We're leaving. We're not leaving. Okay, now we're leaving.

Well, if you saw my Facebook or Twitter, you might have heard that we were all excited about leaving for the beach today.

That was our intention, anyway.

My daughter had a fever for two days and I was afraid that it would delay our trip but she woke up this morning fever free so we started preparing to leave.

I'm not sure what happened. We dilly dallied around and then it occurred to me that we actually did not have a place to stay until tomorrow at Noon.

I guess Hubby just thought we would stay at a hotel for tonight. So, he went to checking the internet for a hotel. There were plenty of them just waiting for our family of 4.

In the end, we just decided it was not worth the price they were asking. Beachfront hotels or even close to the beach hotels can be a little proud of their two queen beds in a box.

So, here we are. Waiting to leave first thing in the morning to our condo that we've rented for 3 years in a row. It almost feels like home! Except smaller and with a beachfront view.

We did enjoy some Mexican food and finally watched Slumdog Millionaire tonight instead. Wow, what a great movie. I cried like a baby. I just don't have the words to express my feelings on India sometimes. I have several friends that go on mission trips there and bring back pictures from their trips. The faces of the children are just unbelievably beautiful. Just look at my sidebar of that Compassion child in India. The things they have to go through tear my heart apart. Anyway, it is a movie you should watch. Definitely.

I'll be posting some at the beach. I will have downtime in the evenings as my hubby always tries to put together some million piece puzzle that leaves me bored to tears. He finds it relaxing. I find it hurts my head.

I did get a new camera today! Similar to the one (but better) that I dropped in the water last year when I went to the beach. It was marked down about 50% at WM! Woo Hoo - love a good deal. I am so excited to have a decent camera again - I've been taking the worst photos.

Okay, so see you this week!
