It Is Time: The Rest of the Story

So, a while back I told you all about the vacation we took with the fam to the coast. It was such an amazing few days; filled with sun and sand (in all the wrong places, haha) and good food and family and relaxation. But behind the scenes there was another story to be told, and this is what I will tell you today.

As the date of our trip got closer I realized that it would completely coincide with my, um, lady time (sorry family - you might want to skip this part). I was so dreading this - I mean the very idea of 3-4 days in a bathing suit while dealing with such a nuisance was completely unappealing. I inquired with my wonderful bbc mommas as to the best way to deal with things - without alerting the world to my dilemma, as I have never in my life had to mess with that during times of bathing suit wearing. After they all snickered and laughed at me in the privacy of their homes (I know you did) they all offered up wonderful advice and when the time came I felt I would be completely prepared to deal with it.

Of course, then my neighbor mentioned I might want to stay out of deep water for fear of attracting sharks! Ewwww! *ahem* anyway...

So we reached our destination and all the while enjoying the sun and sand and relaxation, in the back of my mind a dialogue was repeating "is it here yet?" over and over again. Every little twinge, every strange feeling made me want to run back to the condo and climb under the covers of my little bed. I just knew the warm sea water would fool me. I just knew I was going to be dealing with a mortifying moment. I was on edge the whole time. Physically, I was a bit achy, but other than that, just didn't feel like I had the normal energy I should have.

For some reason I was really tired. And even after 3 cups of coffee and a Dr. Pepper I still didn't have any spunk. Not that I am terribly "spunky" anyway, but I really was dragging more than usual.

So I guess by now you can tell where this is going. After waiting for the entire 3 days for this "thing" to happen - it didn't, and so on the last morning of our trip I needed answers.

We are all very excited. It was a great ending to the vacation.

Yay!! Woo Hoo!! I am so excited for you!! Congratulations!

On a side note, I had my second ever "lady time" at 13 and went to the beach... my own mother gave me the shark warning! Ugh! So, not only do I have to deal with tampons for the first time ever, but was made to feel like chum in the water. Fun times!
