My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have ...

I am sure you will have an amazing time!

My friends all laughed at me when I said I was coming down here in the summer. But you're right, the weather is fabulous in the summer. I love the rain at night so when you get up in the morning everything is green sparkling. And the water...omg....it is gorgeous.

I had wondered about jellyfish. So far I haven't had any run-ins, but I'll definitely be on the lookout!

We have had the conversation about keeping our own individual interests yes for sure - I guess I was so busy trying to help him and please him that I lost the balance and felt like it was getting to be too much. I also talked to him about his 'downer' mood and explained that while I understand he is frustrated with some things (he complains about his job all the time and silly things) - I can't be the one to always 'lift' him up as I have worked hard to become a positive person. I do that for my kids in terms of 'perking' them up but don't want another person to have to constantly 'keep happy' or cheer up. It's draining.

Yes I need to do the pros/cons list and right now the pros definitely outweigh the cons... I need to not be such a Virgo lol - perfectionist.
