Case in point: I've had a really crappy summer. A bed bug invasion, some scary health issues and now I'm in the middle of a renovation project. Enter one of these fantastic friends who graciously offered us her house in Montauk for a few days this week for free. SWEET!!!
I love Montauk. Being from Long Island, we were here at least once a year so it has many fond memories.
20 minutes of the back and forth and I've decided -- beach and lighthouse today, biking tomorrow. Then another 10 minutes of gloating (Jordan), sulking (Aidan) and guilty feelings (Mom).
As I'm writing this the following scene ensued:
Aidan: [sigh] I'm just going to stay here while you go two go to the beach.
Me: No you're not
Jordan: If he gets to stay here, I get to stay here
Me: KNOCK IT OFF BOTH OF YOU! WE'RE ALL GOING TO THE BEACH TO HAVE FUN
Jordan: You don't have to be so mean about it.
