READERS! HI! I'M BACK!
First off, I hope you loved The Well-Read Vacay. I pretty much go Internet-Silent when I go on vacation, but while I wasn't responding to comments/tweets/etc I did see all the lovely interactions happening on the guest blogs. I hope you all adore Katie, Cari, Shannon, and Jennifer as much as I do, and continue to frequent their awesome bloggy blogs!
Second, where was I? I don't usually post about the specifics of my vacation plans on the Interwebz beforehand, because I am a paranoid superfreak, but I will gladly share them with you now. We rented a condo down in Cape May, New Jersey, and it was fantastic, though admittedly also hectic. I actually had to leave last Saturday (with Small Fry in tow) without my husband, which was NOT the original plan.
(**Potential buyers of our house should stop reading this post now and go do something awesome...like read a book! WOOOO!**)
Okay, are they gone? My husband had to stay home because the downstairs of our house FLOODED 3 days before we left. And did I mention that we are trying to sell said house, like ASAP?? We have never, ever had flooding before, but Mother Nature chose THIS moment to gang up on us. So dear Hubs stayed behind to dry out the house and replace the carpet so that the Open House and showings we had scheduled could go on. Luckily, he did a fantastic job and was able to join us in Cape May on Tuesday.
(If any buyers DID accidentally read that, please rest assured that we fixed everything...AND it's all written up in our property disclosure now...nothing but honesty here, people!!)
Despite that hiccup, we had an awesome time playing on the beach, going to the zoo, eating too much candy/fudge, and hanging out with my brothers (who are in the Coast Guard and stationed in Cape May). Oh, and stalking Tina Fey. She was vacationing there last week too! I was on a mission to make us meet, share witty banter, and become BFFs, but sadly our stars did not align. Next time, T...next time.
In reading news, I actually managed to read 1.5 books, plus most of an audiobook during the drive (though I did take Cari's advice and left my Kindle in the condo during beach trips with Small Fry...very helpful!!).
So now I am off to unpack, and hopefully get these latest reviews written up for you soon. Hope everyone had a fantastic week!
