Back from vacation...

You have to love the Blogger app. Sitting here getting a pedicure but also multitasking. 

I've been back a week from vacation Nd oh how I wish I could go back!! 

I had a great 9 day visiting with my family. Lots of time with the grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. 

One night I had the chance to get together with 5 of my cousins for sushi. It is a rare thing for that many of us to get together at once. 

I caught up on a bunch of movies. First was World War Z. I am NOT a zombie person nor is Brad Pitt one of my favorite actors. But this movie surprised me and I really enjoyed it. The ending was kind of anticlimactic though. Next was Despicable Me. Yes, I'm a couple of years behind. It was a cute fluff movie. Then I saw Heat. It was funny. Lots of F-bombs though. The last was Star Trek. Yep, I'm a Trekkie. The movie was good but predictable. 

Attended the college World Series home run derby with my Uncle. That is always fun. Especially when followed up by a HUGE firework display. 

Fourth of July was spent with family. Lots of food, water fights and fireworks! 

One of my last night's there, my younger cousin took me for tacos, sweet bread (pastries) and ice cream. Sounds innocent enough, right? Except that every place we went, the employees did not speak English! My Spanish is good enough for me to understand but not to speak to them. With my family, I can always respond in English!! Needless to say, those were REAL tacos! 

I've been back to work for a week now. Settling back into a routine and very happy to be with my dog again!! But I could so use another vacation. It was nice to have a break from "reality", except that reality decided to sucker punch me when I arrived back!!
