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!)
