I got back from Arizona today. It was a nice trip, but it’s always good to be home. I haven’t put pictures anywhere yet, but I will post them up as soon as I can.
There are a lot of things that I saw for the first time. I saw the Grand Canyon, an exotic animal place, and more (though I must admit to not remembering everything). It was my first time ever in Arizona, and I loved it.
Not all of the trip was happy, though. You know those trips where everything goes wrong? Yeah, that was this trip. Absolutely everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. First off, I realized that I forgot my pajamas — two hours away from home. What did we do? We went to the store and bought a t-shirt and shorts for the week.
The pajamas thing was a minor incident for the whole week. When we got to the Painted Desert, I burned until my neck was as red as my shirt. What fun that was! I’ve spent the whole week with a red neck and now peeling is in the process. Big time. The aloe has done nothing for it. It got re-burned every time I was in the sun, I’m sure. Needless to say, I decided against blow drying my hair this week. Too hot and too hard on my neck.
I still live with my parents, so I know a thing or two about how it feels to not be able to escape. I got nagged by my mother every single morning, and it wasn’t pretty. If it wasn’t one thing, it was another. Not fun. I wanted to escape, but I couldn’t because I shared a room with them. Most of the time I can just escape to my room, but not this week. Nope. Not at all.
I know, it sounds like I didn’t have much fun, but really, I did. I enjoyed seeing the sights, and I had a lot of fun telling people that I texted during the week about it. Like I said before, it was a nice trip, but nothing beats home sweet home.
