Welcome ICLW folks, read the street cred for quick back info.
I’m actually on vacation – which for me doesn’t mean leaving my laptop at home. Horrors! Oooh, it’s tough putting it down. So I gotta make this quick. We’re staying at a fantastic house rental on Galiano Island where there isn’t much to do except visit rocky shores, sit on a log and hike a mountain. We had hoped to drive to the States, maybe do the Oregon Coast, but the Precious does not have a passport and we’re still waiting on his permanent residency.
We need to not do much of anything except hang out as a family. DH and the Precious are like two peas in a pod. I have my time alone. I nap. Drink coffee. Watch them. Take pictures. Make salad. Try not to cringe when the Precious brings a caterpillar in a Pringles can to me. The weather has been variable, but it’s not raining so I’m not complaining. I had a lovely birthday/Father’s Day cause they happened to fall on the same day this year. Oh, I was loathe to give up my princess day but hey, it wasn’t so bad. I brought a fine Australian shiraz along called Woop Woop. Thought that was appropriate. And a bottle of Smirnoff Pomegranate martini. (OMG, it was f*** delicious over crushed ice.) Which is now empty.
DH is a great dad and he deserves breakfast in bed. Well, he didn’t get that, but I made coffee and gave him the gift I brought along. A framed photo of him and the Precious. And he’d have another gift except Canada Post is on strike so that gift didn’t arrive before we left. A different kind of “gift” did arrive. That’s right, my period. Well, at least I’m in a better mood anyway.
This is nice, though, really nice. We really needed this. I’ll write more later.
