Back from Vacation...a.k.a. Back to Reality

Taking off for over a week and half was delightfully exhausting. The quick summer break between semesters was well spent visiting family in various locations across the west. Between cousin sleepovers, movie marathons, and wii tournaments for the kids, girls night-out, guys night-out, staying up to the wee hours of the morning every night catching up with brother and sister-in-laws, Mother's Day with extended family, and my first girly Tea party, I think we had more fun than one should! And that was only the first half of our trip.

After visiting Mister's family, we headed to visit mine. We rock hounded for the first time, saw more wild baby colts than one could count on both hands and feet, and celebrated Jelly Beans 1st birthday. But to let all of you in on a little secret, there is nothing like sleeping in your own bed undisturbed for a full eight hours!!!

Breathing A Sigh of Relief

AH! Friday!

This week felt like a whole month was crammed into these last seven days. Since I can't curl up in a dark corner with a box of See's Chocolate, I declared today, Backward's Day, and started with Movie Night. I am exhausted and it is only 9:24 am. Good compromise, no? The kids are happy and I am able to catch up on my much needed reading. And by reading, I mean blogging. :D

Priorities, people, priorities!
