GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN....


My husband does it......my 3 year old does it........WHY DON'T I ????
Monday morning, after yet another long weekend at the beach, I came to a conclusion. I play with my girl in the water ALOT.....watch other girls/ladies (even older than myself) grab a board & head out. They are constantly making comments..."When are you gonna come out there ??" Before it was...."I have a baby, blah, blah " ENOUGH!!! On the weekends, my husband gives surf lessons/ canoe rides and Sunday from the moment he got there 8am to 5pm HE WAS NONE STOP!!! I BEGGED him to eat lunch (even bought it) he was too busy. AND THAT'S GOOD.....HE LOVES IT!!! But I realized I'm ALWAYS WATCHING everyone have all the fun. Monday, my husband took me to our friends surf shop & said "Pick out a board". My heart was pounding, as though I was already in the water waiting for the right wave.....
I have a hard time spending "BIG money". he knows that. " I want the USED one, please don't talk me out of it". So folks, I am now the owner of a surfboard. 14 years in Hawaii and this is MY FIRST! always had plenty to use...Got racks for my car. I go through this "buyers remorse"....my face gets flush....hot flashes...."what am I doing?" I am 4#&^#% years old!!! who am I???? Then it dawns on me...age is JUST A NUMBER , it's not to hinder you because you "should have" done that when I was young.....I AM YOUNG!!!! I will no longer sit around the beach watching everyone else have fun....I will START THE FUN!!! ( as the Beachboys play over & over in my head , I am 16 again )
