Home Sweet Home

I'm home ... at last.
It's been a long week. It was fun, I saw a lot of incredible things, I spent a lot of time with people I wouldn't normally have spent time with. And, I went to places that I know I would never have and probably never will again.
It was wonderful (and tiring) and I am so glad to be home.
The coolest moment ever was when I arrived back at the airport, trudging all of my luggage, and there were the boys. Mike dressed up for the occassion - not in a suit or anything, but in the shirt he knows I love, his nice shoes and khakis and did his hair. Matty had on his "mom rocks" shirt. And, I went over and of course I cried. And, then Matt cried. And, maybe even Mike had a tear. It was pretty sweet.
It was a moment I will cherish.
And, it's so good to be back.
Tomorrow though we leave again. We are going to stay at my parents' place since Matthew's daycare will be closed for two weeks. (I HATE that they close in the summer - next year we will plan vacation around that). Next week my family is taking care of him. The week after we have hired a babysitter. She's 17, Matthew and my nieces love her. And, ironically, I used to babysit her. I know it's trusting to leave a two year old with a teenage for a week but I know her entire family, I trust her completely and her mom is amazing and will be around. So, if there are any issues they will be there.
And then on top of all of this is the added fact that we got accepted to be on a reality tv show (I know - crazy) and so we are shooting for that A LOT. We're a little busy.

The Mom Rocks shirt is from Old Navy - from Mother's Day last year. It was pretty cute because my husband put it on him on Mother's Day to surprise me. Since it's July you should check the clearance racks - I bet there's a similar one.
Oh - and the show. It's a show about eliminating Debt - so not reality as in Survivor. Ha. Ha. I would suck at that show, or any show like American Idol, etc.

They are family. You know they miss you, but it feels so good to see and feel that they do.

Hey! You got on the show!!! Awesome!!!! You'll have to tell me how it goes!
I'm so sorry about today, but I can 'rent' your son next week? I've kept the week pretty open cause I was dying to have the day with him.
