Just because. Well, because I'm in San Antonio edumacating my home schooled children about hubris whose name is Santa Ana. It's beautiful here. Hot and sunny enough to thoroughly roast ourselves at SeaWorld. Why not? It's spring break and spring break isn't complete without the requisite sunburn. Just remember the Alamo. Never mind.

I'm irritated at the moment because the public access WiFi sucks and I refuse to pay $20 to have DSL. When you pay for a hotel room, internet access should be included. Period. So sayeth Melissa. So let it be written. Because I'm a cheap-ass and I am married to a cheaper ass, I'm sitting on the porch rotating in my chair pointing my computer toward what seems like a better signal. It keeps blanking out on me. Just plain frustrating.
There has been more talk about how home schooled children are weird and dumb. That presupposes that public school educated children are normal and intelligent. I went to public school my whole life and if you did, too, you know darn well that that is hardly the truth. Right now, public school kids are getting zippo done because it's the last day before spring break. So whatever. There's pros and cons to both. Can't we all just get along?
Wow, some lady is braving the out door pool. What is it about going on vacation that makes a person think that a seventy degree pool here is warmer than a seventy degree pool at home? Interesting phenomena, that. Now some old dude is getting in with no squeal of discontent. Hmmm... maybe it's warmer than I think. He seems comfortable and he has no body fat. Shall we mess up the quiet happy people's day and bring our urchins down? I think we shall. Snort. What is it with people? Were they never children? Did they magically explode into tight-assed adulthood?
Going through the lobby, I received bemused looks as I had the three in tow. There is talk that the world is this child-centric kid love-fest, but I don't see evidence of it. I do see evidence of mirthless scorn.
Anyway, off to be with the family. Watching the lovebirds in the pool and generally enjoying NOT being at home. Someone is going to make my bed tomorrow!
