We're back. For Real.

We're back from a enjoyable vacation home to Nebraska.

Our tummies were satisfied with Runza goodness. I could probably write a novel on this trip, and all of the craziness that went on, but that might bore you. Well, maybe not. The people it would bore left when I didn't write for two weeks. I needed the break.

Craziness during our trip:

  • Upon packing the trailer, we realized a mouse had decided to use my baggies as his new home. We had to sterilize the entire trailer. I still worried for the entire trip out that I was going to wake up and find Feivel looking at me.
  • I-5. Did you know they are working on it? Did you know that even when you're going the speed limit a fifth wheel trailer and truck can go airborn? Neither did we. They can.
  • Screaming. Screaming. Screaming. 4 days of screaming on the way to Nebraska.
  • We didn't stop to eat (we ate food from our fridge) until we got to Nebraska and could get some Runza goodness.
  • There were storms. OH were there storms! We stayed at the lake one weekend, and watched the wall cloud associated with this storm go right over us. We were spared, barely. It was a good thing, too, being as we were camping. In our trailer at the lake.
  • All that Little Monster learned. It seemes like we got into the car, and the child's knowledge base tripled. He learned about trains (choo! choo!), deer, horses, cows and clouds.
  • We spent a lot of quality time with family. I didn't visit any friends this trip, because I was planning on heading home for my 10 year high school reunion. That might not happen, because, well, the 5.00 gallon gas prices put a hurting on our pocket books. We're broke now. But it was worth it.
  • We found a sonic blaster that sends sounds out to hopefully get rid of our little gopher friends. I'll keep you updated on the progress. Because you really want to know.

We had a great time, and life will return to normal shortly. It already kind of has. It's 11:30 and I've done nothing around the house. Even though it was clean when we left, it is trashed now. With all of our stuff from the trailer dumped into piles in places. I should probably go work on putting everything away. But first -- I think I need to go to Target and get a baby gift for my friend and her new little boy!

Glad you had fun (mostly). I missed you!

Oh, so cow isn't a first word for all babies? Great, another thing she got from being born in

Glad you are home safely! Good luck with all that unpacking. I don't envy you! :0)

I'm glad y'all had a good trip! The parts about the screaming made me nervous though...we are taking Brooklyn for her first road trip in 2 weeks!!! It will be 5 or 6 hrs though...not near as long as yours!

mmmm... Runza. Makes me wish we had gone home this weekend. But alas, I am sick, and the tonsils are roughly baseball sized (by the feel of them at least) I love bing sick. Why does this always happen on the weekends, when I'd much rather be doing other things?
