Top 10 Things I’ve Learned While On Vacation In N.C.

Let’s hope the connection lasts long enough for me to post this while the kids are eating and the wife is still snoozing! 🙂

10. Driving 12 hours straight through the night is dumb.
Yeah…I did it. And we were pretty much wasted the entire day after. I’ll never do THAT again…

9. Putt Putt can be expensive!
2 courses into the vacation and I’m out close to $60! And no Holes-In-One?!?!? Fuggetaboutit!

Addition: As of today (Thursday), I now have 2 Holes In One! Yahoo! But it cost me another $20…damn!

8. Kids are NOT interested in giant, monolithic monuments dedicated to dead white guys.
Doesn’t matter if it IS the Wright Brothers…a 6 year old and a 3 year old just don’t get it…

7. I CAN read a novel in 2 days!
“Last Light” by Michael Connelly was a fast read…and very entertaining!

6. Having limited internet and phone service is a good thing!
Now I can vacation in peace without all the other stuff. But I DO miss my blog!

5. Relatives who loan us their beach house for a week are now at the TOP of my “Favorite People In The Whole World” list…
Thanks to Steph’s Aunt & Uncle who gave us a week of fun and sun. I owe them BIG TIME!

4. Sand can hurt!
Walking on the Dunes here with the wind blowing, sand can really pelt you! And it’s hot! The kids didn’t like it. We left.

3. Naps are AWESOME!
I gotta do it more often…

2. You have to put the sunblock on EVERY spot exposed to the sun.
Otherwise you end up looking all blotchy. Not a sexy look…trust me…

Don’t know if it’s the sun or the sand or the water or the sounds…but I love it!

    I can’t even begin to express the level of my jealousy at your being at a beach.

    Someday, I will live in or around a beach. It is the one place in the world that instantly relaxes me.

    The fake beach sounds on my sleep machine don’t quite cut it when I’m lying in my stuffy bedroom.

    Have fun! Can’t wait to see pictures! Miss ya!

    I’m totally jealous, but I’ll be at the beach in two weeks. I can’t wait!!! Miss you, can’t wait to see pics, give my love to Steph and the babes:)

  3. So now you know why I can’t leave California! Glad you’re having fun!

    So that’s where you went!
    When we had to drive 12 hours to the beach a couple months ago, we drove through the night. Took a short nap once we hit the hotel and were good to go!
    I love love loooove the beach!
