Things I Learned on Vacation

  • My family loves and accepts me for who I am, as I am, regardless of my situation.
  • I can't make everyone happy and I need to stop trying.
  • K's family is just as screwed up as I think they are, maybe more.
  • I miss T when I am separated from him
  • Sunscreen is NOT just for kids and wimps
  • Nothing is more satisfying than seeing your 6 year old daughter ride a wave 50 feet on a boogie board, then stand up, raise both hands over her head and yell, "woo hoo!  I did it!"
  • I like the beach a lot more than I thought I did.
  • A beach facing the open ocean is a lot more fun than a beach in a protected cove.
  • If you try to dig a clam out of the sand with your bare hands, you might get bit.
  • Being K's best friend is a lot more fun than trying to pretend to be her husband
  • Four kids in a minivan is not fun for very long.
  • No matter how much I like visiting my family or being on vacation, it's really good to go home.
  • Getting a divorce from K will not separate me from my crazy in-laws.
  • I am starting to like being gay
  • I enjoyed taking to my brother-in-law about my boyfriend.
  • I enjoyed talking to my parents about my boyfriend.
  • I can eat 4 lobsters in one sitting.
  • Once you accept that you are going to get sand into everything and there is nothing you can do about it, leaving the beach at the end of the day is less stressful.
  • Sometimes a Speedo is unattractive, even on a thin guy
  • Hydro-cortisone cream and baby lotion is a good treatment for sunburn
  • I prefer regular Oreo's over the "double stufft" kind.
  • On land, sea lions can support all their weight on their flippers.  Seals can't.
  • Watching your kids pet sting rays is pretty cool.
  • No matter how much fun vacation is, it is always nice to come home and sleep in your own bed.

4 kids in a minivan... oh, yeah! Not something I want to do for very long.

You like being gay! That's SO cool! Did you ever think you'd get to this point?

4 lobsters is a lot of lobster. I'm jealous!

I like this list. Glad you had a good time. Welcome home. :)

Sorry about the sunburn. I can't stand those.

Mmm, Oreo's. I haven't had one of those in years. Time to go to the store...
