I'M BACK!!!!

It’s been almost three weeks but I have now returned from my European tour. I have to say, as wonderful as the accommodations were, it is nice to be back in my own bed with my own pillows. It’s also nice to see my doggies. Oh, yes. I said “doggies.” After not much discussion and lots of snuggles, Husband and I decided that Cody was as much a part of our family as we were and there was no way we were giving him up. I went out today and bought a new bowl, dog bed, retractable leash for the country and Cody is not officially one of us.

Europe was amazing. Poland was rich in history and the wedding was beautiful. Husband’s fluency was incredibly helpful in France and the best part of London was seeing Mara, Justin and the world’s cutest baby. Even Husband was totally charmed by the baby and constantly wanted to play with her – even at 3am. I imagine that will quickly change if we have one of our own.

The downside of coming home after a long vacation (other than the huge amounts of laundry) is that your body takes forever to figure out what time it is. Despite working until 11pm both Thursday and Friday nights (oh, yeah, the other downside is the tremendous amount of work the piles up), my eyes popped open at 6am and I could not fall back asleep. I am exhausted and cranky because now. Husband is napping, but my fear is that a nap will just increase my jet-lag so I am trying very hard to stay awake. Grrr.

We thought the best part of your trip to London was visiting us, too! We loved seeing you and miss you lots. And Justin will love your own little baby. Though we love you both all the more for your affection for our little lass.

Welcome back! Sounds like a fantastic trip, and I can't wait to see you and hear more. And congrats on Cody. Good thing you don't bond so much with the Haven patients. ha ha.
