I survived vacation (but just barely)

I am home!

I have this superstition...if I ever say I won't do something or mention that I never want an event to occur ,it will...but somehow I never learn.

Before we left to go on vacation, I spoke with an aquaintance who said,"I bet you wish you could leave all those teenagers at home. "

I smiled in a superior manner, Oh no", I replied, "The best part of the whole trip is being with our children. They are great kids, so sweet & we are all so close."

So,here we are: 4 adults & 6 children from the ages of 14-17 in a condo for a week.The kids have been raised as cousins & love each other. We are enjoying catching up on the news. All is peaches & cream or should I say beer & sunscreen.

Here is a list of what the kids did this week:

1.Stole liquor form the cabinet.

2.got a scary drunk man to buy them cigarettes

3.drove 2 hours to a club while they were supposed to be down the street.

4.climbed on the roof of a neighboring store.

5.started a fire

6.two of the girls were caught in bed with one of the guys at 5 am in the dark with the door locked

7.took signs off the stairwell

8. attended a beach party with strangers

9. broke a lamp, two glasses and a spice rack

All the moms spent the time drinking copiously & looking wistfully at pictures of them when they were little.

I am so glad to be home!!!!!!!!!!!!

See, you need to come home to rest up from your vacation. Never trust teenagers. And no, I wouldn't have left them home either.

Sounds like you need a rest, LOL!  It's a good thing you don't have to go right back to work yet.  You'll need some time to recoup after that vaction!

OMG!
Nodding my head up and down, then shaking it from left to right!
Those ever so sweet darlings gave you their word also didn't they?
Made you feel stupid for not believeing they could handle themselves.
Had to shamefully apologizing for repeating such words and "You know the rules?"
Made ya feel like a fool for reminding them of the emergency contacts?

Save the mug shots for their baby books.
Tape their confessions for their children.

Welcome home.


Wishing you health, happiness and laughter.
