So we are back... got in late last night and didn't get to sleep very soon because my body is still on island-time. So I am just a wee bit sleepy this morning, and since I was just catching up on everyone in livejournalland, my mind is busy sorting everything for later subconsciousness and does not wish to provide lovely evocative descriptions of the last week or so. We'll just sum up and say we had a fabulous time. Got a little journal to record thoughts/memories of the vacation in and completely failed to use it even once... must try to do that if possible so I don't lose the details as I am prone to doing. Bought lots of little things for ourselves and the family, sorted through the accumulation on mail a bit, and was thrown into hysterical laughter once again by my mother's "help" with our grocery list. Honestly, truly, noone in this world can make me laugh like my mother can - I just can't explain it, but her sense of humor and mine just synch right up. I still have an email somewhere where she screwed with my xmas list - everytime I read it, I am laughing out loud. Just thinking of it has me smiling. To me, that is magical. My poor beloved one is sunburned, but other than getting a bit scratched up by snorkeling, I fared well... got a few misquito bites but avoided any symptoms of Dengai (sp?) fever and my hair has not yet fallen out in protest of the abuse lavished upon it, and I just feel much better and less stressed (though I could not quit thinking of work last night) and more contented. Life is good. Even when it's bad, it's still pretty good (oh dear, I think I'm stealing pizza quotes). Must develop film so I can force vacation pictures on hapless people. Trudi is talking me into scrapbooking with her down in San Jose and between recent trip and her and other girls in the gothy section talking about it, I'm thinking I should. I haven't reallly done anything since I got my sewing fixation. Alas, I don't know if I have time for all these projects. It's Oct 10th and I don't have Halloween stuff even unpacked much less up... I'm wondering if I should just leave it in the boxes this year. Then of course there is ThanksgivingChristmasNewYears to get through, and I also want to do more with my cooking and I * * * must * * * get a recipe for bananas Foster and learn to make it... it is on the menu for Nate's birthday next year instead of cake. It is yum. Welcome to my stream of thought... please keep hands inside the boat and remember that fishing is allowed but baiting is something that should only be done by those that know me well. Eah. Playtime is about over so I suppose I must bring this to a close - more during afternoon recess if I have a chance.
