Honey, I'm Home!

Did any of you out there miss me, or even notice my absence from the bloggosphere?! We got home last night from a two week vacation. For the most part, I had no access to internet during our time away -- which is pretty much equivalent to that Man vs. Wild television show.

We had a great time overall, although some circumstances along the way were .... well .... certainly "memorable". Here's my recap of the "12 Days of Vacation":

On the first day of vacation, my children gave to me -- a dead rat lying on the beach.

On the second day of vacation, oh what did we see? An ocean full of stinging jellyfish.

On the third day of vacation, what's that on your face? Allergic rash brought on by the sunscreen.

On the fourth day of vacation, mom what did you eat, to cause you such violent vomiting?

On the fifth day of vacation, kids what's that you have? Water balloons which are their "babies".

On the sixth day of vacation, called the family doc -- requesting drugs to treat our swimmers ear.

On the seventh day of vacation, my mom was sick again -- this time we had to dial 911.

On the eighth day of vacation, we caught a lot of fish -- even with that puny Barbie pole.

On the ninth day of vacation, my mom she underwent -- gall bladder removal surgery.

On the tenth day of vacation, we had a lot of fun, playing in our back yard swimming pool.

On the 11th day of vacation, we drove the 4-wheelers -- and had a dance party at poolside.

On the 12th day of vacation, the doctor sprung my mom, and then we let off lots of fireworks.

So there you have it in a nutshell -- except I couldn't figure out how to incorporate the phrase "we ate non-stop for 14 days straight to the extent that our stomachs nearly ruptured". Call 911 again!!

And now, it's back to life, back to reality. OK, WHO packed this dead rat in my suitcase?!
