Back Home....Cue Craziness

Home again, home again, jiggety jig!

Friends, you deserve a post {or six} about my little trip to Nicaragua. We are in agreement about this. But right now, the introverted part of me {gasp! Introvert!?!?!?} wants to process the trip a bit more before sharing all about it. Right now I feel like I'm going through the motions of being home while my internal conversation is stuck on an island in Central America. Gotta do some thinking, this girl does.

I will tell you that the trip was way more incredible than I had anticipated, that I would go back for another week in a heartbeat, that I want to go back next year, and that the wildlife there is pretty, um, exciting. Yep, we'll go with exciting.
Here is a short, incomplete list of the wildlife that we found in our room alone. Oh, and let us also mention that the first three invaded our room within the space of 5 minutes one night. Did we sleep well? Eh...

  • scorpion {see picture, post mortem}

  • frog {in Heidi's bed, no less}

  • cockroach {also in Heidi's bed. It did not warrant a picture, because we killed it too quickly and we were more focused on the above-mentioned frog.}
  • gecko {there were several outside, but one came in for our last night}
  • another scorpion {we thought it was dead, but then it ran away outside-eek!}

I promise, more details and pictures of the trip will be shared! Have patience :)

Now that I'm home, it is Go Time! I may have alluded to some upcoming changes, and I still can't say everything that I'm dying to, but let's just say that next week I may be able to share! Which means that this week is...cray cray. That's crazy for those of you who don't speak abreve ;)

Anyway, things are moving quickly, and I'm both excited and overwhelmed! I'm excited that things are moving forward, and I'm overwhelmed by the reality of how fast things are moving and by the amount of work needed. But it will all come together wonderfully, I'm sure, and when it does, you will know!

I leave you with one last picture from Nicaragua. Say hello to our friendly neighborhood volcano!

Seriously, Nicaragua is one of the most beautiful places, and I can't wait to share more of my adventures with you!
