I'm back! Did ya miss me? I feel like I've been away for an eternity.
We arrived back in Philly late yesterday afternoon and today I am doing my best to decompress.
But I still feel like I'm swaying back and forth on the ocean. Seriously. Why do I still feel like that? I don't thing my brain has gotten off the ship yet.
Anyway! I'm trying to unpack and catch up on some laundry. Don't you love washing bedsheets? You know how the drier has a knack for wrapping the sheets up into a little, tightly-knotted ball of damp mess? How does the dryer DO that? I have to pull them out....unwind...untangle (it takes me a good 10 minutes methinks)...swear at them a few times...and then return them to the dryer every 30 minutes - for half the day - in order to get them 100% dry. I've even been known to say "eff it" and put them back on the bed damp. The Hubby will get in and say "Is this bed wet?"
Um no, honey....it's just...cold. Yea. The sheets are cold. Of course it's not wet! What kind of housewife do you think I am?
See, I can see you nodding your head. Only housewives know shit like this.
I'm also desperately trying to catch up on emails - I only had 80 in my personal box. Not too bad. But I had over 150 in my work box. Ahhhh, crap. That's going to take some time to sort through. Bring on the coffee!
And gee, I only have to go grocery shopping, clean the house, do 10 loads of laundry and get a present for an upcoming birthday party later this week. No sweat, right?
Um, yea. Right.
At least I'm sporting a great tan from hanging out at the ship's pool all week. I'm sure the people at the grocery store will appreciate my tan. And I have over a pound of ground, Dunkin Doughnuts coffee in the kitchen, ready to go.
Gotta think positive.
So give me a few days and I'll be back full swing. I have lots to share about the cruise - there were some unexpected bumps along the way, but then this wouldn't be my life if there weren't. In the meantime, here's a little teaser picture to tide you over. This is The Hubs and me at the pool on one of our sunny days....
