A long night….

Mocha missed you!We arrived safe and sound in Orlando with only “minimal” moments of bedlam, but completely devoid of any beauty.
Apparently Bugles, Doritoes and large doses of Vault, mixed with cramped quarters and
gaseous air, do not equate to a contented stomach.
We happened to be the van trailing directly behind that discontented stomach and let me just say, his mother’s command of
“Quick, hang your head out the window” just doesn’t do the scenario justice.
Unfortunately, I woke to our van pulling over for clean up duty and I missed the first hand account of the sheer bedlam that I could have added to this post. No, it was not my child, but two of our kids were riding right in there with them. I do believe they gave some coaching expertise on their excellent “techniques.”
May I just add that my husband and I’s dating motto of
“Sleep is over rated” is such a lie.
Who were we kidding? I LOVE my sleep….crave it….need it.
My entire body feels like I just partied all night on cheep beer at a bad frat party and quite honestly….I have never even done that before, but I am imagining that this would definitely be the aftermath. So since I am regressing, can’t keep my eyes open, and my hubby has the card with all the great photos of my Christmas tradition posts, I am off to bed, hoping that my boys are all set for their big game tomorrow!! (Which I wouldn’t know since I am sleeping in relative silence, while my husband chaperons the bedlam.)


  1. I am glad that you made it safely. I couldn’t help but get tickled over your description of the “discontented stomach”. Poor kid!

    Oh, I can’t wait to hear more stories from this week.

    I realized that I have not been on here for several days, ACK! I love the past few posts, though. Love the sweet reindeer, love the “bird” house (and the sweet deal!), and LOVE the hair. : )


  10. Oh no. I'm sorry it got off to such a rough start. Hope the game goes well & the ride back better than the one down.
    Try to have some fun while you're there.


  11. Sounds like you need a long night’s rest in a clean, comfortable bed!

    blessings along the way,

    By the way, can you tell me about this football thing. My son plays and I was wondering what kind of league and so forth are you in?
