Home, happy and really really impatient.

Hello??

Uh…

Hello??

Ok.  I know I have been gone.  For a LONG time.  I know how much my public misses my blogging wittiness.  I know how much you freak out when you can't gaze upon my children's goofy faces.  

So.

Wait no more my friends.  We are back from our vacation- wait- scratch that, family trip to California.  My bestie and I decided that vacations are relaxed, and lazy and deliciously indulgent.  Family trips, are chaotic, tiring and some of the best memories around. 

So we arrived home from CA on Wednesday night.  After 3 days of driving.  In our car.  Together.  

Do you know that kids can really smell?  

Do you know that if there is one millimeter of "personal space" that is interfered with that yelling will ensue?  And sometimes punching? 

Do you know that I get REALLY crabby with my husband and kids when I have not seen our home in 3 weeks?

Well.  I do now.  And I am really really thankful that my husband lovingly road out my moments of well, um…. not nice.  

And I am thankful my kids didn't kill each other.  Or kill us with their stankiness.

I am really proud to tell you that on the way home we taught our children the art of graffiti.  

And ate at a really cool diner.

And stayed in one AMAZING hotel and one, well.  Um.  Not amazing.  And I made the kids keep their shoes on.  And told them not to shower till we got home.  And bathed them in hand saniizer.  Of course, it was fine.  But I am a little OCD with that. 

A little.

But now….we are home.  HOME.  What a wonderful word.  And what a wonderful place.

And now.  Whilst I am wading through loads of laundry and bills and reading all the catalogs, and planning back to school shopping…..

we are waiting. 

We have been logged in with China since June 12th.  

Still no LOA .

And I am really really being patient.

Um.  Raise your hand if you believe it.

Cause I am lying.

THROUGH MY TEETH.

And now.  I will go through my sweet husbands umpteen photos.  And I will post some soon. 

Back to pacing and obsessing.  At least my kids are clean.

  1. Welcome home! It’s always great to be back in my own bed! So, do you think we should be getting our LOA soon? I keep thinking we won’t hear anything for several months!

  2. Welcome home. Praying for that LOA/PA to get here and quick!
    Yes, you definition of vacation is spot-on! We just got back from a camping trip that the kids called a vacation, but I called work.

  3. Right there with you with the vacation vs. family trip. We just call it a “change of scenery” since parents of young kids really don’t get a vacation (until they go to China for another kid and have a few days in Beijing touring first). 🙂
