Semi-Slacker Summer Summary - Part 2

You can check out Part 1 here.

So there we are 3 days into a 7-day vacation.  And there was no way I was leaving.  I'll camp out on the beach before I go home.  And at home our electricity NEVER stays out for more than a few hours.  Good job Flint EMC.

Tuesday morning we woke up fully expecting the power to be on, it wasn't.  I felt the need to investigate the situation, come to find out during the storm, a waterspout took out 2 power polls in the bay.  Lovely.  Now I know that Retro is coming Wednesday evening & he would be pissed if the power was out.  (Remember this is the 1st beach trip he has been able to attend.  And nothing was going to screw that up.)  So I told the workers they had till Wednesday afternoon to get things fixed & they (actually one guy) assured me it would.

So in the meantime, my partner-in-crime, Hooch & I took over the island on our golf carts. 
If you knew how much I was sucking in!
 And we don't usually dress like this, it was her littlest's bday.
Fortunately the liquor store had a generator, the ice cream store didn't but the liquor store did & I'm glad they had their priorities in order. Hooch & I became regulars, the cashier even let us charge up our phones!

Guess what day power was restored...Wednesday.  Guess what time...5pm.  Guess what time Retro got there...6pm. 

Aside from the power thing, which now makes for a funny story, we had a great va-cay.  Maybe it was the fact that I became a liquor store regular.  Sassy started eating oysters. yum. I had the best shrimp & grits EVER. (If you have a good recipe, send it.)  And... I got a great family beach picture.

July was spent swimming & more swimming; attending a surprise party; tripping to the water park; VBS, awesome this year I did the games; we got a new pet store in town & became regulars, at the beach-liquor store regular, home- pet store regulars.

I had some surgery, an ovary removed, laparoscopic. It almost made me reconsider a tummy tuck. almost.  And Baby Girl got her nose broken over an altercation over a DS.

What did y'all do?  I tried to write "what did" like I say it, but couldn't & whatcha ain't it.

Sounds like a fun and crazy summer! I had an ovarian cyst removed Aug 5. Second time, and way less pleasant this time around. They act like it's no big deal, but the air in the tummy is awful!

I'm glad you had a great time, and that your surgery went well.

Sucking it in or not, I wouldn't put on a bikini, not even for my kid's birthday. I'm most impressed!
