To tide you over...and allow me some rest.

I know that I have been MIA. I kind of apologize but really, I am too damn tired for that nonsense. I just can't keep up.

I got back from my trip on Monday evening and had to work yesterday and today (as well as, tomorrow and Friday--what happened to a day or two to recover from vacation?). Last night I had a Girl Scout meeting and Miss Quiet wasn't in attendance because her grandma had a heart attack yesterday (thoughts are with you girl!) so I ran it myself. Wouldn't you know that all of my girls would be there and the meeting would be scheduled to be held with another troop. We made it through despite the case of the missing girl (that was solved) pretty much unscathed. And of course, to top that off, it was Tuesday which is a wrestling practice night so I had to arrange for someone to take Bubba for me. you should be getting a recap of my trip, right? Um, no. Today, you will be getting this.

It was totally stolen from Amy who stole it from Kapgar.

And I will work on a recap of my awesome trip for tomorrow. I am dying to show you pictures of the best hotel bed I have ever had the opportunity to spend a mere four hours sleeping in. :)
