Photobucket ::Sigh:: It's Over

Vacation is over and it's time to get back to our new normal.

I spent the a.m. loading photos, doing laundry, talking with TOG (Yippee - they are sending me a free loom), sending out co-op emails and various other emails, weeding through the in-box.

Mike called and we drove out to the Fam Camp to pick him up. We then spent a couple of hours totally cleaning the trailer, unloading, putting things away etc. We're officially home.
I'm pretty sure that I will post more scenery photos in the weeks to come. I'm also pretty sure that I'll post some thoughts about vacations eventually....but for now we are home.

It's time to look ahead to the start of our new PWOC year, our new School year et al.

Mike took me out for a late lunch/early dinner after we parked the trailer back on the storage lot. We brought pizza home for the children. We've set up the screen and will pick one of the awaiting Netflix movies. LOL

*Michelle, I thought of you today. I went to a garage sale that had a pair of beautiful silver candlesticks (2 - 3 candles each) for $20. Is that a good price? Should I have bought them? I saw someother stuff that I knew were good prices (luncheon plates/cups, toaster/convection oven, Tupperware) but I told myself if I don't really want or need something it is NOT a great deal regardless of the price. I HAVE been wanting some special candlesticks for Shabbat and Passover....maybe I should go back tomorrow.

::snort:: NOW I have giant photos!

De'Etta, I'm glad you and Mike were able to spend some time alone together. Glad you had time to squeeze in some bargain shopping. As far as a good deal on the candlesticks---you can use them, they add beauty to your celebration and the price is reasonable. Sounds like a bargain to me.

Coming home...such a bittersweet sort of time. You guys sure jump on the cleanup. Our trailer often has to wait a week or so before I finally clean it out. Of course, we have ours right here.

Welcome back!

Debbie, our town has an obscure ordinance that you are only supposed to park your trailer outside your home for TWO HOURS!!!! Most ignore it. Our neighbor is a state trooper and says he "must" report illegal he calls the cops on us. They come out and laugh and tell us to move it three days or it will be towed. We like trying to beat the law.

BTW evidently he only has to report our trailer and none of the others on the street. ::snort::

Michelle - I think I'll go back and see if they are still there.

2 hours to clean out your home one wheels??? Impossible, glad you can skirt the law about it.

sounds like a pretty good bargain. Just look them over to be sure they are not soon to start sheding the silver. That happened to me once....

I have quit looking at my favorite old stores and going to garage sales because there is absolutely nothing in the whole world that I really need. :):)
