Whew...part two

This is for my adoring fans (well, actually my mother since she has nothing to read at lunchtime lately and is probably the only one to read this anyway)

The United Kingdom was fantastic (the Brits love that word). I could go on and on but suffice it to say it was a wonderful family outing. The boy didn't throw up once. The girl didn't really complain at all. Mr. Fun and I survived driving through four countries in 11 days without a Garmin without contacting a divorce attorney. International RYLA was super great. Missouri RYLA went the best yet, and I am surely grateful to be home. I lived out of a suitcase for over a month and honestly, I am tired.

The let down is hitting me now. I am trying to get my home in order, physically, so that I can get my mind in order, mentally. The walls that were stripped bare the end of March for their new painting but became home the the famous lists were finally painted on Saturday and actually are getting their new wall hangings tonight. The meditation garden that needed it's rock border was laid down the other day. We had a fun time at the Fourth of July Tallant blow out. I still have gobs of ironing and school supplies to get ready to delve into, attended the Water Garden tour, the Cancer walkathon on Friday to help pull together, but for tonight, I am taking the evening off and saying hello to you.
Would you like to see some pictures?

It is surprising how out of the zone I am when it comes to doing the blog thing, but I have plenty of pictures to last for a while. :) As they say at International RYLA--Bring it! And a special shout out to my Cancer Walkathon Fans! Good luck Friday
