I wasn't eaten by sharks

I just soaked up family time, sunshine and fatty foods. My family visits only once a year so we tried to make the most of our time together. The bad news is I did not even swim with the sharks, let alone get eaten. My amazing and adventurous plans were replaced with beach walks, naps, early nights and long breakfasts made by my mother. By the time we all got caught up the vacation was over and there was no room in our life for sharks. Now I am back and operating at a full 12%. The babies are sick and I'm doing my own laundry and cooking my own breakfast. Sniff. Sniff. I miss my mommy!!! I spent so many years wanting to grow up. Now I know that sometimes being a "big girl" isn't all it's cracked up to be. Hubby is humoring me and being extra sweet. He even cooked me "take out" and gave me a piggy back ride to help with the transition back into my grown up life. I've missed you! Hugs, Jen





Here is a vacation highlight from our Easter "Mermaid Egg" hunt. My fearful mom picked up the urchin to show my princess there was nothing to be afraid of. What won't a grandma do for her princess?

Whew! I am so glad you did NOT get eaten by the sharks!

I saw Mrs. 4444's was worried so I asked The Rambler (the other one ..in HI ... not me speaking in the 3rd person...lol)... THEN I came to check on you..so, if you get a frantic inquisition from her - it's all my fault...please tell her sorry for me, would ya.
