I'm Back

I'm back, got in Thursday night, but had Elena's school trip yesterday. I actually have more energy from constantly going while away, so I may actually accomplish something around here today.

We had an awesome time. Fab weather too! I love Florida, always have and wish I could live there from December 26th through May. I don't want to bore anyone with vacation pics, but I will post a few here and there for the few who wants to see em (Ro). Every day Elena would say "This is the best day of my life". She became such a character whore by the last day. She had her pic taken with everyone.

I didn't crochet one damn thing the whole time. Elena asked me if I would have to learn to do it again-probably. I did wear my shawl on the plane ride down to Florida and the stewardess accosted me and wanted the pattern and the yarn connection. She must have approached me 10 times about it. She said she had crocheted a poncho a few months ago and wore it out and felt like a queen. She was so funny. Definitely addicted I would say.

Today is quit smoking day. So far, so good. I quit a long time ago and I recall my concentration was shot to hell. I will probably be crocheting up a storm to keep my mind off smokes, but who knows what'll turn out from my endeavors.

Elena lost her front tooth yesterday and finally started eating last night. The entire trip she ate yogurt only! She's pretty regular also and only went twice there. Last night she ate up a storm and has gone to the bathroom 4 times since we got home. She must have been starving there, but refused to eat. I think it was the combination of the really loose front tooth and she was so wired about the trip. She gets so worked up I've decided not to let her know about any future trips from now on.

I am so damn happy to be home except I wish 1) I could swim every morning like I did in Florida and 2) The maid came and cleaned up my room when I left for the day. Yesterday, after spending the whole day at a kids park for Elena's school trip, all I could think about was coming home and having everything straightened up, didn't happen!

Anyway, I caught up on my blog reading last night. Didn't comment, though I had lots, too much to cover. It's tough when Kari and Andrea had 34 and 36 entries respectively. Anyway, I don't think I'll ever catch up at C'ville, but will try!!!

Thanks to Rebecca (Wool & Flax) and Colette (Knitwitch) for the buttons. I received them yesterday, but didn't photograph them yet, but will, promise.

Glad to have you back! I missed you! Reading my bloglines just wasn't the same without your entries each morning!

I'm glad you had a wonderful time, too! I would like to see more pics, but no pressure to post them.

Good luck with the end to smoking, too! You'll be in my thoughts encouraging you to not light up.

Welcome back. Lucky you, to be in Florida this time of year, when it's still comparatively pleasant. I spent half my life there, and hate it--heat, humidity, bugs.

Hey Deneen Welcome back!

I'm glad you had so much fun although I'm seriously jealous of you!! All that time in Florida and Disney!!

Scott and I are hoping to do that for our Honeymoon, but it's going to be one heck of a trick to pull off!

Pray for us!!

Tell Elena hello for me and I want to see a few more pics here and there when you get time... *drooling*
