I'm back. For better or for worse. I'm back. In some ways it felt like forever that we were gone - in a different house with different stairs, different beds, different showers, different coffee pot (you can see what was important to me)... just DIFFERENT. In some ways, the 10 days flew. I can't believe I'm back in my "spot" on the couch already. Back to reality. It's not like I really left reality on this trip since the same issues arose 2 hours north on the shore as they do here in the woods. Same whining. Same bickering. Same tantrums. Same sleepiness. But somehow, 2 hours north on the shore, I was able to go with it (kind of). Let it roll off of me (for the most part). Walk out of the house (since Tim was around). And that made it better. It made it vacation.
