Monday Madness - Happy Monday


It's Monday and even though it is MONDAY - I am happy to be home. Yes, you heard that right - Kel is happy to be back on a Monday...here is why.

1. Driving in the car for 8 hours is oh so enjoyable with 2 kids in the back seat. That is 8 hours one way and 8 hours to get home. I've never been so happy to be back in my own home, my own bed, my own stuff...oh it's great!

2. I don't have to eat Turkey again for another whole year. I enjoyed eating a thanksgiving meal not once, not twice, not even three times in the last two weeks...I had Thanksgiving 5 times in two weeks...4 in the same week and none of which were left overs.

3. Family is nice but there is a limit. Don't get me wrong, I love my family - I've even been blessed with a nice in-law family whom I get along with(unless I stick my foot in my mouth and make them mad, but that's another story) but we do not live close, we do not spend uber amounts of time with either side of our familys so suffice it to say that even though I love them, and I love spending time with them, too much time makes me want to shoot myself. (Then again it could be resultant of #1)

4. I get to announce the winner of the Pajama Giveaway!!
As generated by Random.Org our lucky winner is Mommaof4wife2r. Congratulations and I hope you enjoy your new PJs!!

I also want to give a big THANK YOU to all my guest
bloggers who did an amazing job while I was away. Your stories made me smile,
laugh, and remember what's important - having wonderful friends like you make
life so much more! Thank you!

What are you HAPPY for this Monday?

Wow, what a drive! I feel so lucky that I only had to go an hour and a half to get to my family (well, then another hour to my dad's house, but it wasn't so bad -- at least the drive was broken up!). And I was driving with teens and adults, so I didn't have little kids to attend to...
