Rain....Rain....Go Away!

What awful weather it is today! I woke up this morning to the pitter patter of rain outside my window, thunder rumbling in my chest and lightning. Ick. Couple that with the horrible night I had last night and it was like waking up on the wrong side of the bed, stepping on a mirror and breaking it as you hop out of bed, cutting your foot on the shards of glass, not having any band-aids in the house, getting blood on your new carpet and then going to make yourself a bowl of cereal, only to find that there is no milk. OK, maybe not that dramatic but you get the idea. It sucked.

I must have woken 3 or 4 times last night. My throat has been sore for 2 days now. My muscles ache and I feel exhausted. I think I fell asleep around 9 pm. I thought getting a super solid nights rest would benefit me. Instead, I tossed and turned, woke up several times and feel just as bad now as I did before I went to sleep. Crap!

 So, to today’s weather I say, “PISS OFF!” I feel horrible and you’re not helping.

Long Branch, NJ



Today, the family and I, along with some friends, took a drive down to Long Branch, NJ to catch some rays and waves at the beach. The trip down took far longer than it should have taken because either I am or my navigation is completely stupid. I think we share equal blame.



We did make it safely though. It was perfect weather aside from the strong breeze that was a little too chilly for my tastes. The water was frigid, so I didn't even attempt to get in beyond my ankles. My son, who's apparently made of steel, had no problem with the water temperature and was flapping around in it like a dolphin at play.

I got to play some bootleg horseshoes, toss the ol' pigskin around and showoff on my son's RipStik. We wrapped the day up with some Chipotle and it was back North to my humble abode.

I'm kinda salty now after discovering that I took all of my pics at 640 x 480 resolution. >:-(
