Where We've Been Hiding

Coming home has been quite the adjustment. Not only did we have to adapt our sleeping patterns to the Pacific Standard Time Zone, which took longer than either of us expected after being away for four months, we had to get back into the swing of a daily routine and try to slide back into social situations after being alone for so long. As it turns out, after being each others primary sounding board for so long our conversation skills and interpretations of social situations were a bit rusty, much to our embarrassment around the dinner table Christmas day. 

After the gifts were opened, Christmas decorations put away, and our winter clothes pulled out of storage, we easily slipped into a daily routine of waking late, lounging in our pajamas, and showering a bit too infrequently, for which I will not apologize. As it turns out, the reason people secure full time employment, in addition to paying their bills and for the sheer joy of working forty hours a week, is to avoid falling into this sedentary lifestyle of horrible daytime television, matted greasy hair, and insomnia resulting from the act of sleeping until two in the afternoon. 

Without rules or responsibilities, it appears the only way back to a world of cleanliness, where blog posts get written and the dished get washed, may be to pull ourselves up by the ol' bootstraps, or at least start holding each other more accountable. With that in mind, our intention is to get back into the swing of things here, finish up our outstanding posts on the marvelous things we saw and did in England during the last week of our trip, and follow that up with all the juicy details you've been dying to know; What would we do differently next time? How did we manage to pay for all of it? Where are we off to next? Who got gifts and what did we bring them? 

Yes, all this and more coming your way over the next few weeks - so long as we don't relapse into our pajamas.
