The Re-Entry Blues

Just got home last night from a lovely vacation with family.  I love vacations.  I dislike coming home.  But we must re-enter the world of “normal”.  Blah!

While we were away we missed torrential mid-west rains and, thank God, gigantic tornadoes.  I am heartbroken for Oklahoma.

We did come home to a jungle of tall grass and weeds and more moisture in the basement – which prevents us from turning on the air conditioner because the house becomes permeated with the smell of damp basement.  I have a very sensitive nose.

On the bright side, a lovely teenage girl came by and mowed the jungle in the 77% humidity on the 76 degree day – not a good ratio.

The moisture in the basement is dissipating and the sun is trying to come out.

Things are looking brighter – the thoughts of packing my bag and running away from home are lessening……

I will tell more of our trip very soon.  Thanks for listening.

  2. Your post resonates. We also just got back from a wondrous holiday to some magical places in Spain.

    As you think of your holiday, for which aspects do you feel grateful?


    1. I am very thankful for my family who still lives there and the time we had with them was wonderful. Also seeing the area where we use to live in a different perspective was enlightening. 🙂
      Thank you for sharing.
