alas, we are back from our month long journey to new york, vermont, new hampshire, maine, new brunswick, nova scotia, and philadelphia. it's funny that often the best part about going away, is coming home again. i completely agree with dorothy, "there is no place like home." even WITH the pile of mail that i need to sort through AND the gross amount of work that i am backed up on . . . still, there is no other place i would rather be.
