When I woke up on Monday morning I had grand plans to come home after work and compose a post about the rest of our trip to the beach with photographs and an accompanying poem.
And then I got to the office and realized that it was the last day of open enrollment and all of my insurance forms were due by 4:30. I thought about my options all morning and finally sent my dad an email at 1:00 with the subject line "insurance stuff - i am so confused" because OH MY WORD at all of the choices. He responded with a detailed email about what he recommended and ended it with a paragraph about insurance being one of those tough decisions you just have to make as an adult. Judging by the fact that I got a serious case of the giggles when I read the section in the brochure about how much you get paid per lost toe, I have my doubts about how well I fit into the adult category.
When I finally settled on what coverage I wanted, I had to complete all sorts of math equations that about sent me over the edge and reminded me why I am a paralegal and not a mathematician. When I came home on Monday night the last thing I wanted to do was compose couplets and rhymes about the beach.
Tuesday night rolled around and I went to visit my cousin's new kitten and made a trip to Target because I was out of some necessities like trail mix and purple nail polish.
And Wednesday. Oh, Wednesday. It was one of those days when I think SOMETIMES THIS JOB IS REALLY HARD. And so last night I got a manicure with Michelle and and then caught up on some Lifetime tv.
Which brings us to today, and I'll be honest, the cute little rhymes that I had in my head on Monday about the beach and the dolphins are history. And so, here are some rhyme-free photos of our trip to Cape May, New Jersey. We stayed at the Summer Cottage Inn, and if you're planning a trip, you should stay there.
They serve cheese pudding for breakfast.
I don't think I need to say anything more.
