Oh yes...

...the return. Kelley, I read it, and I felt it. So true...

Last time I was out for a long weekend, I could tell you, upon my return, everything my family had consumed in my absence.

Littered along the counter were buffalo wing bones, pizza boxes, burger bags, a variety of empty cans, and several candy wrappers.

And any typical household mess is always doubly compounded by a child's love of clutter. (Everything has value to them. It's not that they haven't gotten around to throwing it away, it's that they don't want to...)

I'll add this as a tangent: Among the items currently being "saved" in my household is a fairy godparent fruit snack box with a secret internet code inside... Why? Why do these marketing retards have to do this to us?

But from what I can tell in this case, the long weekend seems to have been well worth the pre- and post-trip stresses. Beach therapy is very useful. Now, next time, TAKE ME WITH YOU! Seriously. I'm not kidding. I'm a beach whore.

Key, your hotmail account is not working. Tried to send you something and it failed. Emaill me with an alternate address, I have something to show you! :-)

I guess the "marketing retards" have done their job on Miss Priss as well as on me. It is Fairly Oddparent fruit snacks, and not fairy godparent, that you speak of.

I have been sucked into watching way too much TV with the kids to have noticed that factoid. I am a sick person.

The beach IS good for the soul...that's why I go a couple two three weekends a month.

All the hotmail accounts are messed right now for some reason. I can't access my accounts on either Mozilla, IE, my laptop, my desktop.
