We just returned on Friday afternoon from the first week-long vacation we have had in YEARS!!
One whole week at the was so lovely. I love the Gulf Coast beaches...Panama City Beach has the softest, whitest sand. And for once, the ocean was perfect. The only really bad day was Monday when Tropical Storm Alberto made its presence known. It was really quite fascinating to watch the resort make "hurricane preparations". A few people actually left, but all we got was 20 minutes of rain, overcast skies, and mondo big waves. And around 5:00 PM, check out the picture...a rainbow!
I also got to read three excellent books...
"Aussie Rules" by Jill Shalvis (it was my favorite...lurrrved Bo Black!) Jill is one of my favorite really should check her out. Seriously.
"Hot Item" by Carly Phillips ( a satisfying end to the "Hot Trilogy") and
"The Good, The Bad and the Undead" by Kim Harrison ( I love her series just about as much as I love Sookie Stackhouse and Merry Gentry!)
Back to the real world on Tuesday. *sigh*
It was nice while it lasted.....

Yes. It's that lovely time of the month when all the males in the house are walking on eggshells and shooting each other sideways looks, rolling their eyes when they think I'm not looking.

It ain't easy being the only female in a house full of testosterone. Was one girl-child too much to ask for? At least I'd have an ally.
Even half the canines in this house are male, so I'm still outnumbered!

I need me some serious beach time.
Ahhh, well. Nothing a Xanax and tequila shooter won't cure......
Instant vacation!
