Home today after being away for 12 days. That is just too damn long. The kids and I left for Toronto (pronounced Torono btw) on the 17th and we arrived in the middle of a heat wave. And it wasn't just hot but it was hot and HUMID. Close to 100F and HUMID. So gross! We stayed in my mom's apartment the first three nights and she only has a window air conditioner. Stephen took the red eye in and arrived on the 20th at 7:30am and we later checked into a hotel for 8 nights. The trip was a visit and we told the kids to be prepared to be bored and they were. We spent way too much time sitting in grandparents' living rooms chatting. But, the grandparents were happy and we can check the obligatory trip to "home" off of our TO DO list.
Now to prepare for our "real" summer vacation. :)
