What Did You Expect?

I must apologize for not being around much. I've been living it up in Florida. Did you expect me to sit on my computer all day indoors or even myLot from work, which I wouldn't do, even if I did work! This weekend was exceptionally busy, even for me. I've been walking, golfing, playing tennis, shopping, going out for brunch, lunch, and dinners with my sweet husband and different groups of friends, and to top it all off, did two new things. We have a friend of a friend, who took a small group of us on his yacht for a ride on the ocean. Cocktails, nibbles, sun, and fun! Another friend of a friend's nephew took us out in his speedboat yesterday. I tried water skiing in the ocean for the first time ever. I tried about 20 times, and only managed to stay up for a total of 3 minutes. . There were shark and riptide flags up, so that frightened me every time I flopped in the water. Did I miss much on myLot over the weekend? ~ Photo is another yacht in my backyard

somehow i can't imagine the glamorous dianne flopping in the water... but trying 20 times means you're really determined to nail it! how fast does the speedboat go?

It went too fast for me! I have no idea how fast the boat went, but I'm sure it was a reasonable speed. I'm just a klutz on the water. I looked like a drowned rat immediately and the wake of the boat, mixed with the waves of the ocean, were not my cup of tea.

I haven't been here much myself, so don't know if we missed much. Glad you had a fun weekend. I tried water skiing from my boss's boat on the French Riviera when I was young - it's not easy

Apparently, I haven't missed a thing. No, it's not easy, but my granddaughter has been doing it since she started camp. I wonder it it's easier on a lake? lol

@DianneN Yes, a lake would probably be easier - a more unruffled surface.

We missed you and I'm always happy to hear about your adventures there in Florida. I always wanted to learn to water ski but certainly not in waters with sharks

That's why I haven't seen you post a discussion recently. But of course I don't really expect you to post every single day as I don't do that either. Life outside of mylot can be really more exciting, going somewhere, meeting new people, and all the other activities that are fun to do. I will be away from mylot too but only for two to three days maybe. I will be on a business trip again tomorrow, the 28th of February and will be back home on March 2nd. Me and my friend, business partner will surely be shopping as well which we always do while away on a business trip.

You make me love the fact that once I can take care of things here I have the possibility of getting back to my homeland the US and living in an apartment in my best friends from the 7th-grade house which is in Florida. You know you make it sound like a lot of fun. I don't even care if at times it will get very hot because we are now in the deep freeze here and I cannot wait for things to warm up. Hope you enjoy yourself this week.
