kelsey & i are home!
we had no trouble overcoming the jetlag on the way back {thanks to lots of movies on the flight & the excitement of seeing loved ones!} as soon as we got back, we - ate cookies, took showers, & had a dance party with ally & kate.
it is really hard to imagine we've been home for a week now. abby, guion, & alex all came in on friday afternoon. on saturday, maria, matt, & erik come over & we had a party tubbing on the lake with aunt b, ems, & uncle jeff. also, we threw another party saturday night to celebrate the end of ma-maw's chemo & radiation treatments. the whole almond, johnson, farson, & now pratt family sector were involved. on sunday, eva & peter came for lunch {these two got me so excited about new zealand!} & by 5:00 p.m. aunt shelly, sheridan, & michael had arrived. it was a weekend full of entertaining, but we all loved being together/ seeing friends & family we hadn't seen for a long time.

today at work i thought to myself, i took a gap year to do what exactly? i was working on pricing these little christmas elves, wondering what i got myself into! these next few months will certainly be interesting & i'm so curious to see what it's going to be like not having school in the fall.
i feel like i'm at a weird place right now, but i feel good about my decision. i'm just waiting. . . waiting to see what happens!

p.s. did you know that more american zookeepers get injured by zebras than tigers each year? {thanks jared diamond of guns, germs, & steel for the random fact of the day. i'm working on finally finishing this book - after an entire year now! i'm not going to lie, sometimes it's just so hard to want to read about seeds for some-140 pages!}
