Homecoming


Homecoming
Originally uploaded by ed_roth.

Ahhh, to be home at last! Eddie and I got home last night around 8:00 with Karen and Heather there to pick us up. What a great reunion that was!! Eddie ran to Karen and almost wiped her out and Heather ran at me full tilt - back together again on home turf - NOTHING better!! The whole trip back in total was about 28 hours so we were tired but definitely excited to be back and didn't go to sleep until after 1 a.m. I woke up today (only because the phone rang) about 12:30 and Eddie woke up at 3:00 in the afternoon! Sooooo, it looks like it will be a few days before we are readjusted.
After being away for 4 months it was so wonderful to be back surrounded by familiar faces, voices, signs, food, etc. etc. I'll write more later once we've settled a bit. Ahhh, to smell my own coffee, out of my own mug ... now that's morning! (even if it did start after noon!)

WELCOME HOME!!! What a WONDERFUL picture. :) Try to get over jet-lag and let Karen take care of you all! (You go, Ka!) See you in a few weeks and hope you are over your jet lag by then.

Eddie is my man...good for him sleeping until 3PM! :)

WELCOME HOME!!! Gave me goosebumps reading this. Glad to get you back in the States. Does it feel like you are in a strange house or what? When I come back from a long trip, the house always smells like when we moved in. NEw but familiar.

Hey your back blogging...there was a bit of a time lapse there.

And your back in the states - wow. I hope you had a wonderful time in oz. I may be asking you some advice on things if we move to California next year =)

Looking forward to reading more about you settling back
