So Post Vacation...

We arrived home to find our refrigerator (we think it was original with the house) had passed beyond acceptable into the realm of week-old, sweaty, gym socks that have baked in the sun for a month.

Niiiiice. I'll stop here while you sip your coffee and think back on the old high school gym lockers at their worst, which is still better than this.

So, day two of the return home included purchasing a major appliance for our home. Then, in the spirit of continued spending, because the house needs a face-lift (interior and exterior) we purchased a small tree and flowers plant in the hole left by a Maple tree that had succumbed to Carpenter Ants about 4 years ago.

In the meanwhile, the imps are transitioning very slowly from the 'Vacation Indulgence' back to, 'eat more healthy food because it is good for you' lifestyle.

I have yet to come home from vacation to find that everything was just fine. Either Bing forgot to stop the mail or someone left a window open and it rained and soaked the dresser under it (and THANK GOD we weren't robbed) or we forgot that we had invited friends for dinner and they showed up and left a note on the front door asking where the HELL we were?

It is always something.

Well it's nice to know that I wasn't alone in the whole eating for crap while on vacation thing.

My kids are still on their vacation sugar HIGH!
