home sweet home.

home again. Arriving home is so satisfying and so overwhelming.
Trips back to Wisconsin are always a whirlwind. Pretty much all of our family (immediate and extended) are scattered between Madison and Chicago...with a few crazies up in Minnesota. Since Just and I went to school and worked in Madison for the first four years of our marriage we have friends up there we are always eager to spend time with.
Anyway, the time flies by so fast, and is stressful as we try to squeeze it all in.
This week I have a lot to do...at least 5 loads of laundry, cleaning the floors, paperwork for the insurance company, grocery shopping, paying bill after bill, you get the picture.
Having no car this week is going to be a good thing as I try to get it all done.
It's good to be home.

I'm glad your trip went well and that you all got back safe and sound. Good luck catching up this week :)

laundry is my nemesis. smack it in the face for me when you get to it.


Chad said...

So how's the laundry and the cleaning going? Chad spilled the beans on you last night -- out "grocery shopping" at Sbux!!! Ha-ha ... you're too much!

Hey! A girl needs fuel for the trip...plus then I will be full so I'm not tempted to buy junk food. So there! :)

We are reading the book Celebration of Discipline in our small group for church and we just finished up the chapter on Simplicity~Very good, I might add, and our good friends have decided to simplify by going down to only one car!!!! That is certainly away to solve any temptation to shop and would surely get a person ahead on bills. Just a thought:) Blessings today,
