We're Back!

It's 5 am and Jerry and I are wide awake. We arrived in Sacramento late last night after almost 24 hours of travel (if you count subway and layover time). I did start to write one post while we were in France and managed to upload a bunch of photos but I ended up getting really sick and never had a chance to put them in order or write about them--so that post is still waiting to see the light of day.

So, yes, I did get sick (three solid days worth of the worst flu I've ever had). I also fell down the stairs the first night there (curse those steep and twisty European stairways!). And I guess the Fates like book ends because when we got off the airplane in DC I ended up being unable to walk and had to get a wheelchair to take me from one gate to another! Warren, that ever sensitive husband-o-mine, laughed and video taped the whole thing. But that's another story.

Really, I just wanted to say we're back and we had a great time and the house was terrific. I'll post some photos from the first week in the next day or two.

In the meantime, here's a picture of Jerry and Summer harassing Warren. It was one of their favorite past times while we were there. And it was really fun to watch.

We're leaving tomorrow! Anime Expo (with four kids in tow) today, breakfast with our neighbor, then pack and leave town tomorrow, 4th of July party in Sacramento on Saturday and a flight out of the country bright and early Sunday morning. I can't believe the time has gone by so fast!

This is how swamped I've been: I was having a facial the other day (more bliss) and I feel asleep during the massage. I started dreaming of To Do lists! Isn't that crazy?

Anyway, I've got two hours before the kids show up for Anime Expo and there are screens to be washed and plants to be watered. Gotta run! My next post will probably be from France!!
