Home Sweet Home

The big summer 2013 vacation is over.  It's bittersweet.  I loved seeing my family, but man it's always great to be home.  

We were gone for a long 7 days.  

I just about cried when we got home last night after our 12 hr drive through Holiday traffic and torrential downpours.  All three kids were crying and we still had 3 hours to go.  


If only this really worked.

I missed my bed, getting a good night's sleep, tall toilets, thermostats set at 72 degrees, sunshine, my bed, my laptop, reading blogs, watching my favorite TV shows, and my bed (did I mention that already?).  

I have the worst documentation of our vaca.  I forgot the camera and tried to stay unplugged as much as possible so my phone was left to fend for itself.  

Baby Girl did a bang up job on her first airplane flight despite the grouchy flight attendants.  Hey U.S. Air, you could use a little customer service refresher course!

I gained a total of 293 pounds.  No, seriously.  Houston, we have a problem.  Project get your booty back in shape for all the exciting stuff coming up in the next 12 months commences today! (I say this as I'm eating Twizzlers on the couch.)

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because now that the summer vaca is over, I have no more excuses to put off potty training.  I'm really dreading this.  Really badly.  Have I mentioned how strong-willed Baby Girl is and that she really doesn't have any desire to sit on the potty!?  I'll pay someone $1000 to potty train my child.  For realz.


  1. I hope that you had a great time with your fam! And don't worry about vacay pounds. They don't count at all and they will just melt away;)

  2. Please, next time I see you, make this noise "Ughabugha." Thank you ma'am! Glad you survived the vaca and drive.

  3. I already told you that I would GLADLY potty train bug, I just need more than one day!!! :)

  4. If it's any consolation, US Air was super rude to me the last time I flew and I didn't even have my kids with me. JERKS!!!!


A toast to you for sharing your thoughts!
