I'm taking a break from the 166 new posts I have yet to read on Google Reader to say that we are home. The 'just barely' comes in with the following facts:
~even though the weather was cloudy, chilly, and rainy [more on that later] we managed to get fried yesterday. Not one but two people stopped me in the airport to comment on my crispy chest---'That must hurt". Gee, you think? I quite like emitting heat waves from my body like a freaking radiator.
~Not only am I burnt but I'm sick! Last night I started feeling a scratchy throat coming on but I refused to believe it could turn into anything. I'm rarely sick, but when I am it ain't pretty. So now my head feels like someone opened up my skull and poured in some boiling hot lava. And my left ear is completely clogged---do you know how awful it is to hear your pulse through your ear drum? It's awful. But I'll live.
~My little laptop is living on borrowed time. She almost refused to turn on for me tonight and I have a feeling we'll be going to the Apple store very soon. I'm quite sad about this loss in our lives. She's been a good little laptop.
So that is all the bad news, I apologize for being so negative----the actual 'traveling' part of a vacation totally sucks if you ask me. Thank goodness I don't do it often.
The trip was fantastic and much enjoyed. I took approximately one million pictures and will have to upload them soon [possibly to a brand new computer!] for your merriment. So stay tuned for an uplifting post with pictures and humorous stories.
