I know, you have all waited with baited (not sure if that is the right spelling) breath to hear from me. YES I am home. We got home Sunday night! What a great time we had!

I know, I am shocked too. 7 days with the family and we are still all alive. Of course nothing was mentioned about me and Grumps and IF. The big talk was of my nephew and my brother and his wife and her unborn child. My dad was awestruck about it all. Grumps and I just cringed. So sad I can't enjoy someone else's life.

I only had one true moment. I described this moment to Grumps as unraveling. He didn't understand it with that one word. I was just super overwhelmed. I felt left out and alone. It was our last formal night and the dress I planned to wear, I had let my SIL wear at the beginning of the week. I had no idea my nephew had smeared food all over it. I was DONE! Of course Grumps was the only one who understood my mood change and tears flowing down my face. It had nothing to do with the dress but all to do with me and us and no child. The night ended with me drunk at a piano bar crying. :)

I have to say, I would much rather be childless on a cruise than have a 14 month old crying all the time.

Now onto sad news.

Welcome back! And so sorry about your night of unraveling. It sure isn't a fun feeling . . .

What is your sad news?

Lori said...

I missed you!

So sorry about the dress.

Your penultimate sentence is spot on.

And I hope the sad news isn't AWFULLY sad news.

Welcome back. Glad you were able to have a good time and sorry about your rough night. Very inconsiderate of her to not clean the dress for you.

Worried about the sad news...hope everything's going ok (well, as ok as it can)

I'm glad you're home safely, but I'm sorry for the unraveling. I am leaving for my cruise in about a week and I plan on drinkin' lots and lots so I don't have to deal with being childless for a week.

I'm concerned about the sad news...I'm praying for you.
