My kids are home. So many things went wrong with our trip. I had to over spend on flights and child care for my brother in law. We missed a flight, cancelled it, so I paid a cancellation fee, rebooked a flight for an additional $104 and then since his sitter missed 2 days of her real job which pays her $20 an hour, I had to spend $320 on child care. Needless to say, it was a hot mess. My ex apparently emptied out my duffle bags which had my clothing and shoes and used them for a trip he took before he moved away and did not repack my things properly so I do not have most of my clothing and shoes. Those were left behind with a bunch of other stuff including my printer in my mom's apartment. I have to go back for those items. I couldn't bring my queen sized mattress so I am still sleeping on an air mattress but my kids are home. My pets are home and my apartment is no longer a sad empty place to come home to, and they are all home just in time for thanksgiving next week so that is fantastic, but with all the moving, the long drive, and returning to work long shifts, I'm exhausted.
