Hi. We're back. The trip was awesome, thanks for asking!
Since I have already uploaded 497 photos to flickr, I won't bore you with repeating my favorite shots here. I honestly couldn't pick my favorites if I tried. I took SO. MANY. PICTURES. Also, I am sort of extremely jetlagged and am having trouble keeping my eyes open right now.
So how about I just borrow Janet's patented Love/Hate format instead?
Love: Coming home to my mouthwash and electric toothbrush, both of which were left behind because they took up too much space. My mouth feels so deliciously clean.
Hate: Having to clean the bathroom sink myself.
Love: Sleeping in my own bed, which features a real queen mattress and not two twin mattresses shoved together with a giant, uncomfortable seam down the middle.
Hate: Having to think about what to make for dinner tonight instead of which restaurant to go to.
Love: Having more than two clean outfit options to choose from.
Hate: The enormous pile of laundry staring at me from the corner of the bedroom. And the rest of the laundry still in the suitcases.
Love: Snuggling with my kitties, who actually missed us and are being super affectionate and cute.
Hate: Coming back to cold, rainy weather. I liked the Mediterranean winter better.
Love: Being back in touch with the rest of the world.
Hate: My overflowing inbox.
Love: That getting coffee this morning didn't require a special metro ride to a Starbucks and a very confused half-English, half-Spanish conversation about what a " Cafe Americano" really means.
Hate: Not having anywhere to practice my Spanish anymore.
Love: Getting a sesame bagel with cream cheese this morning.
Hate: That I'll have to go to the gym to work off all those calories, instead of walking around Barcelona for exercise.
And finally, I LOVE that we have finally informed all our family and friends, so I can now show you this picture**:
(**Will be getting resized on Thursday so it can go on the correct finger)
