Home! Sweet home?

Returning home from vacation is bittersweet.

The sweet . . .
  • Sleeping in my own bed
  • Getting back to camp
  • Getting back into a routine
  • Reliable internet access
  • Enough heat to not care what the overnight low will be tonight
  • Not having to wear flip flops when I shower
  • 3 CF cards of great pictures (about 30 - 50 of which will likely get my approval)

The bitter . . .
  • Traffic from up north heading back south on the Sunday after a holiday weekend
  • Piles and piles of laundry with a dryer that finally quit for good . . . and no money to buy a new one.
  • Trying to re-establish routines
  • Bills to be paid
  • Going back to work
  • No more sitting on the beach
  • 3 CF cards full of pictures waiting to be judged and edited
  • Discovering that my carpet didn't self-clean while I was gone at that the vegetable oil stains are still there

I'm tired for you.
I can't feel your pain on the laundry, I don't envy you.
Can't wait to see pix of Mr. Cutie Face.

*jaw drop* (literally). Borrowing Friends would be amazing! I'll definitely be hooking up with you at Family camp. (as if I wouldn't otherwise!)
