Hello, Hello!

Hi All...

Just a quick post to let everyone know that I returned home safely and I had a grand time!

The highlights were:

~Having my suitcase lost temporarily at DFW.
~Being ecstatic to be reunited with my suitcase...hellow, it had all my Cayman stuff!
~Seeing my niece graduate high school.
~Discovering a new country.
~Getting 10 mosquito bites...I'm allergic...so they swelled and I itch like you can't imagine.
~Getting a tan!
~Reading 3.75 books...an amazing feat for me.
~Spending quality time with my niece and sister.
~Lounging poolside and beachside for 4 glorious days and seeing this at the end of each day.

I'll do a full recap in a week or so. For now...I need to:
~See my parents off on their annual trip.
~Move my work office to a whole new location in 5 days. Packing and moving...ugh!
~Catch up on 487 posts (and counting) in my Google Reader.
~ Get back into the swing of things and try to lose the 3 pounds I gained on vacation.

I miss you all but I'll be back soon!

Until next time...

Welcome back!!!!!!!!!!!
Sounds like a great trip. Minus the missing-for-a-bit suitcase.

I've been eaten ALIVE by mosquitoes the last two weeks and am finding that a daily Claritin (or the generic version you can find on Amazon for cheap! cheap!) is IMMENSELY helpful with them. They usually blow up on me too (AND leave a brown mark for months afterwards like a bruise......so annoying!!) but they are barely itchy at all and no swelling of any kind so far because of the meds. (I even have a couple on my FINGERS. HOW does that happen??)

Don't wear yourself out trying to catch up with things!!! :)

Welcome back Valerie! Too bad about the suitcase, not a great way to start the trip, but I'm glad they found it!!! I hear ya on the mosquito bites. They swarm you up in northern Bc!! Must have been wonderful to see your niece graduate and to spend sometime with her and your sister! I wish I could be lounging at a pool right now!

Hugs!!
