SUMMER WOES... NEW F0UND FOES

First off... I'm BACK!!!! I know, long time no type. I missed you all though if it's any consolation. I wonder how many of you will be back to read my witty remarks LOL.

So short story: My visit home wasn't really all that and a big mac. In fact, wish I didn't go. No need to get into all the gory details, but let's just say I would've been happier to stay home. The only shining moment was my best bud Christy asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding (which I was totally excited about).

Things I learned on my trip: A) my mother likes to pick on my about my weight, B) my sister is a stress-case and should be avoided at all costs, C) mom's isn't as fun when the plasma t.v. kaputs the second day of the trip, D) mom's isn't as fun when you don't have a computer, E) you can't swim in your parent's out door pool when the weather really sucks, F) the bed at mom's house sucks and should never be attempted to sleep upon, G) life is harder when you don't have your husband to help you with the kids for two weeks, and H) sitting in the van for 15.5 hours doesn't feel any better when you know you have to do it again in 13 days time.

As I said, better off staying home.

Then I get home, run around like a chicken with it's head cut off, because the girls start school the next day and I have to buy all the ballet stuff for Jenna and Karis. Seems easy no? Well not really. I paid about $145.00 for their ballet clothing SHEESH!!! I'm going out on a limb and saying total rip-off. That and they better like ballet!! Then today the principal of the school tries to screw up my entire life by switching the girls from an afternoon program to the morning (I'll tell you tomorrow about THAT story). So today was stress-from-hell. Maybe I should have stayed at mom and dad's after all?

Anyways, I'm looking forward to catching up with all of you!!!!

Well, it's good to have you back...

$145.00 for all your kids right? Not just one? That is a rip off if not!

Your mom's house sounds about as fun as my mom's house...except my mom has a tiny TV and no pool.

Glad you're back. Sounds like a very trying vacation, if you can call it that.

Good luck with all the school-related crap.

Welcome back! It really sucks when staying with family sucks. And 2 weeks of it? No computer? No wonder you are stressed.

Sorry to hear your trip kind of sucked. I cannot imagine spending 13 days with my mom. Never. It was bad enough when I had no choice (think 0-21) :)

Ballet is expensive. I had Ashley in ballet for two years. It cost me about $400 per season. Morgan would be in it this year too. Multiply $400 by two - eeks.

I'm thinking about having them join the Brownies instead. Sounds cheaper and they only meet once or twice a month. Yes, I know, I'm lazy.

If I spent 13 days with my family, I would be a blithering idiot. They suck me dry, they really do.

Wasn't it great to get back to your life, though? I LOVE that about vacation. You get to come home and all the stuff that was driving you insane when you left now feels cozy.

Sorry you didn't have as much fun as you should have. Glad you are back (I've been checking daily!)
