and the journey here was mostly carefree and uneventful.
for me, that is.
because i was driving the car without the kids. the car in which the air conditioning did not in fact go out in the middle of the desert. i was not one of the poor members of my family soaking in sweat when we stopped at that jack in the box where the people had pity on us and gave my kids cool little halloween buckets.
life was good. for me. and for all of us. even with that whole tsunami warning scheduled for the approximate time we were pulling up at our beach house.
but we are here. and we are blessed. we have the wonderful opportunity to stay in a place similar to this:
and by "similar to" i actually mean "not at all like" this. because aside from running water and electricity, there are very few similarities.
but again, its on the beach. and what more could we ask for?
well, ok, a lot, but we are more than content and happy we can temporarily afford a place close enough for anthony to drive to work and also close enough to paradise outside our back door.
yep, life is good.
