Yes, I’m actually here. I haven’t been home in 16 days. (Well, there was that 12 hour layover as I packed the 2 summer outfits I own…) And my house is showing it. I just noticed my bathing suit that I wore in the Therapy Pool in Minnesota is still in a plastic bag in a suitcase in my dining room. Our car isn’t even fully unpacked from yesterday. It took me most of the morning to even find my computer and power cord.
Right now we’re having quiet time and that’s the only reason I’m even blogging. I’m about to be overcome with laundry and grocery shopping.
I did check my inbox (89 messages in one, 79 in the other). I also checked my bloglines (1455 unread posts). Alas, I had to “mark all read”. If something really important happened in your life (you got married, you won the lotto), please let me know because there is no way I can catch up.
I know the real stuff you want to hear–the Mouse, the Princesses, the food and oh! the sun! But really, I’m just not ready to collect my thoughts yet. And so I don’t bore you to the floor (is that a phrase? Or did I make that up?) I’ll probably do my big updates on my vacation blog. That way you can read about every meal I ate and every outfit I wore. You know, the really important stuff.
In a nutshell, it was a heavenly vacation. The only kink was Lydia’s sleeping. She has always been a champion sleeper. But this week, we co-slept most nights and still it took her 3 hours to fall asleep each time. *sigh* One night I counted only FIVE hours that she slept. Meaning, I probably had FOUR.
However, I can’t let you go without at least one picture. This is Lydia’s first official Disney picture of the week. We had just gotten out of the car after driving a billion hours. We were still in our jeans and sweatshirts. The “Mickey boat” is right behind her. She doesn’t look happy, but that’s only because she has no idea what’s in store for her! Even with the pouty face, I love this one!
