I need a vacation from my vacation!

I know I will not be getting any sympathy from that comment!!

But really, we played hard and I am tired.....it's a good tired, however it will take some time to get my body and mostly my mind back in the swing of things.

Coming home is always hard, isn't it?! Back to reality, laundry, the demands of life......if only we could spend each day in a deck chair.........one can dream!

Since my mind is still in the Caribbean, I decided to share a few videos with you. I appologize that they are sideways, but I don't know how to rotate videos. First, I need to set up these two. On the very first cruise we went on 5 years ago, they showed a video the last night of the week. My friends and I sat there and tried to decide whose cruise it was showing.......we had not experienced more than 1/2 the things on the video!!! Obviously there was a whole other cruise going on after midnight that we never saw!!!

So, we all decided that on this cruise it would be our goal to get on the video!! (we failed, but had a good time trying) The 1st night, we went to a game called "War of the sexes". They picked 5 guys and girls from the audience. Of course my husband and our friend Joe jumped at the chance to be in this (remember our goal was to be on the video....you have to participate). They had each group do different things like trivia, making paper airplanes and seeing how far they flew, etc to earn points. This first video is my husbands attempt at hula hooping....




I couldn't believe it!! He couldn't hula hoop!!

This next one was the last thing they had them do. It was called "bum chips". You had to carry a poker chip between your cheeks and drop it in a bucket. Our friend, Joe, goes first. You are supposed to go one at a time, but another guy (who had a few too many) cut him off and he had to hold the chip (in his bum) till the guy got out of the way. Then my husband goes......

........let me just say this up front ladies.......

...............he is mine! You can't have him, he is all mine!!


.........of course, the ladies won!!!

I can't hula hoop either. You guys had waaay too much fun; you're not allowed to be tired.

Very funny! I am a terrible hoola hooper. My girls can do it forever, I don't know how they do it!

Sara, I'll give you sympathy. I totally get it. I don't call vacation vacation, I call it stresscation. Keeping the kids out of troble, packing UN-packing putting everything away, PLUS now you have to go food shopping and the laundry...so yeah I get it.
If I could I'd rub those tired fun feet for you.
Oh, goodness does your Hubby crack me up! I LOVED his waddle!!!

I am laughing as hard at your sideways video issue- I'm so glad I'm not the ONLY one that does that. We'll help you re-adjust to reality. ; )

Too funny! I've posted a few sideways videos in my day. I'm glad you all had so much fun participating... sorry you didn't make the video. LOL! At least not theirs.

Oh the hoola humiliation! Too funny.

I always need a vacation after a vacation too. And lately I simply just need a vacation. I can't even keep up with my 365 (I know, lame) But I'll try to join in when I can if that's okay?
