We have returned!

Our apologies for the sudden disappearance--and on a Review Rednesday, too! It's just as well; we didn't have anything to review this week. What we did have was a visit from family! Or rather, family members going to Disneyland and us going to hang out with them. This time it was Sarah and her little monsters. I use the term affectionately, of course, although this time they seemed a little extra grumpy. I seem to remember hearing that they had a super long spring break (or at least the two who are in school did; the youngest is home all the time), so maybe they were getting a little tired of each other. It happens with siblings sometimes.

Anyway, I do want to tell everybody all about it, but! we're kind of dying, so we need to recuperate first. I will tell you that Grawp and Hagger's favorite game this time around seemed to be jumping on grownups and then letting those grownups continue to hold them. So when I woke up this morning, I was like, "Did I sleep in a weird position? Is something up with my mattress? Why do I ache all over?" and then I remembered yesterday (wow, was it only yesterday? it feels like a lifetime ago...), and I was like, "Oh yeah."

Still, I don't want to sound like I'm just complaining all the time! We had a good time. It was exhausting, but it was fun. And we will relate our adventures in more detail tomorrow...or Sunday.

Today I'm thankful for getting to visit with family at their hotel on Wednesday, getting to hang out with them at California Adventure yesterday, getting a fair amount of work done despite being pretty dead today, getting to watch some anime (including episode three of the new Fruits Basket), and (for the first time in a few weeks) getting to sleep in this weekend.
