home at last

oh it was almost one of those "kiss the ground" moments when we finally touched down in our home town this morning!

It was a good holiday but oh my it was hard work. Hard Work. If it was just the toddler, or just the 9 year old, perhaps it would have been ok. But both of them? Whew! It reinforced for me that I am certainly not cut out to homeschool as I do not have the patience! I think we survived really well though, for living in each others pockets 24/7 for the last 3 weeks.

On the upside we went a full three weeks with no phone and no watch, virtually completely apart from our regular lives and it was a great break, time to really think about some changes we want to make in our lives and re-establish our family.

I should be sleeping now but I just feel wacky which is making it hard. I really should though as I have a wedding tomorrow that I have to do bridesmaids hair for so I have to at least try and get over this jetlag nonsense!

Just wanted to pop by and say hey, I'm baaaaack ;)

Hello there, it's been awhile, hasn't it?

So here we are, in New York City :)

We're almost two weeks into the trip and so far we've had a gastro bug go through the whole family making us all sick as dogs for a couple of days, our entire trip to San Francisco rained out (so bad that we couldn't even SEE the Golden Gate Bridge when we were parked next to it!) and a hotel employee stalking us because we made a complaint about him!

But...we also got to spend amazing days with my soul sister and her beautiful family, we got to see the bright lights of Las Vegas, and we got to watch the NYC St Patricks Day parade today. Despite the hideous setbacks, its been pretty good, and hopefully will only get better! We end in Disneyland so hopefully we end on a high :)

I look forward to catching up on everyone's blogs when we get home..

Until then,

love and kisses from the big apple!

Wordless Wednesday - New Ink

Three sessions, seven and a half hours, and one very talented artist friend produced THIS:

The green bird represents my Rocket; the red, Manny; and the little orange one sleeping in the nest is my little star xxx
