Home Sweet Home

I dread posting this because everyone was so encouraging of my reading Little Women on my trip. Unfortunately though, it didn't happen. I must say that I am not sure what I was thinking when I decided I would read in the first place. I went out of town by myself with all three boys and each night I was so exhausted that trying to read would have been fruitless. Case in point, in my reading of the introduction I fell asleep and couldn't remember hardly a word when I awoke.

Also, my dad ended up having to work (he had planned a week of vacation) after the man he left in charge of the office had a heart attack and ended up in ICU. That meant that evenings were the only times I had with him and I wouldn't trade our talk-time for anything - even Louisa May Alcott!

I have the book sitting on my bedside table ready to be enjoyed - hopefully sooner rather than later.

It was a wonderful trip, full of great family time as well as time with a childhood friend who will be moving from Dallas soon. It's good to get away and it's good to come back home.

Welcome home! Ms. Alcott can wait. There's nothing better than hanging out with the fam. :)

Glad you're back.

Sharing Darcy's sentiments- time spent with family is better than reading alone. Welcome home! You were missed and the pictures have been fabulous, tell your dh!

I guess it means that you will need to adopt a girl like you want and read it with her!
