There Has To Be Medication For This

Home.

It's a beautiful thing.

Words cannot express how grateful I am to not have to share a vanity with five children

or tell the boys for the 247th time that it's time for gameboys to be turned off or explain why we are "still" in Tennessee if it's not a big state.

I am thankful that we were able to make the 24 hour drive straight through, pulling over only once for 20 minutes to let a storm pass so that I could see the road again. > video

Today was spent emptying out a full inbox, transferring and editing more photos than I take in a year, and putting everything away where it belongs.

Don't worry, Pat -the vacation post is coming (and it won't be a short one).

In the meantime I'm enjoying having nowhere to go, not having to take a shower before noon, and getting back to sensible eating so that I can lose the 6 pounds I gained while we were gone. Oh yeah, and this...

Nothing like a little demo to help the post vacation de-stressing process, right?

  4. Ha ha! I live in TN and yes, it is LO-O-ONG! My husband used to have to travel the state for his job and a couple of times had to drive from Memphis all the way to the eastern end of the state in a day with work to do at both ends. Makes for a long, long day. Fortunately he doesn't have to do that anymore, but I'm sure he could tell you exactly how long (probably down to the minute) it takes to drive from one end to the other.

    Glad you're home safe!

  5. Yes! I love the lightning! And I'm SO glad it's a family disorder to come home form a VERY long trip only to do something crazy to the house. My last project right after coming home from camping was when I painted the bathroom cabinets!

  6. Nice lightening show. But that vanity is nothing compared to our home! I was expecting much more chaos.

  7. Good book choice to listen to. I read that book and really liked it. Great lightening show and I would have done the same thing by pulling over. Driving in that stuff during the day is bad enough. At night with semi trucks on the road is horrible. Glad you're back safe.

  9. Lies, lies, and more lies. I highly doubt you stopped because you "couldn't see the road" - more like you couldn't see past-your-own-drool-because-it-was-that-awesome-of-a-storm moment. c'mon now, i know how you are when it comes to lightning/thunder storms. hehe
