Proving that I can write anywhere with my laptop, I am seated at the tiki bar behind the house we are renting on the Outer Banks tapping out this note on Thursday afternoon. As we rent this house in December and March or April, we never put the tiki bar to use, but in my determination to be outside as much as possible, this works as a spot to write because there is no sun glare. It's been a fun week here so far. My younger son brought one of his friends, Josh --- the one we call Son 2A --- and they have been having a blast playing golf with my husband and hanging out. Basically they move between the game room and their bedroom and emerge for meals. They are both big readers, and thus there is a fair stash of books between them, and Josh has been reading a manga series online. I took them to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid the other day, which I loved. They enjoyed it, but prefer the books. Loved hearing that!
