I Came, I Saw, I Went Home

So happy to be home! But so very, very tired.

The time change is kind of hard, and the red eye arriving at 5 a.m. is no picnic, but the real problem is that I am getting too old to stay up till the wee hours of the morning for five days in a row. Stupidly enough I had planned to go to work today - I really had the best of intentions, but I couldn't do it. Plus I figured that working with clients on fewer than an hour of sleep was a bad I idea. So today I snoozed, worked from home a bit, did some laundry and caught up on Tivo.

Besides the severe lack of sleep, the trip was good. We got lots of scrap booking done, the girl's night was seriously fun (more on that later) and we even got my sister's scrap booking room cleaned up a bit. There was one major disappointment though - I did not get my tee-shirt. The store was closed by the time we got there, but I'll try to get there during our next trip out.

But as I said before, there's nothing like a visit with family to make you miss your home thousands of miles away. I missed my bed, I missed sleep, I missed the peace and quiet of my house, I missed my normal sized keyboard, but most of all I missed my little patch of Internet! Very glad to be home.

Aside from missing everything home... did you have a great time? Your mobile blogs indicate you were definitely busy.

Welcome home!

I totally get that missing something until you get it back thing. My dad lives in Europe and I miss him dreadfully. He's been back a week and I wish he'd leave again!

Glad you're back.

Welcome home! Sounds like you were uber-busy while gone, but that it was also enjoyable (I sat on my hands a second so as not to type 'hella enjoyable' there!).

Glad you took the day off, too. Everyone deserves a mini-vacation after a vacation!

Welcome home! Did you bring me anything?

No?

Not even a t-shirt that says, 'Some stranger off the internet went to Oakland and all I got was this stupid T-shirt'?
