Water falls. Sun rays. Fun swells.
My kids are enjoying the first day of summer break at a water park with friends and their dad.
I couldn’t go.
Not because I wanted to stay home and feel sorry for myself. I’m just really FAIL at outdoor functions like these.
My medications make me hyper-sensitive to the sun. I can’t go on any ride, obviously. I would spend most of my time waiting them for them to wait in line. Having chlorine in my eye that I just had surgery on isn’t an attractive thought. I have issues in the water with my weak side.
They went without me.
I ached to be able to go with them.
Not like this. I wanted to go down slides with them. I wanted to float in tubes with them. I wanted to body surf the waves.
So, I didn’t really regret not being able to go today. I wasn’t missing much and the kids could freely enjoy themselves.
Ahhh, but I do miss wave pools.
