Sun Sand and Sanity

I was just having my morning conversation with my Cousin. We're both pretty excited because I have 2 weeks vacation this year and I'm really really going to try and make it home for a long week.

We had to laugh because when they told me at work I get that 2nd week my first words were "I can go home". My boss said that very thought scared him, since I might not come back!!

If he only knew......last time I got transfered up here for an extended period I went back to Tampa for 2 weeks and never went back. hehehehehe. (and I am after all, disposable!)

But that whole conversation turned to how much I miss the sunshine. A bit of sand on my bare feet would be a very welcome thing right now. She mentioned that the weather there today was rainy and windy. Not such good beach weather. That made me laugh. I remember weekends when I just needed some "therapy" and would drive until I found sunshine. I've driven 4+ hours just to be able to sit on the sand, in the sun and relax. Right now - that sounds like a chunk of heaven to me.

Some days I miss Florida more than others. Some days I wonder WHY I'm doin' this. I know, I know.....it's the right thing and I really truly do not regret it. I'm actually very happy up here. But some days...........

I believe I will be down there around June 8, if that fits into your plans at all...

Last two days its been 'get your skin sandblasted off your bones' beach days. I need a beach day in a bad way to get myself regrounded and centered, but man, fighting that wicked stinging sand is just NOT the way to do it. Yikes!
