finally! i am writing here again, it was a long vacation from here and i sure miss my daily stuff in mylot haha! anyway, as you know (ok some LOL) we went up in DC last 3rd to celebrate our 4th up there and see the fireworks personally. it was a happy vacation and i have seen a lot. we didnt get the chance to go to the beach on our way home coz our time to check the museums in DC is not enough for just a day so we just extend our stay in DC and enjoy a lot of walkings. our dog enjoys it as well though he spent most of his time at the hotel. his second day is very funny coz we left around 11am and comes back about 10 at night. we are surprise to see him laying in bed and just sleeping, i was laughing so hard coz our dog acts as if he is caught in the act of enjoying his time alone in bed LOL it was great that he did go with us and he get a chance to enjoy his trip the way we do. btw, the best part of that trip beside being with my boys is that i get the chance to see Lincoln's Memorial. he is my hero and my idol and it is so wonderful to see his stuff and his famous statue in person. i even had a dream about that trip so it was like a dream come true. anyhow, we comes back sunday evening but i was too tired to do anything last monday so i thought i will be get a chance to spend more time today here BUT my man wants me to help him on his project so i spend 2 days doing that and i just finish it and decided to write this afterwards. oh well, great to be here again and enjoy my time writing and be part of the discussion again. talk to you later!

hello vanities, yes it was a great one all our vacations and little dates are always great so i cannot really complain about it. we enjoy the fact that we can spend extra time together and mind you my hubby didnt bring any work and even his favorite computer with him so we can have the whole vacation just for us so that is really wonderful. i told him i dont mind him working out a lot at home but if we are together specially during vacation i prefer that it is just us and nothing more hehe hey, why envy? you shouldnt be coz you have a wonderful life with your family and that is all that matters. thanks for your kind words as always, talk to you later,. takecare

Welcome back sweetie. Sounds like you had a fun and relaxing time. The hubby and I stayed home and worked our tails off. We painted the main part of the house, outside. We still have to clean the trim and paint it. We also bathed all the dogs which was a chore in its self! Then he got a wild hair and decided to clean up the back porch. We threw away two bags of garbage. My back is wrenched from all the hard work but it sure looks better around the house. Vacation time is the only time we really have to make major improvements. Then we come back to work to rest up, lol. Hugs

hello carolyn, thanks for the giggle i cant help it when i read the part you have to come back to work to rest - hahaha that is a classic LOL i can imagine how much work you guys had that day, i dont let my hubby do the cleaning coz he likes to throw away stuff even if they are new as long as he thinks it is something we cannot use. then a week later he will ask me where is where and i will tell him that it is probably somewhere in waste management area. he will give me an eye and remind me not to let him clean again BUT he always do as he thinks i like to grab everything there is - really most of our stuff is kiddy stuff that we think is great to have and enjoy haha! oh, you guys have big dogs and it will be a real chore to give them all a bath, mine is medium but he do needs a lot of my strength to tame him down haha! btw, i enjoy painting the house too. a month ago we helped our friend to paint her daughter's room and their garage - it sure looks great afterwards.i just dont like the headaches afterwards i guess coz of the fume and i am always sensitive about it. hey, how's your back now? you shouldnt be carrying/doing a lot of stuff as it is not good for your back. but if you do - i cant blame you coz i am the same and i will just suffer later coz of the back pain hehe. great to see you again, hope all is well with you and your family. have a good one!

Hi Sweetie, Well, it's actually kind of my back and side and it's still wrenched. See, my hubbies back was out for 2 weeks here recently. We don't know what caused that. The thing that really got me was one of the dogs twisted around and twisted me around with him. I screamed. The up and down painting had it out of wack already but that really did the number on me. I'll be okay. It's a muscle. Hugs

oh that must be pretty painful. i remember straining my muscle nerve on my back (right side) when i was in beijing. i was packing boxes for our shipment here and i try to always do stuff and not asking for anybody's help and that caught me. it makes me stay in bed for a week and i cant move and had a hard time breathing coz of that and i swear that is the worst pain i ever had YET haha! anyway, i hope your back is better now and you hubby's too. i am having some problem on my back lately as well as my knee i dont know why but i guess i need to do some exercising again to help my back. i hope it is not the bed that is causing it - i hate having back pains specially at a young age yay!!! oh well, i hope you guys feel better soon. wish i can help you with your dogs, takecare
