Home. And then some.

WOW is all I can say about that trip. I had a great time with my friends from school, Mr. P and I had a good two days in NYC, I had fun seeing my cousins and aunt for my nephew's 3rd birthday party, and my sister and I arrived home yesterday with the baby (we flew), and the boys got here this afternoon (Mr. P drove the truck with the furniture, my brother in law drove the car with the pets). On Monday (when College Kid returns from camp) I will have my whole family in the same zip code, and that makes me very happy.

I DID gain 2.2 lbs which is a bit disheartening, considering I ran 5/9 days. However, I indulged in TWO Fluffernutter Crumbs cupcakes, macaroni and cheese, super brunch, Cake Batter Confetti ice cream cake, pizza, eggplant parmigiana, two ice cream cones WITH sprinkles, beer, pommes frittes, creme brulee...OH JEEZ, maybe it is a great thing I only gained 2.2 lbs.

I did a little run this morning, having to get re-acclimated to the Alabama heat, so I am back working the system. For the first time today I tried the yogurt/Kashi/fruit breakfast combination and I LOVED it. That is definitely going into my repertoire, I think I need to force breakfast into my routine, especially since I teach mornings in the Fall.

I still have lots to tell you, including how my mom called me on my birthday to ask if she could live with Mr. P and I for two months because she wants a "transition" to moving to the town we now all live in...yeah. Remember what happened in May? Some of you read my sister's blog, so you know my mother's latest weird ass shit. My nephew wanted a Blue's Clues birthday, and if you didn't know...Blue's Clues is OUT, can't find Blue's stuff anywhere. So, we were chatting about that and she told us that she googled Steve because she was pretty sure that Blue's Clues went off the air because Steve is a pedophile. She jumps to these insanely judgemental conclusions and that drives me batty. But, not to be outdone in being weird by my Mom, Dad has decided that he is coming to my nephew's Alabama birthday party and bringing his new girlfriend (to stay.at.my.house). GAG.

So Mr. P and I will be empty nesting for Thursday night before we have creepy company. score.

Welcome home! What's a vacation for if not a little indulgence?? You'll drop those pounds back in no time.

On the family stuff--yikes again. I hope the creepy company doesn't overstay their welcome...

Family. Gotta love them. At least you had fun on your trip! And your sister is here! And your adorable nephew!

I totally feel you on the gaining weight from eating too much good stuff. Back on the bandwagon starting today. Kinda made me (and my taste buds) sad.

Glad you had such a great vacation, and that your sister et al are now in town! And you got on the yogurt/fruit/Kashi bandwagon - woohoo!!! Another convert - YES!!!

Um, your mom? And dad? How did you and your sister turn out so normal?

I guess if you are going to have a small gain at least you had some yummy food?!

Sounds like you had fun.

Jenn said...

Glad you had fun in NYC! I think you did great weight wise considering all that yummy food you ate!
Blues Clues is out?? My kids love that show! Steve started his own band, that's why he left - look him up on Youtube, he's got a few videos on there...

I've missed you while you were gone. Selfishly, I'm glad you're back in town. I say, let your mom, dad and his girlfriend inhabit your house while you and Mr. P seek refuge in a local B&B. You just might maintain your sanity that way!

She-Fit said...

Welcome back from your trip! Sounds like you had a lot of stuff to come back to. . . oh family!

No worries with the weight gain. You will lose that in no time!

I am glad you had a great time! 2.2. is nothing! I bet it's already gone ;)

Your mom reminds me of Steven's mom. She goes off on weird stuff, and all of us are like... "where the eff did that come from?!"
