After a much-needed getaway to Walt Disney World, we've been taking it easy. We've both been adjusting back to our schedules and curing the last of our vacation bugs. I finally feel like the worst is over for me, but it looks as though Robert is giving up one illness and catching mine instead (bless his heart). Although adjusting back to the real world isn't the best, I still enjoy the week after a vacation. All the memories are fresh in your mind, and even though you're back at work, you still have a little of that vacation buzz left. It's during that week that I look through all our photos, find a home for all the mementos we've purchased, deliver the presents we've picked up for family and friends, and of course, catch up on all my missed cuddles with Alice. Then of course, there's the comfort of coming home to your own bed! While I love going on vacation with hubby, especially to Disney World, I'm usually having too much fun to actually rest. Sleeping in your own bed after a long trip is indescribable! With my week finally behind me, I know that's where Alice and I will be spending my Sunday and Monday off. How do you survive your post-vacation work week? Do you do anything special to keep the memories alive?
