I'm baaaaaack ...

Nice to be back.
I had to take a little blogging break because ...
A mini-vacation, if you will.
We usually never go anywhere.
Scott and I were always pinching pennies and busy with school, so the time and budget necessary to take a trip (other than to see family) had never really been a priority.
Well, I am still on a tight budget (and still adjusting to the whole single-parenting thing) but our summer was wide open so I thought I would seize the moment and take us to ... Idaho!
Because Idaho is where all children want to go during summer break.
I kid. 
But I think they loved in because we got to spend it with some special friends.
And I am deliberately trying to create memories about being fun sometimes.
And also they have never been on a vacation, so they don't even know places like Disneyland exist.
Or that I am lame.
Anyway, I have every intention of telling you everything you didn't want to know about our little holiday.
But that will have to start tomorrow.
Because I am still trying to catch up my sleep from our two-week whirlwind (during which I never went to bed before 2 a.m.).
I am exhausted and frankly kinda grouchy.
My kids have been acting psychotic ever since we returned.
So I made them do chores all day (vacuuming, folding laundry, watering plants, loading the dishwasher) and gave them a very pointed lecture on how I am not going to be their maid/short-order cook/chauffer all summer.
I am a fun mom.
So I will leave you with a very ass-inine picture that Ryan took of my friends and I.
^^ You're welcome. ^^
