Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Until next year.

Another week down the shore has come and gone.

We did all the usual things: hung out at the beach, took the kids on the rides, ran on the boardwalk, ate ice cream at the "train place," had dinner with the entire extended family, went crabbing, rented bikes and road them on the boardwalk, went fishing, had a night out with my husband, stole coffee from my parents' house next door, played arcade games, hung out with my friend Lanette and her son, built some sandcastles, played miniature golf, visited with my grandparents, and had lots of help with the kids from my parents, sister and niece.

We did all that, and yet still, I feel like the week just flew, and we didn't really do anything.

I think it's because this time I didn't really get to do any shopping. And come on, what's a vacation without bringing home a couple new outfits, a few pairs of shoes and cool pieces of jewelry?

Hopefully you can stay an extra week next year. Seems like trying to fit our visits and fun time into one week is not always as relaxing as it could be. Like I say............SLOW DOWN, you are at the SHORE. Can't wait to be with you again, maybe for a long week end in Minnesota before the snow arrives. Mom

Perhaps there is some consolation that you were at the shore longer than I was this year - I haven't even GONE, except to help a friend move and then I didn't get to the beach. And I LIVE HERE!! Sorry I missed you guys!
