I am home.  Give me a day or two to catch up on my "real" life and I'll post a few pictures, etc.... of the dream life I've had for the past month! 
Tomorrow, it's back to the nursing home.
Then, to my storage part of my basement to get rid of stuff.  That is my number one goal now that I'm home.  I've got STUFF of my mom's, my grand in-laws, my daughters, my husband's store that he sold, my aunt in-laws, etc.........  Gotta DEclutter my life!!!!!!!!!
Then, it's back to the sewing machine for Halloween costumes (there  are 6 grands to sew for this year), J's (almost 8) birthday, R's (not too far from 5) birthday, a Christening gown for a friend, and it isn't too long before I need to think about Christmas outfits for, by then, SEVEN GRANDS!  Yep, we are due another one in November!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm thinking about going back to work part time!  I'm thinking of either signing up to substitute teach (because I can always say no if I'm busy) or to teach GED classes.  I've thought for years that teaching adults who really want to learn would be fun.  Hum.........................?????????????????
It's almost time to repaint the nursing home windows, too.  I think I'll do some PRETTIER fall pictures instead of CUTE stuff like I did for summer.  What do you think?  I think they will like either.

In October it will be time to go to CT for another grand's bday!  Like I said above, J is nearly 8!  Then, back to the NE for a new grandbaby in Nov.  R's bday is in Dec.  We may have to celebrate with her a little early and include that celebration with the new baby visit.  I don't know who all is coming for Christmas, but I know that the desert family is supposed to be here sometime the day or so after.

Welcome home. How wonderful to have had such a long vacation. Sounds like you have many things to look forward to over the next few months. I look forward to seeing your pictures.

Welcome home. I know how much you love your grandkids, so perhaps your a bit torn about it. Hope your Mum is ok now that she has your support.

A big "Welcome Back"! Sounds like you have an intensely busy schedule coming up. Good thing you were able to have lots of peaceful time rocking the little one. Pace yourself and have fun! I think pretty fall pictures sound wonderful for the nursing home, but like you said, they will probably love anything you do. It will be fun to see your pics along the way.
