Sand, Sea, Shells and Single
The company I work for shuts down the week of the 4th of July. So every year, Mrs. Joe and I would take the kids to Cape Cod for vacation that week. Best part was that we would spend it with her mother and step-father who own a house there. They are there for the entire summer so they would look forward to us coming out so they could see the kids.
I assumed with everything going on with Mrs. Joe things would be different this year.
They are going to be but not exactly how I expected.
My in-laws are aware of what is going on with Mrs. Joe & I and they aren't too happy. Let's just say my in-laws have made their opinions known to Mrs. Joe and with that, Mrs. Joe has decided she is not going there for vacation this year.
After hearing this, my in-laws asked me if I wanted to come out with the kids for the week anyway. I figure it's not my kids fault that their parents are splitting up, why shouldn't they get the vacation they want with the people they want to be with. It will be helpful with my in-laws there. I won't have to do everything myself.
Besides its free. Well, maybe a case of Sam Adams but still worth it.
So I decided to take them up on the offer.
I plan on packing tomorrow and heading out on Tuesday. We will stay through the week and come home on the following Monday. That's another perk of having them live there, I don't have to come and go on the weekend with everbody else.
Weather permitting, we will hit the beach every day. Play some miniature golf a few times, eat way too much ice cream and watch the parade on Friday. The same as every year.
Except this year their mother will not be enjoying it with us...
...and that is her loss.
Hope everybody has a good holiday.
