Home at last!

We are finally home.  What a long day in the car.  Now THAT is a lot of togetherness.  We all did fine, and travelled fine.  Our hosts were amazing, and I almost tear up, thinking about all of the special touches that Susie did to make it easy for us.  We did all of our laundry last night, at her house, so tonight would be easier on us.  She packed special snacks and such, set the coffee pot timer for 5:30 am, etc.  Unbelievable.

It rained for the first 3 hours or so of our trip.  Nothing severe, but the sky looked like it could go ugly.  Thank God it didn't.  Sun came out somewhere in Oklahoma, and we cruised on home.  If any of you wondered about the updates from the road, I dictated to the girls, and they sent the text.  I do NOT text and drive.  Just so you know.

I had to ignore 98 facebook updates and gifts.  I turned down animals, plants, drinks, updates, and all sorts of other things.  I just didn't know when I'd ever get through them all.  LOL  Nice to know that ya'll sent them, though.  

I had a ball updating via twitter, but even more fun was coming home and reading all of the comments!  Kevin and I read them and laughed out loud.  You guys are funny.

We're all unpacked, and I traded in my vacation day that I planned for tomorrow, since work is hectic right now.  I'll have a spare vacation day to use later, and I'll be able to help out at work, too.  Worth It!

Good night, dear friends.  That was an AMAZING vacation.  It was relaxing and fun and exhausting and we're all sore and tired.  Yup.  That's a good one.  I'm off to recline and have a cold drink.
