Overdoing It

Monday night was part one of Camie's birthday party, over at her mom's house, with several girlfriends.  I came by Tuesday morning to get the four of them.  I discovered they had not slept that night... AT ALL.  Uh huh, I knew how this day was gonna go.  We headed over to pick up one more a Lisa's house, then off to WaterWorld.  We got to Lisa's, picked up her daughter, and as I'm getting ready to pack 5 girls and myself into my Focus, Lisa offers the use of her van for the day.  The 4 girls squeezed into my backseat yelled "thank you!", and we were off to WaterWorld.

WaterWorld was great.  The park wasn't very busy, and, although there were lines on the slides, they weren't too long.  Neither were the food lines.  Weather was very warm, and I forgot to use sunscreen.  This was my first real venture into the sun this summer, so you can imagine the results.  At least I kept my tank top on most of the day, so the sunburn is just on my face, arms, shoulders, and neck, not my entire torso!  At about 4pm I corralled the girls and said it's time to get going.  They all protested, lightly, that they weren't tired, and they could stay longer!  I said no, we've been here about 5 hours, and that's long enough.  So, off we went. 

By the time we pulled out onto Arden Way, at least of the girls was dead asleep in the van.  After I dropped off Lisa's daughter and returned her van, I put the girls back in my car and took off to take them home.  EVERY one of them was dead asleep by the time we got to the next light. 

Cameron got to bed last night around 6pm, and slept until 11am this morning.  17 hours.  Not tired, indeed.  LOL

I overdid the sun thing, and couldn't sleep at all last night.  Not to mention the fact that the owner of my bed needed it back, so I dismantled it.  She and her husband game by about 7pm and picked it up.  I need to go bed shopping now, but that's actually OK, cuz the cal-king-sized bed was actually too big for my room.  I want something a bit smaller so I have more space.

Vacation's going well, so far.  14 days left!
