This morning Cari and I got up bright and early to drop off all of the kiddos with her former sister-in-law for the day. She seemed surprised to see my three, but I am sure she ended up enjoying them, everyone does. Cari and I have tans to attend to!
This summer Mitch is staying at the beach condo he usually rents out for the summer and he has the big cottage that was Karen’s pride and joy rented out to a group of young people for the whole summer. Cari found these kids through her volunteer work at the local soup kitchen and they are doing what is known as a “share”. I have no idea what that means, but I am sure they will take wonderful care of Karen’s dream home.
Mitch was already outside on the hammock when we got there. He had mixed up a big batch of vodka and diet tonics for us and we had a wonderful morning frolicking in the surf. I was so glad I didn’t have to keep track of my littles all day. They are forever wandering away and forgetting to remind me to reapply sunscreen, so the beach is just better without children.
After lunch, Mitch and Cari went for a romantic walk and I lay down on the hammock for a little snooze. When I woke up who should I see but our newly engaged lovebirds. They were walking down the beach towards me, but I guess they didn’t see me because they headed back the other way after I waved them over. I must say that the body language between them was not good at all. Renata was leaning towards Ty, but he was leaning away and had his body turned from her too. There must be trouble in paradise already.
I really wanted to talk to Ty, but I hadn’t seen him at all since the engagement announcement. I guess he was trying to enjoy a lil’ beach vacay and got stuck with the old ball and chain, poor guy.
