evidently you are never, ever, ever supposed to let internet people you are going to be out of town. which is why you didn't know i went to the oregon coast until just now, when i got home.
the cat is happy to see me, which makes me happy. we didn't leave the house too big a mess when we left, so it was nice to see a living room relatively tidy. i had a nina simone album and a bizarro collection of stories waiting for me. we stopped at ikea on the way home and got a ridiculously good deal on a new futon mattress for our bed in the as-is section. it was half off! our bed has been kind of a pain in the back, and it will be nice to sleep on something with a bit more substance.
i am a bit weary from all the traveling we did, and glad to be home where i can put a little more space between myself and bickering children. there is nothing like a roadtrip to bring a family all close together! hee hee... more word and pictures tomorrow. i had a great time, but i'm looking forward to washing some clothes and sleeping in my bed!
