Ramblings of a tired traveler. . .
Big yawn. . . It has been a loooong week. My apologies for not saying adieu. I used every little ounce of energy and unnauseated moments to:
ensure a return to a spotless house! It was worth every bit of it! Now. . .for all of that unpacking and laundry that cluttered the pretty scene. Yawn. . .
The trip to OH went well (except for the fact I despise road trips). :-) Nausea was on an all time low just in time for gas prices to sky rocket (which can cause nausea to return). We had lots of fun with:

friends

and goofy family members. (My two brothers pictured.)
Had time to hit one of OH/KY main attractions (thanks to a kind aunt).
We also ate out more times than I can imagine. (Thanks to many kind relatives for picking up the tab.) It was nice to not have to cook for a week!

We are now back home in this far, far away land, and I have never looked forward to my own dear bed as I am tonight. Have some great stories to tell, pictures to post. . . I spent the last week without Internet, so I am dying to see all of your blogs! My Confederate cell phone quit working in KY, and I have been without that for a week, too. (Suffering from a bit of technology withdrawal.) If you tried to call, I wasn't ignoring anyone - promise.

Big contented sigh. . . The trip is over (Did I mention I dislike road trips? :-). My bed is calling me. Kids need their own beds. We made lots of memories, and that's what counts.

Now I will take my non-sensical mind and let it sleep!

Welome Home and Welcome back to the blog world :) There is nothing like going away to make your own bed or canoe feel great (we slept on a canoe when we first got married, they called it a matress but it slept a whole lot like a canoe). Have a great Mother's Day tomorrow!

It was nice to see you again. Glad we ran into each other. I enjoyed the picture of your house. I really like the color of your walls.

I so wish we could have spent more than just a few hours together! The kids had so much fun seeing Seth and Ethan, and Joshua really enjoyed playing his sax for you and Troy. I wasn't able to post my pics yet. I haven't gotten to the store to get them on a disc. Figures you'd beat me! I love and miss you already. Maybe we can work out getting down there when my namesake is born.

Welcome back! We've all been suffering from the Martha-less flu this week. Bit of withdrawal, I think...

Martha, can you tell me how to set up my blog so tha I can receive messages? I can't get it to do right. Glad you had a good trip.
Preston is still in hospital, it will be 2 weeks tomorrow and we are all exhausted. Tomorrow is a big day as they clamp off the external shunt and see if the internal shunt will work. We are praying it will.
