This was the first time I swam out to the raft. It's not so far that I should really be throwing my arms up triumphantly like that, but I am kind of out of shape and was happy I made it and could still breathe.
Ok. Let me explain.
First of all, I was secretly on vacation all last week (up at the cabin - can't afford to go anywhere else, haha!). I say secretly because I pre-wrote and scheduled posts ahead of time to appear while I was gone. I try to be careful about posting on my blog, or Facebook or Twitter or whatever when we're going to be away, or the Husband is going to be away, or whatever for safety reasons... I'm sure like me you've heard those stories where someone posts that they're going on vacation or whatever and they come home to find their house has been robbed. Last week one of my new neighbors at the lake told me a story about a teenage friend of their daughter - the teen posted that her parents left her alone for the weekend, and she invited a few friends over for a "party" by posting on their Facebook walls. Well a bunch of other kids saw it, and a friend told a friend who told a friend...and about 50 kids showed up at the girl's house for a "party" and they trashed the place. The girl ended up calling the police on her own party because she couldn't get them to leave and she didn't even know half the kids! Anyway, the point is, I was away all last week, and of course I have lots of pics and stuff to share.
Secondly, I go to write this post today, and the Blogger interface that I use to write this blog has completely changed! They didn't just tweak this or that - the whole thing looks totally different! Thought I took a wrong turn on the internet or something... I didn't even take the time to look around, but for all I know I can post things to Saturn now and there's a talking spanish dictionary - who knows, I have to check it all out later. As it was it took me a minute to figure out how to even start this post! Luckily I have coffee. I think my brain is still on "Adirondack time".
Speaking of my brain, I must be off my noodle to post a picture of me in my bathing suit for all the world to see.
