home again

i'm back home! and how lovely that is. i spent 6 hours traveling to the airport, waiting at the airport, in the airplane, and traveling away from the airport. but it was better than driving 9 hours by myself. and, that time could have been cut down by an hour or more as the flight was delayed 30 minutes as we sat on the tarmack, and traffic wasn't bad from my mom's to the airport so the extra time we alloted wasn't really necessary.

my son got home an hour after i got home so when i went out to greet him he was overjoyed to see mom was already home! he must have gave me 10 hugs in the first 5 minutes alone. he squealed and squeaked with delight. i could tell he was happy to see me, and i was happy to see him too.

since hubby and son were not home when i arrived home, i was able to unpack my bags, throw in a load of laundry in the washing machine, and clean up all the papers, markers, toys and other misc items strewn around the house. my hubby is a good dad, but good housekeeper he is not! he gets a pass tho, cuz he probably didn't even see it anyway. one of the benefits of limited vision. he's not expected to do much around the house.

i'll share more later about my time with my mom, but for now i just wanted to check in and let my readers know that i am back. and i am happy to be home again. its a good thing!

Gail,

So glad you had a good trip! Nice you could have some brief "transition time" once you got home, too!

thanks for the welcome home.

carrie, you are so right that its nice to have some transition time. when i first found out that hubby wouldn't be home when i got in, i was bummed. but you know, it was nice to be able to spruce up the house a bit and get unpacked before he walked in the door and the hugs and kisses ensued! i was able to give him my full attention =)
