I honestly panicked for a moment. Some of my first thoughts were, "What if I need someone at home? What if I'm needed?" (I'm responsible for our youth program at church) I also enjoy checking in on Twitter friends throughout the day and I wondered what it would be like if a week passed without checking. Would I be forgotten, would I forget who I enjoyed talking to? Yea, pretty petty thoughts. But my biggest legit concern was, "What if some horrific world calamity took place while we are here and I have no way of calling for help?" That's a legit concern, right? I have four children, three of which aren't good swimmers, and we are by the ocean, what if something happened? (Have I ever mentioned that I am a worry wort?) I enjoy the comfort of knowing that if anything happened, I could call 911 and have help within minutes.
Luckily, after we got unpacked and I went out on the beach in front of our temporary home, away from the big hill behind the house, I found 5 bars and 3G. I was comforted to know that if I needed anything, anything at all, I just needed to run out to the ocean and dial away. :oD
We had a wonderful time with family and the sun, now it's time to get back into the swing of things. A brand new year of home schooling starts tomorrow and life is about to merge into the fast lane.
Here is a view from our house:

I was on vacation from EVERYTHING!!)
