The Coach booked rooms for the team (and chaperones) at condo units ON.THE.BEACH. Yep, he rolls like that. And the girls fundraised enough to warrant this.
It was a great time for all; a light schedule & good camaraderie. The Coach cooked omelets each morning with all the fixins and then the girls had two games per day, (only 1 game on the last day) and headed to the beach each afternoon. Then the pool. Then the hot tub. Then the shower.
They won 4 out of 5 games.
I could not convince that cruise ship to slow down and pick me up!
We enjoyed ourselves. I got my shins and my forehead sunburned (I am not the one to ask for sunscreen application. OK?)
Lindsay is still working on this whole flying thing…
Hey, that sand there is so hard, I could have broke a hip if I fell….not.even.kidding.
And……I am wondering WHY if we live 7 miles from the beach…that it took me 4 and a half hours to drive and get excited about being at.the.beach? Weirdo.
On to my new obsession. Words With Friends. I blame this solely on my blog friend Juggling Jenn…she innocently asked me if I wanted to play. (It is scrabble between two folks, played on your ‘Droid or Iphone or Itouch.)
I explained to Jenn that I am really only good with THREE letter words….even though you would think FOUR letter words would be my specialty.
Really, I stink at it. BUT I love it and I am trying to expand my vocabulary. And In the process I am making up words left and right. Qi, shad, boor, heft, hent, huns, jib….yep those are all words. I don’t know what they mean….but they get me points dangit.
So far, out of a dozen or so games, I have only won ONE game. (I am currently winning against my ex step-sister though…yes, we both went to the same public school and I pity the fool!)
The one person I did beat was a ‘random’ player… meaning, I don’t know WHO that person is. I told the Coach: “Must be a FOUR year old….cause that might be the only way I could win!”
But I’ll continue to play and lose. And make up new words in the process. One day, I might get out the dictionary to help me along….but then again, making up words and then finding out IT IS A REAL word is kinda fun and rewarding.
Yeah, that’s how I roll.
You download the app off your ‘marketplace’…’tis a free game peeps. If you want to play with me, shoot me an email with your user name. That way, I can share my three letter words with you too.
Have a beautiful weekend doing something uncomplicated and easy.
You are uncomplicated and easy, aren’t you?
We still have our flooring guys here….we will add in a drywall guy, and my plumber guy too. Looks like a ‘guys’ weekend with ME!!!
I’d better let them know I am not FUN or EASY. Ok, I might be fun.
