Silly me, I didn't bring my camera with me to the beach. I wouldn't have been able to take many pictures there because of the thick fog. However, on the way home the clouds to the north were dark and I would have gotten a cool shot over a marsh. We didn't get to the coast until after 1pm, but when you're dragging two 14 year olds along who don't want to be with you, at least we got out. It wasn't until we were 2 miles from the beach that I saw the thermometer in my car drop 10 degrees and once at the shore, we couldn't see the water.
My friend called around 10 am this morning while I was watching a chick mini series on USA, I never got the name, but she knew it as "The Starter Wife" and I am thinking it's a movie so I planned on leaving around 12. I told her to have her daughter bring a friend, since my son was planning on calling some one to go also. Alas, none of their friends were able to go, so we literally had to drag them along. Heaven forbid that members of the opposite sex in eighth grade spend time with each other without a gaggle of kids. They do get along and it was fine having them along. Both are our third and we tease them that they are our favorites. As we told them today, times like today are the stupid things you remember most as an adult, the times spent with parents without the siblings and your parent being silly. ( So I was throwing cherry pits at them....) I would have been in the huge waves if we had some sun, still just a tad too cool for me to be in the water.
Since I wasn't able to finish the mini series, I want to get the book,The Starter Wife , it looks like it will be a good mindless read for the summer. Right now I am reading a book about the high cost of medical care in the United States. It's not the most entertaining book, but it's informative. We can go around the the issues of affordable health care, but I strongly believe that within the next five years, it will become a crisis in this country. Based on what I am seeing with health insurance, we will be paying more for less care. What good is being technologically advanced, if the average person can't afford to pay their medical bills?
