Home Again Home Again!

Good Morning Everybody!

It is so good to be back home again.  It's funny however much fun you have while on vacation, how good it is to be home! 

We arrived home around 2:30 a.m. on Friday morning!  I immediately went to bed and woke at 8:30 to let out the dogs, went back to sleep and awoke again at 10:00 and then rolled over and slept until 12:30. I was exhausted.  I spent the rest of the day unpacking, washing clothes and going through some of the souvenirs.  Of course I had to had to have some Mexican food to get back into the Texas swing of things and then fell fast asleep at 9:30 p.m.

This morning I'm still trying to get into the hang of things.  Jet lag maybe, but I woke at 3:30 a.m. watched a couple of movies and then grabbed a shower at 7:00 a.m. and I was ready to roll.  I taped a video or two on my paper haul from Italy.  I simply fell in love with paper.  I guess we all did.  You get a bunch of paper crafters together in a paper store and we feed off each other buying hoards of the beautiful printed material!  The videos will be uploaded as YouTube and my country internet connection allows....So keep an eye out...Sometime this afternoon I would imagine.

Sorry I kind of left y'all hanging after my last post, but we were rolling everyday at the crack and went until late.  By the time I reached the room I had had a day.  I will however upload ALL of my pictures to an online site such as flickr if you want to take a gander at them later.  I will let you know tomorrow where they will be posted.

So the rest of the weekend will be dedicated to getting Christmas decorating going on over here.  I know, I know it's early, but if I don't start now it will never happen!  So weird, as I completely missed Halloween this year and going straight into Christmas.

Well, better get busy!  Thanks so much for following along on my Tim Holtz Tour of Italy!
