I'm back!

Back from florida and a much needed vacation. It was fun but I returned with very few photos.  This is Cinderellas castle at Disney. It was great fun and we stayed for the evening fireworks. Lovely.  Now I'm jumping back into real life and it's going to be a busy week. Today, shopping for school essentials before Victoria heads back to college Monday. Tomorrow, a work meeting and Thursday I head back to the school kitchen to put things back together for the school year. This weekend we will visit my mother and move Victoria back to school.  The summer has flown (as I am sure you have all noticed!) I also need to get my etsy orders mailed, the house cleaned, meals cooked....you get the idea. Sometimes I wonder if a vacation is worth all the catch up work you need to do when you get home. I'll be stopping in to say hello  and catch up with my blog friends too. Oh happy September. Things do speed up again in the fall don't they?


  1. Wow! you are, as we say in UK, chasing your tail!

  2. Hope you had a wonderful trip! Try not to over do!!


  3. Welcome back! I'm so happy you had a great time. It does stink the things that need to be done when we return from vacation. I agree that I'm not sure it's worth it, but deep down - we know it is!! Pace yourself. It'll all get done. We are women! Hear us roar!!!

  4. If you didn't take many photos Kathy, that means you were having too much fun with your friend to stop and do that...that's a good thing!!

    Glad you had a good time, and yes, September does seem to speed things up..we enjoy the slowness of summer and then September hits and everything seems to start happening at once.

    Remember to breathe and place yourself in Florida mentally when you are feeling the most frantic and hurried!!

  5. Welcome home, dear one. So glad you had a nice getaway. And, yes, I know all the mothers are so busy, getting everyone back to school . Daughter has 1 in Ele., 1 in Jr. Hi, 1 in High school and 1 in college..Son has 2 in elem., 1 in high school and 1 in college. They are so busy right now, they barely can go to the potty....
    Welcome home and....don't work too hard.

  6. Welcome back ...vacations are so fun to go on; but I agree a total catch up party when one gets back home! Sounds like you had a great time visiting you BFF and visiting Mickey!

  7. Happy September back at you! Good luck getting all caught up, I know the feeling all too well!!!

    :) T

  8. I always say I need a vacation to recup from the vacation. Glad to have you back.

    Have a beautiful week. TTFN ~ Marydon

  9. Welcome Back!!

    Yep, vacations often tire me out! There's always so much to catch up on at home.


  10. Yes they do!
    So glad you had fun :)
    Aren't those little buildings on main street Disney so cute?!

  11. Welcome back! We missed you but are so glad you had a much-needed vacation. You are a busy lady - don't forget to take a deep breath once in awhile! ~Adrienne~

  12. Welcome home Kathy! I love Disney! They always have the best fireworks. So glad you had fun and are home safely!
    The summer went way too fast :( And you are so right, things do speed up in the fall!

  13. Welcome home Kathy! I know what you mean about vacations....there is always alot to do when you return. And with you especially, since you are going back to work at school...

  14. Hi Kathy,

    Glad you are back...missed ya! I hope you had a great time...but I know what you mean about vacations. Coming back is hard and it takes time to get things back in order.


  15. I can't wait to see what all you do. You always have some of the best ideas. Did you ever get your bedroom finished? I remember you saying it wasn't going where you wanted it to and might start all over. Don't let it stress you..there's plenty of time to finish it later.
    I've worked all day on my dining room and am sure tired tonight. The room isn't changing THAT much but just little changes here and there makes for a new-feeling room and I love that.
    Don't work too hard on yours...

  16. Welcome back! hope you had a great Disney vacation....we launched a new blog while you were gone...Well, the daughter did and I'm a contributor...infact every lady in blogland can contribute...it's called
    www.stupidthingshusbandsdo.blogspot.com and she's encouraging ladies to write in to her email address with husband stories....A way to husband vent by using a "ghost writer".....go check it out...

  17. Hi Kathy,
    That was such a smart thing to do, to get away before all the craziness begins again. My youngest daughter starts college this year also. Yikes, it is so expensive. Every time I turn around there is something else that she needs. My oldest daughter works and is taking care of most of her expenses.

    Well, glad you are back and happier still that you had such a lovely time.


  18. Hey, you, how about coming to COLORADO for your next getaway with a girlfriend??


    love you, no matter how long since we've chatted,

  19. I know you had a great time!! I am so glad!


Thank you for taking the time to say hello :)
