I'm back from vacation!

Phew!  Its sooo good to be home!  I'm just popping in to say hello and tell you how my vacation went. I must say.... never again! haha.  I really thought that my family could put all their differences aside and have a nice vacation, but it was sooo stressful.  everyone got on each others nerves so bad... sometimes I feel like I'm the only normal one in my whole family =(  My three little nieces didn't help on making it very relaxing either.  But it wasn't all that bad.  We had a great time at the beach and waterpark and pool, and it was great having both the families together.  I am just looking forward to the next relaxing vacation that Paul and I get to take ALONE. I am also super excited because we are going for our tasting at Treesdale this afternoon... and our menu is going to be AMAZING.  oh and I am so nervous about my first day of work tomorrow!  eeeek!Well I hope that everyone had a great week and a half.... I miss knotting with you ladies already.  I'll be popping in here an there today, but not too much, because I have lots of unpacking to do and trying to decide what to wear tomorrow!Sending my love!=)  =)  =)  =)

    hi!  glad to hear your vaca went [kinda] well.  Families are tough- and I'm sure with it being so hot, it didnt quite bring out the best in people. Have fun unpacking!

    Hi Vanessa, welcome back! Sorry to hear that vac. was a little stressful- at least you were away from work, right? I remember the last time we visited my family in AZ, we all took a road trip north to the 4 corners and into CO. It was me, my parents, my grandparents, and my aunt, uncle, and cousins. Grandparents lost their keys (which were eventually found), grandfather got on my nerves, etc. Gotta love family! GL with your first day tom., and have fun at your tasting! I'm sure both will go well!
