We made it home and the kids only whined about 100 times or so(that might be a bit of an exageration). That van will need a thurough cleaning inside and out and I will need a few days to get things back in order in the house. There is a huge pile of mail to sort through and no milk in the fridge. Sound familier to anyone out there. The cat and dog where glad to us and the kids could hardly contain themselves closer we got and they started to get excited and squeal. I was on the phone with my mom at the time we pulled in the drive and she laughed at how excited they were. On the other hand Alex just told me we were going back to Grandma's tomorrow. He is putting things in a halfway unpacked suitcase. I just don't think I am ready for the drive again this soon. The girls tell me we are never driving to grandma's again(they would rather fly), I guess they will just have to sprout wings because a family of 5 just can't fly that cheaply. I am trying not to feel overwhelmed with all that I have to do, I am going to take it one day at a time and pray that I don't over do it. I know I sound very disorganized in thought, I am, it just makes me feel better to put it down on "paper" and share with others. I have found out that others share many of the same feelings as me but no one ever expresses them because their afraid someone will think there a bit nutty, or odd. Ok, a whole other subject I won't get into.

Have I said how much I love my husband, well I do. He did an excellent job of keeping the house straightened up while I was gone. He even did his dishes and emptied the dishwasher. He's so sweet.

Well I better sign off for now, Alex is trying to stay up until the last is cat is hung( a dadism) and I have never noticed when the last cat is hung so I better start showing some authority and make him go to bed, if I can find the energy. Good night all, Keep God first in your life and remember, he cares about you.
