...and (finally) back again

We are finally back home now (we got in around 7:30 last night) and it is really nice to be back. We are going to be moving in 2-3 weeks so we have got tons to do (rental truck, packing, finding a job, school stuff for S, packing, hopefully throwing out half of our stuff, packing, cleaning, packi......) so I don't know how much energy I'll have to write at the end of the day. I want to write about our trips in some detail, but I don't want to make a promise I don't know if I can keep. So, to keep you all in suspense and ensure that you will check back often I'll just say that I hope to tell you all about it very soon. :)

I will say this. You know how when you have really high expectations for something and then it doesn't meet those expectations? Like a movie you have heard really was the best movie of the year by people you know and they have seen it like 10 times and then you go and see it and say, "meh, whatever"? Well, meeting Wry Catcher, Sideon and Scott, and Bishop Rick was definitely not like that. I LOVED meeting them and had a WONDERFUL time with them, albeit waaaaay to short of a time. I hope to be seeing them all again soon. And maybe the next time we do my kids won't be so wound up from 12 hours of driving that they literally jump on top of Wry for an hour while we chat.

How lucky was I that I happened to be in San Fran when Lemon, Gluby and fam passed thru. I felt guilty for kinda crashing the party, but I was planning on having drinks with Sideon anyway so I really only half crashed it. I will tell you this though. After traveling all day, Lemon, Glube and fam drug Sideon and Scott on a 30 mile trek into the city where we could all meet for dinner. What troopers! (Another thing that made me feel guilty.)

I have to echo Lemon's sentiments. The time was painfully short. I'm sure we would have run out of stuff to talk about eventually, but I coulda stayed with them all night if the restaurant hadn't kicked us out.

Good company is hard to find.

Ack! you guys are moving? I haven't even met you guys yet? Ack! Ack! Ack!

But I'm glad you had a great trip and look forward to reading about it.

Your boys are cute and fun to be around. And we chatted for more than an hour, my friend. They behaved beautifully IMO.

And it was SO FUN to meet you and talktalktalk. I wish I could have also met you and Sid and Scott and BR too. Alas, that is just greedy of me.

Welcome home...and good luck on gettin outta dodge! :-)

Wow, I'm so tired. I meant to type "Gluby" in place of "you" above. Obviously, I DID meet you. Duh.

I'd love to meet all of you. Siiiigh.

Good luck with packing and moving!

Glad you are back, love your blog! Good luck with the move. I just did that recently, and it drains you of all energy... good luck with everything.

I wish I was moving!! Glad you had a good time!!

Lemon Blossom said...

Oy, sorry Supernova! I actually did see the tag last week and meant to comment. I started to and was so tired I thought I would do it the next day and then forgot that I didn't do it. I loved it, btw! And I want to hear more about the fridge with a key?!

Freckle Face Girl said...

Welcome Back! I can't wait to hear about all your adventures. I hope the move goes well. I'm just glad that mine is almost over (few things left to unpack).

Jer said...

Aren't Wry and Scott the best?

I can't wait you meet you and Gluby myself.

Sideon said...

I'm very sorry for posting so late on this!

Scott and I have been talking about how nice it was to have your family stay at the house. We had a fantastic time. Meeting BR in SF and having dinner was the icing on the cake.

Do you remember calling last week? :) You said something about being out with Gluby on a date and having had adult beverages...?

When are you coming through the Bay area on your way to LA? Please try and come through on a weekend - you guys are totally welcome to stay!

Lemon Blossom said...

Thank you all for the warm welcome home. I'm glad we were missed! Sigh, I wish you all were going to be in SF when we head back down. It would be so nice to meet you all!!

Sid - who, me? Call you and not remember? Never! Ahem.
