Things I learned on my vacation

I learned several things the past two weeks. First, even though my boys are grown and can take care of themselves, I miss them terribly while I’m gone. Second, even though I’m grown and can take care of myself, I miss my parents when I’m not in the same town.

Other things I learned that aren’t quite as important – I never stamp as much as I think I’m going to on vacation. I really do need a laptop, iPhone and tablet. Best Buy employees here aren’t even close to helpful. And the sea turtles do lay eggs on our beach.

The sea turtle nest was a shock. There’s a sign every year telling residents to turn off outside lights and close curtains at night so the lights don’t scare away the sea turtles. I’ve never seen any – or their nests, so I thought they were just fooling around. (The condo management, not the turtles.) Nope. There was a nest this year. It would have been very cool to see the eggs hatch, but, sadly, that didn’t happen while we were here. But it was still fun to see the nest.

So now we’re back to real life. We’re heading home today and tomorrow, and then I guess we’ll hit the ground running on Monday.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful weekend.
