I called my doctor this morning about my allergic reaction to the sun from taking prednisone. They told me to call the pharmacist because the doctor wouldn’t be able to get back to me until late this afternoon and Sarah and I wanted to go to the beach. The pharmacist said as long as I stayed under an umbrella I would be OK. So off to the beach we went.
It was very, very windy. We put up the umbrella and thought we would be OK with it because there were lots of umbrellas on the beach. Sarah went to the car to get something and the umbrella took off after her and hit me in the head. At the same time I caught it in my left hand preventing certain death for the people next to us if it had hit them just right.
Sarah came back and we she put it back in the sand. It came with these bags that you could fill with sand to weight it down. We didn’t have all that much sand in them so we put lots of sand and the umbrella held itself against the wind.
Meanwhile, I wore my new pink shirt I got as a volunteer at the festival. I proceeded to spill coffee on it. Sarah warned me not to wear it. Oh, she knows me so well. I opened a bottle of water and tried cleaning it with a wet paper towel. Then I lost the cover to the water.
We finally settled down and I started reading “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Astronomy”. It’s fairly new and contains a lot of new info that I haven’t really kept up with in the past few years.
I videoed some couple eating sandwiches, sort of praying that a seagull would grab one and I’d have it on camera. Of course the seagulls weren’t cooperating and the couple ate in peace. What do the seagulls do, only steal sandwiches from my family? Sarah and I took no chances and ate in the car.
Then this happened:
So I refused to leave the beach and had to cover up. That’s Sarah’s dress wrapped around my arms. When the umbrella took off for the second time it hit a woman but fortunately didn’t hurt her.
Then we went to look at clothes at Real Bodies.
I love their clothes and now they actually fit. We found an outfit for me to attend a wedding reception for a friend of Sarah’s on the 23rd. It was $200. This is a casual reception and we weren’t about to spend that kind of money for an outfit that won’t fit me in a few months. So we are going to put the money toward our mother and daughter tattoos instead.
Then we saw the largest boat ever pulling into the harbor. It was called Miss Rose. It was 130 feet long. You can see the inside of the yacht here. A woman sat next to me and talked during my whole video. Sarah was around so I had to be nice to her. I would have been nice anyway because I don’t think she realized I was making a video. Oh, by the way, if you are interested in renting this yacht it costs $185,056.02 a week for 10 people. I wonder how much fuel costs to run that thing?
Then we went to my sister’s house for an hour and talked about scary movies we’ve seen. My cold is mostly gone except for a raspy voice. Damon is feeling better. He is planning to move to Foley Beach with Anna in South Carolina. But his plans can change on a dime so we will just wait and see.
I really enjoy my Mondays with Sarah.
