Home.

Well, we are finally home!  After an inauspicious start to our two week Christmas trip to Massachusetts, we are finally home, safe and sound.

The trip was great.  We got to spend time with all of Dan's family.  We got to see a few sights around Boston and we got to enjoy being out of our normal routine. 

But now it's back to work for Dan.  And waiting on me this morning is laundry to wash, bills to pay, pictures to download, thank you notes to write, groceries to buy, toys to make room for, blog posts to write...  I'm getting tired just thinking about it all!

The kids however will be sleeping in and playing with their friends all day today.  For some reason, our school system has a teacher workday scheduled for today so I'm not sure how much work I'll actually be getting done.

But as nice as our trip was and even with all of that work piled up in front of me (and it is literally piled up in front of me...if I wasn't so busy, I would take pictures of all the laundry and the mail and the toys and, well you get my drift) I'm happy to home.

Good to have you back! I've missed your blog posts.
My goodness, that is a long list of things to do! That ought to keep you busy for a while. :)
Hope you have a great day, and Happy New Year!! Beth.

Don't complain about teacher workdays! :-) I teach in the neighboring district from you and we had to jump right in with kids and everything. No workday for us till the end of the month.

Glad you are home safe. Looking forward to hearing more about your trip.
