Who put the extra in extraordinary?

So, if ordinary is usual, basic, plain, etc... why is extraordinary beyond the ordinary and special? Why wouldn't extraordinary be a more ordinary than just usual ordinary? Do we get to count it as an oxymoron?

Well, needless to say, I'm home. We have collected the pooch from the country kennel. The last load of trip laundry is in the wash and I've spent the entire day practicing my couch potato skills.

I love my family. I really do. But the chaos and drama that surround them is simply exhausting.

We did happen to see on the atlas a small town in Missouri named "knob lick". My husband really wanted to stop by on our way home...

Ah, my daughter just pulled another tooth. That's the third one she's pulled in the last 10 days. That's my cue. See you all tomorrow!

I just got home today, too, and am doing the laundry. I didn't spend much time with family on this trip, but I know what you mean. You love them but they drive you nuts. What can we do except hope they aren't equally puzzled by us?

Welcome home!

Sometimes vacations are more stressful than real life. I actually have taken vacations where I have gone nowhere at all. Welcome home!
