a wonderful time you two! We celebrated our 25th last year...we're still trying to figure out how to celebrate! The older we get...the harder it is to get going. It's so true!
