My Aussie family is gone. It's a sad, sad day. To say we had a great time is an understatement. It was just too good for words. I'll be posting about all the great times we had as a tribute to the Brewins. It will be good to look back on all the great times we had.

My house is quiet...very very quiet. Almost like I've lost a few kids...I keep counting just to make sure I've got all mine. The kids are sort of wandering around the house aimlessly not quite sure what they should be doing...and me you ask? I am back to my afternoon ritual.

Lunch at my computer, reading up on my blogs, catching a little "me" time.

Lunch is leftover Lo Mein from Empire Wok in Jordan.....oh yummy. I had to polish it off for Mel, it was our favorite. You haven't lived until you've had this. I made sure to eat 2/3 of my plate before I took the picture to avoid looking piggish :) Mel, I thought you'd need this reminder.

Currently they are sitting at MSP airport. We're having a bit of a wind/rain/snow/sleet storm today. After's what Minnesota should be known for. Their flight was set to deaprt at 1:50pm and is currently pushed back to 3:30pm. Part of me wants to run up there...I could bring some desert, Diet Coke with Lime, and have just one more afternoon chat with Mel. I'm going to miss those the most. What mom gets to sit down every day and just talk about life, kids, marriage, goals, homeschooling with a like-minded lady. It was great for me to be reminded and refreshed in the "why I'm doing what I'm doing" area of life. Everyone needs that from time to time...and I got it for 6 whole weeks!!!

What's really hard now is I have no idea when we will be in eachother's company again. Could be 2 years, could be 3 years....I hate to say it but could be even 4 years. We're both not sure where life will take us in the next few years which leaves us with a lot of uncertainty.

Until next time...I will leave you with this little pre-post trivia question....

Who Is This??? and What Happened???

Lo Mein is gone forever, Pepsi is empty, My house is empty...I'm going to go cry now....
