Live from OBKY, LoganKStewart in “I’m Back”

Let’s reason together for a moment.

I have returned from the Great Cruise Vacation Getaway alive and well.  My freckled body is a bit more freckled.  My deflating tummy is now back up to normal, a good six pounds or so higher than before I left.  In fact, I suppose my stomach will be reeling from all the foods I ate for quite some time.  Or maybe from the Taco Bell I had on the Drive home… 

Regardless, I’m now back in beautiful, rainy, cool-weathered Kentucky.  I drove the entire 17-18 hours yesterday.  It was much easier this time around, since we left in the early morning as opposed to in the evening.  At 2:30 this morning a giant bat flew across the road and thumped heavily into my windshield, which startled me a bit and prompted me to raise a hand up defensively for some reason.  We got home a little after 3 O’clock and got to bed just after 4am.  The fence people were supposed to be at Stewartland to start at 7am this morning, and I had to be at work around 8ish, so I got up at 6:30, made some coffee, and called the fence folks.  They said since it was rainy they’ll have to wait and see if it clears up and try later.  So you know what I did?

I watched LOST

Yep.  Since I missed an episode on the cruise, I needed to catch up.  So I grabbed my coffee and watched the episode, which was great, just in case you were wondering.

And now I’m writing this post.  There’s a lot to report here on Rememorandom.  I’ve got a book review of The Hunger Games to write up.  I’ve got a week’s worth of cruising and island-hopping to cover.  I’ve got to finish Catching Fire and put up that review.  I really need to put up another Canto to “The Absurdly Epic Tragedy of Oscambria.”  I’ve got blog comments to read and attend to.  I’ve got blogs to catch up on.  I’ve got a Google Reader account that’s terrifying to contemplate.  I’ve got a catalog of emails to go through.  And I got a reunion with my two little puppies here later on today.

Lots to do.  I imagine I’ll be recovering from my lack of sleep for a day or two.  There’s just something about a long drive that fizzes out your brain a little.  But, importantly, I’m back home and back in to real life again.  I feel refreshed and excited.  I feel like I’m forgetting something.  Let’s see where this goes, eh?

And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time…

Welcome back!! I'm looking forward to hearing about your trip and what you have to say about The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. They are two of my favorite books.

Amanda said...

Glad you made it home safely and that you enjoyed yourself! I'm looking forward to an update and seeing pictures of your trip :)

Also glad you enjoyed Lost. So many people attacked the show after that last episode. It wasn't my favorite, but I thought it was excellent. Definitely one of the better ones, and I thought it explained a lot.

Logan is home! Yay! Looks like there's a lot of goodies coming from you soon. Nice. 17 hour drive? Holy mackerel...

@Crystal: I'm almost finished with Catching Fire, and I have seriously loved these books.

@Amanda: There was a lot of anger and wrath towards that episode for some reason, but I didn't really have any problems with it. What I'm having a major problem over is that my tv has been in the possession of BestBuy since 5/5 and they still haven't got it fixed!

@Dave: Yeah... I don't wanna take another drive like that for a while.

Very pleased you're home safe. The universe looked after you; the universe likes you. As we all do :)

after two years of not watching Lost (not by choice) I have finally gotten myself completely caught up in time for the final few episodes, and feel, all together, like a much better person.

@Steph: They like me? They really like me?!

@Mattson: Oh yes, and you definitely are a much better person having caught up. And just in time for the finale, eh?

Man, I just can't keep up with everything lately. Work is such a bear that I come home and sag into a comfy chair and just zone out. It's killing my writing motivation, and I've got tons of reviews and posts and reading to do. Sometimes the lot of it feels so heavy that I think my mind may break under the weight of it all.

Thanks for stressing me out.

:)

@Kris: Dude, definitely zone out more. Don't stress out on my behalf. But, on the flip side...

You're welcome.
