I'm Backkkkkk....

Whew... yep that's right folks I am back!!! Exhausted, tired, on pain meds, and only half way thinking straight... but I am back!!!

I saw everyone to the door yesterday - gave them a kiss, then a hug and shut the door behind them!!! Whooo Hooooo..... I have peace, I have quite, its allll goooodddddd!!! Bahahaha....

I will say that it was a long ten days! Once again - all of you full time mothers out there - you are my hero's! I mean it - REALLY! I don't know how you do it.... these past ten days where non stop - just go go go!!!!

Here is an example of what I mean... the following is just a small part of the things we did while the kids where here.... there are several events I didn't take photos of (like the movies, homemade pizza night, the shooting range, the local pool, the beach and surfing, etc.)

We took the kids to see the traveling Wall and to honor all of those who had lost their lives for our freedom here in the country.

We put up a slip and slide in our front yard (this is the first time I realized how old I was!!!)


We went jetsking!!!!



Then we went tubing behind the jetski! (This is when I realized I was REALLY REALLY old - and during my major wipe out I pulled something in my neck. Well the pulled something in my neck lead to an ER visit about four days later - where they gave me Valium and a muscle relaxer on an empty tummy! I ended up being sicker when I left than I was when I went in - NOTE TO SELF - never ever ever let them give you shots on an empty stomach!!!)



Then we went to visit my best friend and my god daughter and their family.... My best friend has opened up an inflatables business and hence we were able to blow up the bounce house and the water slide!!! The kids also had a great time in the pool in the back yard as well!!!





Notice this is me and hubby in the bounce house!!! Bahahaha... Can you believe my hubby is 42 years old and had never been in a bounce house!!!!




Here's a photo of my god-daughter - I can't believe how big she is!!!!



Then of course we had fishing and more fishing!


And then my Yankee step kids had NEVER seen an alligator in the great outdoors so we took then on an alligator hunt! (With camera's only - no guns!! LOL)


So as you can see - we were BUSY!!!! I took yesterday off to relax and do nothing but catch up on my recorded programs! And then of course to sleep! The muscle relaxers make me sooo sleepy!!!

Today I have to clean my nasty house it looks like a hurricane came through it - but I guess it was just two kids and a hubby!

I am hoping to get back to work and finish up my "Land of Enchantment" series along with some other stuff I have in the works! I also have been working on my marketing plan for July and I have a surprise for you!! (It is something I only do twice a year!!!! So you will not want to miss it!) I also hope to have a gift for all of you to enjoy in the next few days! So make sure you come on back!

Until Next Time!
