Unexpected Worries

Here's another item to add to the list of things I never imagined I'd worry about:

"Oh no, the cleaning ladies are coming today and the house isn't dirty at all! They won't have anything to do! "

"Maybe we can do a rain dance to track some dirt in for them to mop up..."

Pro Tip

Want your blush to smell like blush when you get home from vacation?

Try storing is somewhere other than in your makeup bag full of freshly gleaned seashells! This will keep your makeup smelling like makeup and your seashells smelling like disgusting rotting fish, like they should.

Another day, another island

Nantucket is just as sweet and 1920's as I've ever imagined it to be. Our bikes have baskets on them (wicker baskets!) and they get us across the island in a leisurely half hour. There's sandy paths through the beach grass to get to the water, and the waves are satisfactorily pummel-y on my torso. It is, again, quite chilly here, and I begin to wonder why anyone lives anywhere else than on an island during the summer. Why be hot? Why be sweaty and gross in the desert when you can be cool and charming in Nantucket? Just move here for the summer, stay in a cute hostel or maybe rent a home for a few months, and work remotely. We have computers that connect to each other anywhere we want to! Why do we not take advantage of this more often?
