Hello from unsunny Florida! I was hoping for some dramatic hurricane pictures, but Fay passed us by and headed inland. It didn’t even rain on Tuesday. I was disappointed – I didn’t want an all-out hurricane, but I was totally ready for some big weather. Schools were cancelled, my brother-in-law (a chiropractor) had to cancel office hours, and what happened? Nothing. By yesterday we started to experience rain and wind. Today is just plain rainy.
I am having a good time with my family. Mom and Dad and I played board games yesterday like old times – lots of fun and for once, I won several times! We went to the beach yesterday for lunch. The water was very choppy and there were big piles of seaweed everywhere – courtesy of Fay, my sister tells me. Today, my sister and brother-in-law took off for Chicago and I am in charge of the kids. First assignment: drive nephew to school. Mission accomplished. I will also pick him up, bring him home, feed him, drive him to swimming practice, wait while he swims many, many lengths of the pool, bring him home, make sure he eats, etc. I am also spending time with the other favorite dog in my life, my sister’s golden retreiver, Max. Love him.
For now, I must go and take care of Auntly duties. I will fly home Monday. More later
