We're back. Fun long weekend at the beach. Beautiful weather and not too hot! We went to the pool, went to the beach, flew kites, ate seafood, crossed the only remaining floating bridge on the Inter coastal waterway, read (me), played miniature golf (not me, I let the boys go without me)and just relaxed. MIL was glad to be away, too and we had a perfect view from our condo of the boats going down the waterway.
Today we've already been to Target and bought 2nd grade school supplies. Yes, year round school starts Monday! I've finally accepted this change (it took me about 8 months) and we go to orientation at the new school tonight. Truth be told, I'm actually glad that #1 will be separated from #2 once again. They have been aggravating each other and me. With MIL here we haven't been able to do as much in these last four weeks, but I think I've kept them fairly entertained. That's our job right? To entertain?
Ok, now to other random things. The book I'm devouring is "The Other Boleyn Girl" by Phillippa Gregory. So juicy and crazy to think that life in the 16th century may have been like this. It's a fun read and I don't want it to end. Unfortunately, we all know what happens to Anne Boleyn. Have you read it? It's a little trashy and educational at the same time. I hear all of her other books are just as brilliant. Stepping away from my love of all things French, I also watched some Wimbledon tennis this weekend and enjoyed my new Coldplay cd. It was a British(ish) weekend!
And I could not miss "The Bachelorette" while at the beach. I almost missed it, but remembered about 15 minutes into the show. Still wondering why she let Jeremy go! Good night. Was she not paying attention when his shirtless body was on display in the Bahamas? What's not to love there? I think it will be Jason in the end, but their relationship (engagement) will last two months tops and then maybe she needs to beg Jeremy for a second chance. If not, I'm thinking he needs to be the next "Bachelor". Ladies, do you agree?
