Off to the Beach!

Tomorrow morning we are off to open our beach house in Bay Head, New Jersey...can't wait!!

The girls are excited to pack up their beach stuff and set up house down there....dolls, books, art supplies and easel, bikes and helmets, more books. They are also prepared to launch into their second successful season of "She Sells Seashells Down By the Seashore" in which they paint seashells and sell them in front of our house for 25 cents each. Last year, they put away over $150 in college funds!!

We'll arrive in time for the first Central Market Sub of the season, meet with a painter about repainting our porch (best to do the floor when there's no one around to walk on it), then check out the beach. We're having dinner at The Shipwreck Grill in Brielle, NJ, on Saturday night.

Thanks to the excellent job Comcast is doing for us in Bay Head (ma'am, I understand that you purchased your modem at Circuit City and that you've faxed us the receipt for your owned modem over and over again, but if you're unwilling to pay our $3 monthly modem rental for your owned modem, you're going to have to return your Circuit City modem that you own free and clear to the Comcast central office in Brick before we'll turn your service back on), we have no cable TV or Internet access at our beach house.

However, I will commit to posting regularly over on my Bay Head Blog now that the beach house is open!! Hooray!!

I say, you should invite us all, and we'll paint your beach house for free, for having us over to enjoy your beach house. Just kidding. It sounds like having your very own paradise by the beach. Enjoy your trip with your girls.

Sounds like you have a great summer all planned out. I'm jealous, getting to spend so much time at the beach. I'm going to Bethany Beach in Delaware for a week in August...Until then, I guess I'll just have to "suffer" with the pool in my backyard. Have fun in Bay Head!

What do you mean, just kidding??!!
If each of you brings a six-pack of microbrews and a paintbrush, the job will be done in no time!
