Did I mention the Old Man was snoring?

A flooded basement
A ripped up wood floor
A broken garage door
A broken washing machine
A broken checkbook
A Vietnam Vet
BBQ chicken
Jack and Jill, Lady and the Tramp and Scooby Doo
A lot of sweaty yard work
Vodka lemonades with friends
The Burbs
The zoo
Monkey butts and a merry-go-round
Ghosties and things that go bump in the night
Allergic eyes swollen shut in cat dander protest
Hot light bulbs and tiny fingers
Family drama
iPods
Pickle Cars
Dirty Jobs, Deadliest Catch, and most importantly, my new secret boyfriend, Mike Rowe

Not to mention
Three-week old yummy baby cuddles and two-year old tickly toddler hugs

What a trip.

10:30 p.m. and JUST now got MP down to sleep. It seems a few obligatory overpriced toys from the Denver Zoo Gift Shop weren’t the only things she came home with. Add a 102 degree temp to the list. At this moment, preschool tomorrow is up in the air.

Considering the late hour, my sheer exhaustion and an anticipated restless night with a sick preschooler, I’m hittin’ the hay. I’ll recap the whole quick trip in more detail later, mkay?

It’s good to be home.
