I'm packing up to go to the beach.
It's a bit earlier than in recent years. We had just about sworn off going before the end of June. Seaweed, sandfleas, mosquitos... But this year one of us is preggers. She's 6 months right now. It's a good time to go. None of us (much less her) want to take an 8 months pregnant person to the beach in Texas in August...
I haven't had much anticipation this year... or maybe it's just that I've been too busy and had too many people in my house this entire month. *shrug* I am looking forward to it right now. Now that it's tomorrow. Ha.
This time tomorrow I'll be salty, sandy, and drunk. And in the company of women. Only women.
I have been feeling entirely too testosteronized of late.... what with my brother, my dad, and my older son taking turns staying with me, my husband, and my other son. That's a 5 to 1 man to woman ratio. I'm the one woman. It will be good to be a girl again.
Anyway, I'll be gone 4 days and 3 nights. Packed so far:
Bathing suits 1 & 2
2 pair shorts
2 hippie skirts
1 leopard-print shorter skirt for the one night out at Sharkey's
A cloth belt came with the skirt. I'm thinking I might do my hair up and tie it 'round instead.
1-2-3-4-5-6... 7... 8... ? tops. Mostly tanks. A couple thin tees. All the clothes are Mix n match, according to my mood.
6 pair panties
4 pair shoes- 3 flippies and one flat sandals. Different colors for the different mix n match outfits. Oh yes and the jeweled black stack flippies. For the going out night.
1 night shirt
1 pink jersey pajama set. Ugly but boughten at the big sale. I'm sure I paid $3 or some shit for them. They are comfy...
a variety of baubles to go with the mix n match outfits
large beach mug
3 magazines (More, OK, and HomePlans)
sunscreen-face and regular
liquid soap, face soap
body spray, hairspray
hair brush, toothbrush
pre- and post-brushing mouth rinse
cocoa butter lotion for at the end of the day
Camera, extra batteries for it
charger for my phone
roast beef slices
jalepeno & queso potato chips
(other food will be provided)
5 bottles wine, 1 quart Tito's Handmade Vodka
Did I forget anything? Do you think I can live off this stuff for 4 days????
