We are home from our vacation/work trip. I am happy to be sitting on my couch and surfing crap on tv. I have a ton of things I'd like to say about the olympics/China/my daughter's reactions etc, but I don't think I can string it all properly, and the few blogs that I have seen mention anything positive have been bombarded, so I'm gonna hold off for now.
I will tell you that while we were kid-less in Toronto, we used the end of the afternoon after work to go see American Teen. I had been looking forward to it since I first read about it and I must say, I really enjoyed it. Basically, it's a reality version of the Breakfast Club: the Queen Bee, the Jock, The Nerd and the Emo Girl in an indiana highschool are followed through their senior year. It's a fascinating look at modern teenagers and I've come away terrified of what highschool life is going to be like for my girls in 10 years, seing at it now. Girls were mean in my days, but we didn't have the internet to completey destroy a person reputation in 24 hours via text and email.
There was very little personaly shopping on this trip, we concentrated on work and met up with some friends for dinner last night. We could have spent a little time on our own today, but instead, we just got up and drove home, chosing to be home earlier and see our girls rather then see them only at bedtime.
