Post Vacation Stress Syndrome

Ever hear of this? Me either, but it sounds like what we're going through! It's been a rough week on many fronts. We still haven't gotten back the house back to normal, although the laundry is all caught up. We emptied our kitchen and laundry room totally before we left in a last ditch effort to get rid of the bugs that have pestered us for a while now. We've had an exterminator come once a month for 6 months, and we still have them. We thought if we rid the kitchen and laundry room of everything, it would do them in. We even emptied the fridge and unplugged it. sigh. We still have the bugs.

But they are much decreased. Maybe they're on their way out. I hope so. So, we not only had the vacation stuff to unpack and put away, we had all the kitchen and laundry room stuff too. All the dishes and pans had to be washed because of the bombs that were set off to kill the bugs. Lots of work. And we're still not finished.

On top of that, I haven't been feeling well. I think it's a head cold or sinus infection. Sam's come down with something today and has cried on and off about how sick he is. All he's wanted is for Paul or I to hold him.

So that's what we've been dealing with. In the grand scheme of things, it's not much. But in the everyday scheme of things, it can be overwhelming.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Welcome back to reality! That's what we always say when we return from vacation. It will get better soon.
Praying for healing and the bugs to go on their merry way! Glad y'all are back!!
