Weekend Coffee Share: I’m Back Like Cooked Crack

Screenshot 2015-04-19 at 5.24.12 PM

If we were having coffee (and as tired as I am, I may actually consider drinking some this time!), I would tell you that I’m finally home after our nice, long vacation. Next, I would beg you to help me unpack and put away all this stuff.

Between Baby Girl’s birthday toys and our luggage and all the clothes to wash, my formerly nice clean house looks like it has been hit by a tornado.

After I complain and beg you to help out, maybe threaten bodily harm if you decline, I’d then tell you that I had a heck of a vacation. We stayed at Myrtle Beach for just over a week. The first six nights were with the kiddos and the next two nights were with another couple.


The kids had a blast while they were here. We spent a lot of time on the beach and in the pools. Baby Girl loved being on the beach for the first time and spent a lot of time crawling around and playing in the sand. Little Man and I went to a pirate dinner show with another blogger I met through WordPress. We wentΒ go kart racing. We rode rides at Broadway. We did all the things.

The funniest part of the whole trip came one day when my family hung out with Linden’s family on the beach one day. Little Man was trying to catch fish with his net under the pier when a lifeguard blew the whistle at him to tell him to move. We watched as LM exchanged words with the lifeguard, and then he stormed back over to us and told us “I can’t believe that guy disrespecting a little kid like that, telling me not to play there?!” (The lifeguard wasn’t wearing typical lifeguard clothes, which I think was the deal, but it sure was funny!)

When the kids left on Friday, I had to wait a while for our two friends to arrive, and then we had some adult fun on the beach, which was super relaxing. As was the next day.

All in all, it was a great vacation. The kids had a wonderful time, plus it was great to meet some new friends and have some relaxing adult time at the end. And, the icing onΒ the good week cake was that the Supreme Court ruled in favor of gay marriage, the ACA was upheld, and the governor of my state (South Carolina) wants to take down the Confederate flag from state grounds. Pretty big stuff there! (And judging from some stuff I’ve seen on Facebook, I’m pretty sure you’ll see a couple ranting posts from me soon.)

To wrap up our coffee share, I’d tell you that I have a heck of a lot of blogs to catch up on and comment on. I managed to read a few, but not many, but the ones I didn’t get to are hanging out in my inbox. Now I have to choose between laundry and reading blogs. Eh, it’s summer–less is more, right?

    I went to myrtle beach when I was in college and the fond memories of that vacation will be with me always. the thing I remember the most was waking up every morning to the sound of the ocean waves.

  4. I was missing your presence, glad to catch up on your happenings. You must have really enjoyed adult time after with kids. It’s more like a duty when you vacation with your little ones, gets better once they are a bit older and not eating sand.
    A vacation after a vacation.. Definitely true
