But ya know what I HATE about vacations and traveling?
Coming home to the "return from vacation chores".....the unpacking, the restocking of the groceries, the sorting through of a weeks worth of mail, the checking and replying to telephone messages....and OMG the laundry.....I'm on laundry load number 35....and still have 259 to go. There's sand in my luggage, there's dirt in my van, we still haven't been able to locate my son's sandals, and I feel completely out of touch with all my bloggy friends. I tried to read a few from my phone while on our vacation but found it incredibly frustrating as it would take 15 minutes to open each page. I eventually gave up. And quite frankly it may take me a few more days to get caught up with everyone's blogs. With school starting IN 34 HOURS!!! I'll have LOTS of time on my hands....=)
We returned home early Saturday afternoon from our week at Higgins Lake. We had a fabulous time. I posted about last year's Higgins Lake vacation a couple weeks ago. We took this same vacation and stayed in the same 2 houses, with the same families at the same time in August Last year. And it was a miserable week.
I rode a jet ski for the first time ALL BY MYSELF. I'm feel'n all growed up and stuff.
My back and arms were ridiculously sore from jet skiing.....I could barely lift my arms above my head the next two days. I had no idea I was getting a work out at the time. Who knew?
We spent the evenings by campfire Roasting "weeners" and marshmallows for smores, blowing up bottles with fireworks (we're good parents like that), melting glass and generally turning our kids into pyromaniacs.
I read two books. The first was a total smut novel....one of those historical romance novels (one of my guilty pleasures) with a dramatic photo of a couple in the throws of passion on the front cover. Can't even tell you the title or author. But It was good. Just ask my husband.
The second book, The Bride Stripped Bare, was a very strange and disturbing book. My dear friend K liked it. Now I know why. LMAO!
Every stink'n picture of me on this trip looks like the one below. I look like a deer caught in headlights. My husband has a horrible habit of picking up the camera...saying "hey, hun"....click....
Smurfette was in all her girly glory with her 3 friends on this trip.
