I’m baaaack!

I am back, have been for 2 days, but you know how it is with all the catching up. Add to that the fact that the kids are now out of school and so I’ve had other things to do – like referee wrestling matches.

The vacation was wonderful. Kristen and I were like two giddy little school girls, texting each other as our planes got in, then making a huge scene when she came off her plane (we always make scenes in the airport although they’ve gotten better – we use to cry buckets).

KjHer grandmother has a beautiful condo on the beach in Cocoa Beach, FL which is where we stayed. Just being someplace with the windows open wide 24/7 and a cool ocean breeze coming in, hearing the sounds of the ocean waves – it was heavenly!

Our days consisted pretty much of sleeping in, eating breakfast, carting everything down to the beach, reading on the beach for a few hours, come back up and eat a light late lunch, scrapbook for a few hours, late dinner, watch a movie (One Night with the King, Dreamgirls, The Last Sin Eater, Blood Diamond), go to bed, wake up and do it all over again!

There were, of course, several phone conversations with our children in there (and hubby). One time Noah asked "Why is it so quiet there?" I burst out laughing "Because there’s no kids running around!" I told him.

So I’m back to reality now, just with a better tan!


While I was gone hubby posted this wonderfully sweet post.
