We are back home…
- Back in my own comfy bed.
- Back to where the coffee is drinkable.
- Back to our tail wagging, snoring and heavy breathing, farting dogs.
- NOT back to work. Yay!
I must say, it was really hard leaving Southern California. Our trip was graced with fabulous weather. YaYa and I had such a grand time with the family and friends. I would have loved to have stayed longer but, for many reasons, could not.
Although we got lucky traffic wise, the trip home took nearly 7 HOURS. By the end of it, my right knee hurt so badly that I was pining for Vicodin, an above the knee amputation, and a new car. The MommyVan has never been kind to me on long trips. I’ve about had it. All I can say is that it is good that I had cruise control at my disposal. Without it, I wonder if I’d be able to walk. Seriously! Traveling by car should not be so painful. Running never beat me up this badly (at least that I can remember.)
Although I am not ready to be home, I am relieved that I have a few more days to relax (relative term) before going back to work. There is so much to do to prepare for YaYa’s 11th birthday party and his return to school.
I might even carve out a bit of time to look for an economical car to ease the pain of my soon-to-be extended commute.
