I'm Baaaack

I forgot to mention on this blog that I was taking a week long vacation from everything. Sort of stupid, being that I just asked everyone to divulge their feelings, open up and help me to give you what you want and then I just up and LEAVE!

That is like a bad relationship thing to do. Man o man. Well. With real life going on and me being fairly spun out over here in my own head, I hope you can understand that I just blanked. I mentioned on my other blog...I put a message on my shop phone and put a message on the website... just forgot The Soap Bar.

So, want to know where I went? Not a Caribbean cruise! Not a trip to Paris! I took a road trip with my husband from my home in little Tequesta, Florida (where a whole lot of NOTHING goes on), up to Charlottesville, Virginia, where a whole lot of nothing goes on) to pick up our two children. Nina and Desmond spent one week with their Aunt and cousin for one week with no TV, video games or us. I think it was good for them to have a decompressed, back to nature, no stress week. It was all about nature, baking, hiking, creativity and play without electronics. That is how their Auntie and cuz roll in Virginia and we were all about it for our kiddos.

Our trip was awesome! I feel revived and pretty worn out from the whole trip. We have pictures and I will be sharing them with you... You can pass them by and not look at them. I know family pictures are pretty darn boring if you don't the people or if you want to see my freaky family, you can peek. I'll post them in the next two days or so if I can tear the camera out of my husband's hands... =)

I'm glad to be back and I will be looking for some porn to share.......


hehe

I woke up this morn and thought I wonder how Joanna's holiday is going. I actually missed you!
Wish I'd gone on that trip with the kids...would've chilled me right out!

Sounds like a good time. My son went to the Y Camp this summer. They had an environmental theme and every day they did a field trip to either the wildlife center or to places like the Valles Caldera national Preserve. It was really good for him. Not only did he learn a lot but got a bunch of exercise.

Oh by the way is that a Tattoo of a Palm Tree? Please inquiring minds want to know.

I'm glad you are back I was going through withdrawals. Glad you had some time away...

Joanna said...

Feeling a bit recharged, but very tired... not really "snapping to" like I should be. School starts for them in only a few days.

Tattoo? Not a palm tree....

;)
