The Homecoming

When I got home from work Friday night, I didn't make it all the way in through the back door when Ozzie promptly overturned his waterbowl, sending a minor flood across the entire kitchen.

I feared a repeat performance when I arrived home this evening after being away for about 45 hours. Instead, he was a barking moving target. But now he is lying beside me, curled near my hip, content to have me back within his visual range and furry reach.

I had an incredible weekend. In fact, that seems much too weak a word to describe Friday evening through late afternoon today. Thank you especially to The MonkeyGirl for once again being my roomie and making this such a wonderful way to start a new year.

And thank you to all those fearsoCheck Spellingme women who laughed, ate, cropped, shared, sang, traveled, joked, danced, snacked, shopped, searched, loaded, unloaded, and pooled money in Powerball with me. (We didn't win. But guess what: NEITHER DID ANYONE ELSE!!

So, I can't retire yet and I DO have to go to work tomorrow. I haven't yet downloaded my pictures from the weekend so there are some incredible laughs in my immediate future -- and something I'll laugh at again and again as I preserve in the more distant future.

Coal didn't even move a muscle when I walked in the door. Of course, he was crated and Mr. M wore him out with a huge walk this afternoon. I can't wait to sleep in my own bed despite all of the fun we had! Thanks for being my "chimp"munk bunkie!

You two sound like you had loads of fun. In addition to great food and friends, I hope libations were available.

One of these days, I will change status from scrap booker wanna-be to the real thing.

Glad you had a good time! Can't wait to hear more about it or see the pics!

I woke Goldie from a nap but she did come downstairs to greet me. I'm not sure how much she missed me since she slept on my pillow while I was gone and has now had to surrender said pillow back to me. The Mr was glad to see me. He had had enough of handling the teenagers by himself.

My pillowtap mattress felt DIVINE ... but having a Yorkie curled up at my calves felt even better. :-)

I had a fabulous weekend and would highly recommend it to anyone.
