I went to the beach today.
Without the kids.
With a friend.
And a book, that I didn't read.
And plenty of food, that I did eat.
Plenty of sun to go around.
It was nice watching everyone else with their kids work their butts off to be sure it was a good day. It was even nicer watching them while I sat on my butt doing absolutely nothing. All Day.
Freak downpour came on at 2pm so we left. I'm now home, filling up our kiddie pool to offer the kids some refreshment when they get home.
