Monday, June 6, 2011 the Numbers

Well, I'm sure you will all be just shocked to know that I've been on vacation.  Because I'm nothing if not super-crafty when it comes to letting people (and by "people" I mean "Internet creepers") know that I'm away from home. 

Or, perhaps a two-plus week silence could actually indicate that I'm away from home?

(On the other hand, it could also indicate that I'm too lazy to be a real blogger.)

We just got back from a family vacation to Eleuthera, one of the more remote islands in the Bahamas.  It. was. awesome.  Since Internet and phone service isn't great (and by "not great," I mean, "will cost you about a billion dollars per use"), I wasn't able to blog while I was away. 

(As if that would've happened anyway. Let's be honest.)

SO, here's our vacation, by the numbers:

Bahamian island with some of the prettiest beaches I've ever seen.: ONE

Number of episodes of American Idol watched at local restaurant Ship to Shore:  TWO

Previously watched episodes of American Idol by Sherri in life:  ZERO

Times John and I danced in a public restaurant:  SEVERAL

Number of restaurant patrons, other than our family, during said dancing:  ZERO  (thankfully)

Crazy van photos:  Approximately 42

Times Sherri finger-pointed and made weird faces during van photos:  TOO MANY

Books stored on my kindle prior to the trip:  About 37

John's level of unhappiness over the bill from amazon prior to the trip:  HIGH (there may not even be a number to describe it)

Scooter rides:  TWO

Bugs that flew in my MOUTH and STUNG ME during said scooter rides:  ONE (and it was one too many, thankyouverymuch)

Maxi-dresses worn (by me, not John.  Thank goodness):  MANY

It was a fantastic vacation.....despite missing AG like CRAZY.  And despite crying every night after skyping with her. And despite the fact that I get seasick if I even so much as float in the ocean, which basically prevents me from any and all water sports. 

By the way, did I mention what Eleuthera is known for?  Water sports. 

But there's always my kindle.  Right, John?
