You know what's awesome? Not having to worry about small kids, because they've grown up and are off on their own. Which means, Friday after work, we can plan to go to a movie. You know what else is awesome, when I went to pick up M after work and she had a particularly bad day and really needed to destress, we had somewhere to go. Instead of going to the movie, we took advantage of the 70 degree weather and headed off to the beach. The salt air smell fantastic and reminded me of summer. We were able to enjoy the late afternoon and the sunset.
Plus we walked on the boardwalk to get some exercise and get rid of the stress of the day, then went out for a wonderful dinner at a local seafood restaurant. Yes, Pat, we had steamed clams. M also had crab imperial and I did the shrimp and ribs special. It's wonderful to be able to be spontaneous and to live near the beach where you have some place to escape to. Ahhhh. We really needed that. I'm going to need it alot in the next four weeks because Friday I got news that I will have 5 cases competing for my attention and completion before we leave for vacation during Spring Break in 4 weeks. Head down and get going I suppose!
