Longing For The Beach

With the holidays over I am now longing to get back down to the beach.  I have had enough of the "ham."  I love having The Boy here on college break though.  I will miss him when he has to back to school.

Ken is ready to head back down to the beach too.   We love the beach and can only be away for short periods of time before we have severe withdrawals.  It's been almost two months now so I think we are over due.

Next week are going to head down to the beach for a long weekend.  I am running in a half marathon next weekend and The Boy needs to buy his books for this coming semester.  We are going to swing by the college and get the books and then head to the beach to get ready for the half marathon.   We can only stay a few day days this time though.

After we get back, we are all going to be extremely busy getting the house cleaned up and ready to put on the market and The Boy will be back in the swing of things at school.  We are looking at several options as far as permanent moves, all but one involves being near the coast.  Of course, we are pulling for the coastal options first, but it depends on jobs, career opportunities, and finding a place we love.  Our first choice is being near The Boy and not being to far away from The Girl, Ken's daughter, who still has one year left of college unless she decides to go to grad school.  Both of "The Kids" are so smart and talented (in different ways ) and have so many options available to them.

It's all very exciting!  An adventure!  We can't wait to get started.

  1. oooh, glad you are going back to get your coastal fix.

    i should be having beach withdrawals, as we haven't been able to go in a long time (hostile conditions). hey, maybe i am having withdrawals...maybe that's what's wrong with me lately!
