15…

That’s how many days until I get on a plane and start the long journey home…

I’m so excited!!!

I’m so sad….

I cannot WAIT to see my Peanut! Her sweet smile and giggles are like Sunshine, and I feel light deprived…I miss laughing with her Mommy, who has the most wicked sense of humor!

I long for evenings spent watching a favorite TV show with my Hubs, laughing, talking, just being together…I miss him like an amputee misses their limb, part of me is removed…

And as much as I miss them, I will miss my Eldest and her Son when I go home. Knowing it will be months and months (like 12) in between visits breaks my heart. My Grandson won’t know His Gram and Poppa the way his cousin does. Every year we’ll wait patiently while becoming familiar to him all over again…

I kinda feel like a Pushmi-Pullyu.

*Sigh*

Anyhoo, here’s what we’ve done lately….

I do love Gab Gab beach at sunset….

🙂

Never go into the ocean at night…

The other night while Cap’t America was teaching his martial arts/kung fooey/try to whack each other with pointy sticks class Chef Vivi and I decided to head to the beach to enjoy the sunset…

It’ll be fun, we said…sitting in the warm waters of the gentle surf enjoying a gorgeous sunset over the water, it’ll be so relaxing we said….

And then SOMETHING TRIED TO EAT US.

There we are, 9.9999 month preggo Hotel Mommy and middle aged super “fluffy” Grammy, lounging on the sand with the waves lapping at our feet when we hear a splash and then see something large and dark breaching the water a mere 20-30 feet away from us and headed our direction at a speedy pace. Thwap, thwap, thwap, in a rock skipping across the surface of a pond fashion….

I can promise you, you’ve never seen crabs scuttling across the sand as fast as the 2 of us did! Once we had scrambled to safety, we simultaneously exclaimed “WTF WAS THAT???” and then burst out laughing at the picture we must have made had anyone been around to witness our hasty retreat from the water!

We watched (from a safe distance) and caught a couple glances of the creature surfacing here and there, always very close to the shoreline, but as it was almost full dark by this time we could never see it well enough to identify it. It was large, it appeared dark and it had no dorsal fins or a tail fluke that we saw…. We did however name it Nessy, the Loch Gab Gab Monster….

Of course me being me, I came home and immediately Googled “Sea Creatures of Gab Gab Beach Guam” and several variations thereof. I got no answers that fit the bill….

It will I suppose, remain a mystery but it reaffirms what I’ve said repeatedly throughout my life: One should never go into the ocean. EVER.

The sunset was glorious though…

I swear I heard that “Jaws” music playing in the background…
