Weekend at the Beach House...

Marilyn got off work early and we were on the road before 2:30 p.m. to come to Seaside, Oregon and spend time at our beach house.

Our cats, Colin and Henry, were WONDERFUL on the way here! Maybe the best ever.

It was a lovely, SUNNY drive, believe it or not -- all the way here, even though we'd heard it might be socked in when we got here. Not so! It may be the last sunny day of the three-day weekend, but that's okay.

Jeff texted us when he and his family hit the road in their RV. They're going to be in Canon Beach, Oregon, staying in an RV Park this weekend -- and he wants to get by to see our house for the first time.

That's a bit more complicated than it sounds, though. They are a family of five (Jeff, Alicia and the three girls) -- and they don't have a car with them! Our car comfortably seats four -- five in a pinch. But the five of them, plus the two of us, is seven -- and that's not happening. So we're not sure HOW that's going to work out...

Canon Beach isn't that far away from here, but still...

Even if I stay here at the house and Marilyn goes after them alone, it's not going to be easy to get them all here. Then we probably couldn't go have a meal together, as we'd hoped.

This will work if the girls stay behind and it's just Jeff and Alicia -- which probably makes sense, actually. But Jeff kind of made me believe last week that it would be all of them, so...

I guess we'll see how it goes.

For the record, I hate the new Update page at LiveJournal!!!!!!!!!!!

I hate the fact that it's so wide. I hate the FONT (hard to read). I hate the layout entirely. I hate that we've lost the dropdown feature for icons and have to use the dumbassed selection window -- not too cool when you have as many icons as I do, frankly!!!!! (It made a lot more sense to be looking at an alphabetical list of my keywords than the actual images. What the hell is the LiveJournal Admin thinking???????) I suppose there's little point in complaining, because they don't really care what their users think. It's highly annoying!

Well, on that note, I'm off to bed soon...
