So...we're back (and have been for over a week)

Vacation was LOVELY and very much needed by both of us! We flew to NC on Monday and drove from there to Alexandria, VA on Tuesday morning. I am in love with that city!!! It was so nice and walkable and did I say nice...LOL! We only spent one day walking until our feet fell off touring DC and that was a lot of fun. My son really enjoyed the Smithsonian Air and Space museum and so did I (in spite of the $8 batteries I purchased at the gift shop). We have to go back when we can spend more time and the boy won't whine and complain the whole time about walking see some of what we missed.

On another note, I realized just how much this job is affecting my moods, life and health while we were on vacation. I did not have one moment of wanting to cry or scream and no episodes of a racing heart and headaches either. My son didn't have one episode of upset stomach or morning vomiting either. I guess we both really needed a break from our lives more than I realized. I can't wait until the next getaway but I guess I need to learn to deal with my real life huh?!

Oh my gosh, I almost forgot...on Friday when we got back to NC, we spent one night at Great Wolf Lodge  and it was a blast! We almost had to leave the boy behind could not get the little one to leave on Saturday. If you have young kids and are anywhere near one of these, it is well worth it.

  1. I'm so glad you guys had a fun trip! DC is AWESOME...one of my favorite places.

    Ugh about the stress stuff, though. That stinks. I hope the transition from vacation to reality is going as smoothly as possible.
