What do you mean Vacations OVER?

Hey fellow bloggers. Yeah I have been way tooo busy having fun on my vacations that I haven't been able to blog.

We had the BEST time in California. The twins played with all their cousins, I saw all my family and it was nice to see my sisters and brother. We went out, partied and we even went to see Dark Knight, which was awesome. I hate it that my sisters and brother live so far away!

A sad note: My aunt Rosemary was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis and was in a drug induce coma while they drained excess fluid from her brain. It was hard to have a good time knowing she was still in that state my whole trip. I need to call my family for an update today.
Say a prayer for her please.

I met up with my good friend DIE, at Universal City Walk. I was soo irritated that I had to pay $12 to park. WTF?

And groceries were way expensive. I couldn't believe it. And I was charged $.50 to use my Debit/Visa card at the pump. Again WTF? And lets not forget the crazy ass drivers all over the 405, 5, 10 and 210 freeways.

Just a reminder of why we left CALIFORNIA!

I cried after we walked through security in Ontario for the trip home. I love my moms and I hate that we live so far away.

I had a 3 hour lay over in Houston, and Blanca and Michele covered an hour of that time. They met us in the baggage claim which was conveniently 10 minutes from our departure gate.

Our flight was delayed about an hour and we finally made it off the plane in RDU at midnight, and we were home in bed by 2AM. I called in sick to work that day for some much needed rest.

Then it was off to Carolina Beach on Friday and we just got back yesterday. So it's been a pretty busy two weeks.

I have tons of pictures, but like the dope I am, I left my camera chord at my moms, so I have to wait for the package they sent it in.

I think I gained about 5 lbs..(I weighed in this AM), and I haven't run in about a week. I will get back on track....SOON!

I had a great time at Carolina Beach with the hubbies, kiddos and you. Know what I did the same thing in Cali, left my camera cord. I was bummed until DH went out and bought another. I thinks I need to offload some pics from the beach tonight. I will send the donut shot, C had his arms around each of the twinkies. Oh, and the Derrick getting brave and venturing into the ocean one :-) Too cute!

I wish you weren't visiting so many family members. I *might* have made the drive from the OC to the Valley!

Okay, I probably would have!
