Lack of vacation updates? Blame the iffy Internet connection...but its still better than the connection I thought I'd have from here...which isn't hard since I didn't expect any.

Yesterday and today we've been blessed with sun. It is absolutely spectacular, so much so that we decided to take the CRV off-roading a bit. You see, all the roads on the Outer Banks end if you go far enough north. We'd never been so we thought we'd give it a shot. It was gorgeous although it felt incredibly isolated...because it is. We're not sure we'd ever stay up there but it was nice to drive through.

nonetheless, i'm starting to hate you a little bit. just a little. everything will be fine when you return to work.

Are you trying to make us hate you? Those of us vacationless bums like myself are having to go down DEEP to be really, really happy for you right now. Just kidding, of course you two DESERVE to enjoy your last child-free vacation! I mean, I understand Beth has her right now, but you know what I mean.

Have fun, Cactus-Fish family!

Ah- a lovely breath of fresh air and sunshine!S,C &A are ranting and calling people names, Hoss is still whining about his pile or lack thereof, Dr. Laura has "cervical plug" and "mucous" in tonight's post and mine is some dreck about George W. Plus I'm pissy because I've discovered I'm the last person on the planet to find out that iTunes sells worthless MP4s that I can't use on audioblog- and I really need Martha and the Vandella's doong "Nowhere to run" today. So I came here last to enjoy your vacation. Thanks!

you're on vacation and you're apologizing to us about a lack of postings?! dude, relax, enjoy... worry about sand in places sand shouldn't be and not about us... we'll be here when you get back. =)

What's with everyone being on vacation and mine doesn't start until next week? This is so not fair. :)
