how do i look? refreshed? relaxed? romanced?

I am the proud owner of a sane mind.  My darling mother gave me some ging for Christmas, I promptly spent it. All of it.  It supplemented our January income, and purchased a ticket to Phoenix.  For four glorious days & nights I hogged a queen size bed, talked non-stop, played on an ipad, laughed, vented, cried, colored hair, tried some gluten-free bread (once), slept in every single day, stayed up late every single night, stared down 2 bonfires, took pictures of every cactus, enjoyed a movie, ate cake & ice cream, and more than one peanut butter sandwich a day.  Honestly?  I absolutely felt spoiled the entire time.  And, I only cried for missing my kids on the first day.  To top it all off?  Habtamu had a bouquet of red tulips for me in the car.  YOU ARE LOOKING AT ONE HAPPY CAMPER, RIGHT HERE.
 we drove out to superstition mountain(s?)
stocked up on nutritious food at fry's. like cake. and ice cream.  that i didn't share.

deanna built a fire. friday night and sunday night.

she has a drawer for coffee filters. just coffee filters. and she pretty much just has coffee for guests.

How Awesome! I am a teeny bit envious though. I could use some warm weather and sunshine and vacation...
And tulips! Habtamu got it right!
