An update...

I am finally home again here in Maryland. Techincally, I've been home since last Wednesday but I have been busy/tired/relaxing since I got back. Will flew back on Wednesday too and we had an extremely laid back weekend. If any of you watched the news over the last week and a half, you probably heard that Dick Cheney was visiting Georgia, Italy and a couple of other spots. Well, that's where Will was too. He flies with the Vice President. Exciting, huh?

Anyhow, since we've been back, we've unpacked all of our luggage, done tons of laundry, went grocery shopping, stopped into Home Depot, started putting away summer stuff and pulling out our fall accessories, spent countless hours on the sofa watching tv, taken a couple of naps and caught up on about 30lbs worth of mail!

I managed to sneak away for a few hours today since Will was at work and I went to the Goodwill a couple of miles from my house. I found one box of vintage ornaments for a dollar so that was nice. I also stopped into Jo-Ann's and Target and I have to confess -- it's nice being back home and having so many shopping options. Jackson was nice, it was beautiful but there was no Target, no craft stores, none of the places I love to shop at. So, while I enjoyed my time in Wyoming, I'm very happy to be back here where I know I have tons of shopping options!

I spent a good hour or so earlier trying to clean and organize my craft room again. It became the dumping ground this weekend and I could barely even walk in here. I have a ton of things on my to-do list that I want to start on this week so I had to try to clean it up a bit before I could do anything else. It's definitely a constant work-in-progress though as I'm still trying to get things organized and into some sort of usable system. Right now it's just not working that well but I hope that I can figure something out soon.

Tomorrow, I'm going to try to make it over to the ghetto thrift. It's been about 7 weeks since I've gone and that's much too long. I'm hoping I can find lots of goodies because I certainly haven't had much luck at the other thrift stores I've been to recently!

Welcome home. There truly is no place like home. I would be lost without Target. I always tell my husband if a town doesn't have a Target, I couldn't live there..LOL.
