From the phone

I’m writing this post on my mobile phone while nursing.

Tip, tap, tip, tap go my thumbs against the mobile keyboard.

We are on vacay at a family oasis, filled with towering oak trees, a clear, blue pool, hot coffee in the morning – and piña coladas in the afternoon. There are aunts and uncles, cousins and babies. Card games at the big table – and toddlers on a big blanket.

We are spending our days in swimsuits – and our nights singing karaoke. It is a Memorial Day weekend spent creating memories.

So I am foregoing the lap top for a couple of days – and instead, focusing on what’s before me:

Family, food, love, (the occasional whining from both the kids and the adults), sandwiches by the pool, and a game of horseshoes by the trees.

This is the good stuff.
