I was lost, but now I'm found

I am back and Oh so much better.
We left on Wednesday and drove straight through to Rehoboth Beach and man was it miserable from all the rain. We were exhausted by time we got there. I was extremely surprised at how big the town was, I was honestly expecting it to look about as big as Mackinaw City Michigan. Holy Cow Batman, it was big and OH YEAH Outlet malls every where you looked! Woohoo to bad I'm broke though LOL. No taxes also, that's a kicker huh! I have to get my pictures off my phone so I can post them on here. On Thursday we went to the beach and I loved it.

I could have spent the rest of my life right on that beach. I think the waves healed me. I feel as though they washed all my troubled thoughts and feelings away. I feel lighter, I think it's because I realized my life is mine and I make what I want of it. I am me, I am what I think I am. For the first time in my life I feel as though I can just not care about what others think or feel towards me. I have spent my whole life trying to please others and give them what they want and tell them what they want. I won't do it any more.

Life is exceptional. I have to do whatever I can to make sure I remember that.

Thursday was spent packing up the house and shopping. Ahhhh I love to shop! If you ever need someone to shop with you I have this unbelievable knack of shopping for hours on end. I can spend 3 hours walking and looking at Wal-Mart, Meijer, or Target even though I know exactly what they have on their shelves every single time I go there and it's often. I just love being out. Don't get me wrong I love being at home also, but there is just something about looking and staring at things. I don't buy a lot due to being broke 97% of the time, but hey shopping is shopping as far as I am concerned. I did buy a couple shirts at Lane Bryant that I desperately needed, and a set of Pink Spatulas at Le Gourmet or some such place. I picked up a coffee mug for Tom seeing how he collects them, and that's about the only thing I can find that I know he would want.

Thursday evening was not fun, my step daughter came into my room and was crying because she said there was bugs in the bathtub and her hairbrush! I hung up with Tom and checked it out. I had her wake up Nana and she in turn and woke up Tom's Aunt. We all concluded that OMG!!! C. had critter's! Yes she had lice! Nana and I went to CVS at 9:40pm and got a kit to rid us of these little intruders. I spent 2 hours doing just that. We had to throw away pillows and wash everything that we could in the hottest water we could. My head is itching just telling this story! No I didn't catch any critters either I have had my head checked at least 6 times since Thursday night and I even washed my head in the critter shampoo.
C. caught her critters from a little girl at school because she felt sorry for the little girl because the other kids were making fun of her for having critters and C. didn't think it was nice and played with her at recess. At least so got them from kindness and not uncleanliness right? I know critters are critters though. So C. is now clear of all critters and this makes for a very happy Linda.

We left Friday late afternoon but not before we went to the beach for a few and I even got a bit of a light burn due to not thinking it was so hot out. It was so beautiful and I never wanted to leave but we had to start out and get some driving time in. We stayed at a Holiday Inn Friday evening and drove the rest of the way on Saturday.

Over all it was an awesome trip but I traveled 40 hrs from Friday April 10 to Sunday April 19 and I was exhausted to say the least.

Have a great day and Smile more
