Back to the A

I'm back in Atlanta. My stress levels finally came down in Florida. I no longer wake up at 7am or earlier like i used to. Anyhoo, this vacation taught me a few lessons and i would like to share, cos i'm nice like that.
  1. I'm definitely not having kids anytime soon. In fact i am re-examining my child bearing decision. At one time there were 7 kids between the ages of 11 - 16 in the house, but my other sister came to pick up her kids during the week.
  2. Paper plates and plastic spoon and forks ARE the best thing since sliced bread
  3. I love the sound of kids laughing together
  4. I am not as good with kids like i thought (maybe just the ones in the goo goo ga ga stage)
  5. I really don't know how to handle people stress very well. School stress is my forte
  6. I am getting a reclining sofa or chair in my new apartment, for sure.
  7. I refuse to plan my life or live my life while focusing on losing weight. Too stressful
  8. One the other hand, i can't eat like a pre-teen or early teen. My metabolism gave up on me a long time ago. Ice-cream for dessert regularly is not going to cut it.
  9. Driving 5 hours at a stretch is not bad at all. My 13 hour drive in two weeks should not be that difficult.
  10. I am really not looking forward to going away.

I enjoyed myself with my sisters kids. I got to spend time with my sister and she made me aware of some things i never knew. It was a really nice time. The kids didn't want me to leave. My nephew loved my Wrapper and he wants one, preferably with lions or tigers. I showed him a sleeping mat i brought but left in the car and he said i have a lot of cool stuff. LOL. Tell that to the kids in Nigeria.

Good times.
