We're back

Yes, we are back for 11 days until we take off on our next mini vacation. Next stop Legoland.

We got home from MI on the 4th at around 10 pm. Just enough time to catch some fireworks, sleep. go to church and take off again for Primm, NV for our Freecation, with my mom and nephew.

Our freecation was fun. full of lots of waiting including going 5 MPH on I 15 to get there.

Our trip to MI was fast and fun. Yes, we were gone for 12 days but, we are use to a lot more, about twice that time so it seemed like a whirl wind. While it was good, I didn't get to spend alot of time with a lot of people. We did make our annual trip to the zoo to check on baby Kahli (the orangutans) and baby Louie (the elephant). Clarissa went tubing behind the jet ski for the first time. (I can't believe I have a child old enough to do that). I got my annual sun burn and Hunter got his fill of sand. We were able to visit my Great Aunts and all the grandparents.

This sparked an interest in Clarissa as to how our bizarre family works. How we have so many Grand parents. It was funny to hear her come up with questions. For example, Granny (Elise, my step mom) is Jessica's mom right mommy? Me: yes Rissa: Jessica is your sister right? Me: Yes, Rissa: Then Granny is your mommy. Me: No, Tutu is my mommy. Rissa: then why is Jessica your sister? Me: Because Poppy is my Dad and Jessica's dad. Rissa: Just thinking away.

We went to the scrap box one of our favorite stops and a new place Jungle Java. I was lucky enough to score 2 new Vera Bradly items, a large tote and a purse. I'm in GRITS heaven. I so miss shopping in KY and MI.

Now I'm back to reality. I'll try to catch up and post pictures. I did get the fridge cleaned out today. It's almost 2 am so I think I'll go to bed and so 2 cupboards tomorrow. My goal is to clean out the cupboards, it seems so overwhelming. So I'm going to break it down. This should help. Let's hope. I have more cupboard space than the average girl, thanks to my dear husband, and I have no room. Time to dejunk. I was hoping to go to a FREE movie tomorrow but, looks like that may be canceled due to MJ's death. Oh well, lots of fun phone calls to make and work to do. Rooms to decorate and rearrange. The sooner I get it all done the sooner I can play and not feel bad.
