Time to play catch up

Okay, I need to apologize for the lack of updates. I know that my absence has caused sadness and withdrawal for almost none of you, and that's guilt that will stick with me for minutes, if not less.

But today I will play catch up. I will unleash a flurry of posts that will make your head spin. I will post until my fingers bleed and my brain starts smoking, or until I get bored with it and take a nap, whichever comes first.

The picture you see above is from my vacation. I've actually coined a new term for family vacations that I will introduce you to with my next post- Stay tuned. It's worth it.

We hit the beach for vacation, and I took the picture above while dangling from a parasail. It was great, if you've never done it I highly recommend it. There's nothing like strapping yourself to a boat with a piece of dental floss and hoping that the Kleenex thin sheet of cloth that's keeping you from plunging 600 feet to your death into a shark-infested ocean doesn't spring a death leak.

Honestly, the view was amazing, and it was quite peaceful, except for my amazingly beautiful southern wife screaming right into my ear. "Hold still, you're rocking us! Ahhhhhhhh! Hold STILLLLLLLL!!!!!!!"

Except for that, it was very peaceful. You should definitely try it.

I've heard both sides of the story and your wife tells me that your side of the story is not accurate. I don't know who to believe, but it is funnier they way you tell it :) don't tell her I said that!

I will admit I did suffer a little bit of withdrawal... not being able to read humorous blogs for most of last week; not getting any updates on how the vacation was going; not seeing any more paintings of Elvis. So I went home and burned my candles as I packed my stuff. The scent of pinacolada kept me going *sniff*
Hey, you didn't wear your glorious shirt while up there rocking the parasail, did you?

Sorry for the late reply. They didn't let me open my awesome new shirt (thanks for mailing it!) until we got back. I wore jeans and a long sleeve shirt while parasailing. No, I'm not kidding.

I'm proud to say I came back even paler than I left!
