vacation is over :'(

Wow. What a long week. It's been really good for the most part, with a few iffy times in between. :)
All in all it was really good to get away from Virginia for a while. Actually, it was good to get away from everything & everyone for a while. Much needed. I feel semi rejuvenated.
It was a good vacation. Did lots of swimming, beach walking,shell searching, sand sifting, shark tooth finding...eating. I think the thing we did the least was sleep. :) I slept less on vacation than I normally do at home.
I took a ton of pictures and a lot of them are on facebook. I'm sure that I'll post a few here too.
I almost feel guilty for having a good time this week. And I think that feeling hit me yesterday. How could I have a good time after what's happened to me??
Oh well, anyways...today was much better. Got up early, packed up everything, had lunch with Clif and my parents and then headed to the mall. :) Got some really good ice cream too!
Now we are in the car, on our way home. :( It's a mixed, bittersweet feeling. I definitely don't want to go back to work on Monday...and I don't want Clif to either. I guess that's life though, huh?
Well...I hope that everyone had a good week. :) I'll be back to posting on a regular basis this coming up week. Stay tuned for beach pictures!

I can't wait to see pics! You should not feel guilty for having a good time. I know Lilly wants her mommy to be at peace and have a good time! Glad you made it home safely! Hugs!

Glad you had a good time. It's always hard to come back to the real world. Work and being busy.
Missed you.

Glad your vacation was so full of good things...minus the rain, right? :)

I know it's hard to enjoy yourself--you do, and then that quiet moment comes where you think, "How can I be enjoying this???? Do I not remember what my life is?????" and this guilt just washes over...

I just try to remember, for everything there is a season. You know I don't think grief is a 'process' that ever ends, but I do feel that LIFE can be punctuated with joys even in the midst of our sadness.

Lots of love!

Vacations are always nice to have and hard to come back from. We always sleep less on vacation. That thought hits me too where I feel how can I have a good time, but it passes as well.

hugs and I am happy you had a good time.

BTW I love your song you have playing.
