We are on our annual, fall vacation. No big deal, just a little jaunt to Central Oregon to visit my husband's grandparents and my great aunt.

Vacation Wrap Up: Back to Reality

Of course by "back to reality" I mean that I am a rampant bitch again. Like I said in my blogged vacation reports, I felt super nice again when I went to my sweet, home Chicago for a close-to-three-week vacation. It was wonderful. I saw friends. I visited with family.
