Work and Play

Tuesday we expected to go to St. Pete to help with the children because Dad was out of town, but Michelle said she could handle them, but could we come Wednesday?

We arrived around noon, and she had decided to take them to Universal even with the threat of rain.  We would stay at the house, babysitting Henry and cleaning.  Gary didn't work very hard at all, so that meant I would hardly be able to move the next day.  But it really looked great when she arrived back home at 9:30.  It did rain hard, so they went to the movies as well as the park.

Anyhow, we finally got home at 10:15 and stayed awake to hear our son, Tristan, interview with BlogRadio at 11 pm.  That was fun.  It was a call in show, and Gary was tempted to call and ask when Tristan was planning to cut the grass (a childhood chore at our home, and standing joke). 

Last night we got some good thunderstorms that came in from the coast, and they will continue today on and off.  Our big plans are to rest and do our wash.  I took an hour to clean our entire 'house' on Tuesday.  

Thursday we had to go back to St. Pete to return Michelle's credit card that we used to pick up stuff for Henry on Wed. night.  Once again, it rained on the bridge, but it was good to see the kids to kiss them goodbye.  If we leave here on the 18th, we won't see them again.  So, just in case, we said our goodbyes. 

Today was a do-whatever day - I love those days.   A whole day to do whatever you want and our fun included soup at Panera (Gary sniffed the bagels as he's not allowed one yet) and then browsing at Barnes and Noble's.  Gary's been looking for a new cap as his Margaritaville one has just about fallen apart.  Edwin Watt's Golf Store was next door to B&N, so we popped in there.  Way back in the corner he found the hat he has been looking for.  Here is my honey sporting his new cap:

ready for the course
We stopped for ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery (it's on Gary's diet - not mine) and the girls behind the counter gave us and another couple a singing debut.  They were so cute singing R-E-S-P-E-C-T from behind the counter.  We gave them a big tip.

Storms are again in the area and it is pitch black out there (it's only 7 pm), with lots of thunder, but no rain just yet.  One thing we all hate in our lifestyle is hail, right? 

Anyhow, it's coming for us, so I'm going to sign off now before we lose power or something.  Yikes, lightning really close.  goood byyyeee!
