miscellany monday

We're back! Home at last. And I admit, planned posts while we were on vacation but did not plan one for today - our first full day back. And I should have because my brain is empty and I'm exhausted and behind on everything. So when I stopped by Carissa's blog this morning and saw her 'miscellany monday' I thought PERFECT.  The idea is to be as random as possible.  I don't think I'm going to have any trouble jumping in.  

1.  I had an absolute blast on our family vacation and can't wait to tell you all about it - once my thoughts are a bit more organized and pictures are uploaded.

2.  I am dreading the mound of laundry that awaits me and the rest of the unpacking.  I HATE laundry and I HATE unpacking.

3.  Both kids have been battling sinus infections all week (fun while on vacation) and now I've joined the ranks.  We're all coughing our heads off and going through tissues like someone is paying us to.  

4.  It was pure ecstasy to sleep in my own bed last night after being away from it for ten days.

5.  My iPad has been sitting at a FedEx location since the day after we left and I am DYING to get my hands on that thing.  Can't wait for the hubs to bring it home.  

6.  We have absolutely zero food in this house and I have to get to the store ASAP.  However, I feel terrible and it's raining.  Not a great combination when attacking a grocery trip with 2 small children.

    You will love your Ipad. My brother got one, and boy, was it a blast to try out.

    I hate laundry. Hate it. So my heart goes out to you!

    Fun blog! Found you via carissa's meme. (my daughter links in as well...she's hannah from aspire)

    Blessings to you!

    Aren't vacations so fun? I just love them--the family time is the best! One of my favorite parts though is coming home and sleeping in my OWN bed. right with that. But I hate unpacking and putting away. Again, so right. Plus its not all clean. The clothes are mostly dirty and everything else is a mess.

    Oh well. That's vacations! :-)

    I hate unpacking and laundry too! My husband's stuff after vacation always sits out for at least a week. Ugh! And I also hate when you get back from vacation how there is no food! So much to do and all you want to do is sleep or unwind from travelling!

    You must update us and tell us how you like your iPad once you get your hands on it!

    Rachel, thanks so much! Yes, I will be posting about my new toy (iPad) very soon. I've been obsessing over it since we ordered it. Can't wait to play! WELCOME!!!

    oh my goodness, that does sound like a beating...i hate going to the store when i am sick, especially with two sick little ones, and with rain on top of that.
    i think i would brave it though if i had an ipad waiting on me when i got home, those things are awesome!

    Ya know, Arlington BBQ is open today. :)

    I bet you are chomping at the bit about your iPad. Have fun! don't stay up all night playing with it.

    I know and if I didn't feel so terrible I'd be having that for dinner. But since Mike is probably working late and my fever will not go away I will probably be ordering a pizza.

    There is no telling what time I'll go to bed after I get that iPad in my possession. Unfortunately, my body will probably rebel against me.
