One month, three kids, nine flights, five states, thirty eight time zones (roughly), two sets of grandparents, five trips to Target, one adorable newborn, four large burritoes (that I remember), multiple cousins and uncles and aunts. Oh, and one attitudinal toddler.
As fast as we whisked away on our trip back to the States, we are back in Sydney! What a great trip it was! I really feel that it was our best trip home so far. I mean, it's always wonderful to go home, but there is usually significant stress involved, too. This time, the kids were older and handled all the travel and time changes really well. No one got sick.(!) We had some fantastic time with our families and many of our friends. I hate to get all rosy on you, but it was a great time!
I have a lot to tell y'all about. However. I don't have the time or the mental acuity right now to do it, though. I'm a wee bit tired. I keep running into things. I stood in front of the open refrigerator for like ten minutes this morning cause I couldn't remember what I opened it for. I am checking to make sure there are no more rodent home invasions like LAST TIME. I'M SORRY I JUST GO TO ALL CAPS WHENEVER I EVEN THINK ABOUT LAST TIME, IT'S LIKE I CAN'T EVEN HANDLE IT, EVEN TWO YEARS LATER. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
Sorry. Can we meet back here real soon? I promise to offer my "Superlatives" post of our trip. You know, like "Best Time on a Zip Line"...
...or "Sweatiest Person at Major Theme Park", or "Most Likely to Catch, Roast and Eat an Insect". You know--just your normal vacation stuff.
Can we meet back here? Soon? But tell me how YOU are. It's like we don't even know each other anymore.
