Hello Friends,

Ive been popping my head in now and then.. where is everyone??

Is it me? Am I the only one here who is missing the warm weather ALREADY?? How spoiled have I gotten?? My Friday nights have turned into hot chocolate and a movie.. Oh how I yearn to pack up that cooler, load up the durango and head to the beach for the sunset.. The little one could dig in the sand and jump in the waves while my hubby and I throw back some cold ones watching the sun go down..Hey, maybe even throw a pole into the water when no one is watching.. Ooo and maybe dolphins!

Am I completely insane? Do I have an addiction? is their a group for that?? Someone please tell me Im not the only one who is counting down the months..

I'm hearing You! This is Florida for crying out loud, I signed up for warm weather and cold cocktails at the beach, not 30 degree nights where I have to run out in the cold to cover up all my new plants,everynight for a week it seems!! That's Bull-s%*t! Somebody please turn the heat back on, and let me know when it's safe to take off my 3 extra layers of clothing!

I've read that one can actually become addicted to tanning. An old coworker of mine used to go to the tanning booths in the winter to get her fix. She had skin like an alligator.

Even if you're not hooked on tanning, there's something very soothing about being at the beach. The salt air, the sound of the waves, the sound of the gulls. Needless to say, you're also in super-relaxed mode while you're there. It's very therapeutic.

Agreed, except now I'm the person who I used to make fun of- the one under an 80 spf ginormus rainbow beach umbrella with a floppy hat & sunscreen No alligator skin for me please! But my mom is like that. She has been going to tanning beds for years. She is 63 & her skin just looks awful. I got on to her years ago & she started covering her face- baby steps..

That is one thing I wish tourists would be careful about. It's like a contest to see who can go out the first day & completely singe their epidermis. Some look so painful, I want to cry! Yes, the beach is a great place but you can enjoy taking it all in from a shady spot too.

Waaay back in college, I used to manage a sun tanning salon (1981...), I had people coming back from FL to MI begging to get into a both, bed, you name it...now, these were "tan addicts".

Carry on....
