I'm baaaaack!

As I look around and see the toys strewn on the living room, hear the spin of the washing machine and remember all the errands I need to run somehow in the next 48 hours, I realize vacation is truly over! It was a fabulous week off and a great time was had by all, but it's back to reality.

Despite being back at work, I had a really good day. I walked around with a big smile on my face the whole afternoon, despite any work I needed to do. Days like that make me look forward to going in to work the next day.

Did ya see the Sopranos finale? I know there's been a big buzz all over the internet, and here's what I think. Sure, I appreciate tidy endings. I like to know what happens in the end. Did Tony get whacked when the screen went black? I think he did. The show ended much like it began - with Tony pondering the beauty outside, feeling at peace with his family unit, and being somewhat content with the business. He let his guard down in the restaurant, despite sitting facing the door and watching the patrons come and go. But who was it? The guy who sat at the counter? The other guy in the hat? The two guys that walked in? Did Meadow walk in to see it happen? David Chase left it to our imagination, and I can appreciate that. I am a little disappointed that so many other storylines were left hanging, but I'm not livid - afterall, I lost interest in the show the last two seasons anyway.

I am a little behind in my blog reading - but I'll be around!

Welcome back! When I went to Disney World I needed a vacation from that vacation! Aren't you exhausted?

Sounds like you all had such an awesome time on vacation. Disneyland seems like it'd be so much fun. Glad Madison had fun on the thrill rides, too cute. How'd she like the ocean? I remember my first time seeing the ocean.

Anyways, hope ya got your errands taken care of and that ya get some recovery from your vacation in.

Barbara: Thank you!

Beckeye: Yes, I am definitely feeling the need for being alone in a dark room to recuperate a bit. LOL

Nik: Yeah! You have to go to Disneyland, just once. It doesn't matter how old you are, you become a little kid when you're there. Maddy got to see the ocean but didn't get to actually get up close to the water, so we're going to have to make another visit soon for that.

I'm happy the show is over. I kept hearing about it but didn't want to order HBO just for one show. Sure, other good shows popped up to make it more worthwhile but I have held off. Now, I do like hearing (and seeing) the ending as it pissed off enough people that it became newsworthy.

Btw... I bet Maddy had a blast.
