It's just fabulous here and we keep discovering new places to put on the list to try out. The list is getting long but we've got plenty of time.
We spent 3 solid days at the beach earlier this week because the parking lot at the complex was being repaved and painted. That smell is horrendous so we would head to the beach by 9:00 a.m. and come home around 4:30 each day. Let me tell you how well we slept each night!! All that beach fresh air. We had some very serious riptides all week from some storms out at sea and unfortunately a couple people did drown in our area. The life guards and beach patrol had to rescue a few people right in front of us and they had literally hundreds of rescues this week. I can't believe how people pay no mind to the surf warnings.
I've finally gotten health insurance after 5 years. I will be seeing a specialist for my fibromyalgia in Sept. That was the earliest appointment I could get with one. Meanwhile, I had to break down and get my Lyrica filled for $80 / 30 day supply. I can't afford to pay that on a regular basis but until I get in to the specialist and try to get the free meds from Pfizer it's all I have. My leg pain is pretty bad and I have the feeling in all of my feet that they are being hit with live electricity. It's a pretty awful feeling so in about another week the Lyrica should start kicking in with that. It's made for nerve ending pain.
I have a big secret to share with you if you promise not to tell! I can't even put it on my Facebook page, but I can tell you here!

I just booked a vacation trip up to see my girls at the end of July. We're flying up for 6 days and taking them off on our own vacation. Not sure where to yet but it will be either the CT shore, Rhode Island shore or Cape Cod. I am so flippin' excited to be seeing them. The girls are excited too but 5 weeks to them is an eternity so they will get more excited the closer it gets. The best part is that I don't have to drive 21 hours to get there and the price I got for airfare was unbelievably cheap. The gas up one way would cost more than 2 round trip tickets. Can't beat that! And I really would suffer physically after driving 2 solid days like that one way. So I'm super excited and doing a chair dance here!
So that's where I've been and that's the scoop folks! I do miss you all and will pop in from time to time to visit your blogs. Please don't think I have forgotten you because I have not!
