Back to the Organized Chaos

I am home! It's so good to be home after being gone for a month. Right now I am in sort of a culture shock. People are speaking English around me. (I still am saying, "Gracious" out of habit all of the time. When we were at the Miami airport, Brock ordered his food in Spanish, but they did not care there.) I don't have to throw my toilet paper in the trash. I can take long, hot showers if I want.

However, I am a little overwhelmed by all I have to do right now. My house is a mess. I don't have many clean clothes. My Christmas tree is still up! My phone and computer are not working right. In the meantime, I am driving Brock around everywhere because we realized on vacation that his license expired. Oh, did I mention that we had a pipe bust at our house while we were gone? Our wonderful assistant, John, discovered it and took care of it before we got back. It could have been much worse.

All of this sort of thing is not out of the ordinary for us, though. We live in a sort of organized chaos. It will all get done. I'm not sure if it will all get done before we leave for shows in Knoxville on Tuesday, but eventually it will get done. I am so excited to tell you about everything that we experienced while we were gone! I will begin tomorrow hopefully. Of course, many pictures will be coming...
