Hi Everyone.  I know it's been a long time, but we have been outrageously busy. I was supposed to stay back with Kama while my family went to Philadelphia, but we all know how that story ended.  I had to somewhat switch gears, and fast.

Dave and I spent the remaining 2 days we had packing, and getting ready for our 3rd trip back to Philadelphia. Can you believe it, three trips in under a year!

We threw ourselves into our trip. Can you believe we had to buy, weigh, cook, and blend 40 meals, and 20 snacks for our 8-day trip back. You should have seen the kitchen, it was a crazy mess. We even divided it up into 30 meals one night and 30 the next. This little pumpkin sure is a lot of work, but so worth it ;o)

I tried to keep my mind busy every single moment, but still I was breaking down left and right.

We spent our first day in Amish Country. Then, we spent Halloween touring Gettysburg.

The Institute course was in session from November 1-5, and we flew home on November 6th. I began to unravel a little more with each day closer to leaving. This is unheardof for me. Usually my eyes pop open early on the 3rd or 4th day of a trip, and I instantly want to run home by any means possible. Rushing home has lost its luster. Picturing our empty house was less than inviting.

I have much more to say, but have to go for right now. By the way, my posts may be out of sorts, and all over the place. I suppose they will match how my brain feels =)

Again, thank you all for your support lately. I reflect back on your comments when I am feeling in the deepest depths of despair.

I missed you all!


  1. So glad you are back! I can't wait to hear more about the trip. Missed you!

  2. I'm glad that you got to get away...even if it was a little crazy getting ready. Can't wait to see some pictures! *hugs*

  3. How the heck did you....never mind. You are AMAZING!

    Glad you're back! Can't wait to hear more!!
