We had a safe but very tiring trip and I'm glad to be back. I do very well when I have a routine and getting back to mine feels good. The burial was short and sweet without the same stress and pain that much of hubby's family experienced in February when his father passed away. We visited my mother's grave and my DD and I made butterflies to place on her grave. That was nice and gave me some still needed closure. I was surprised at that since she passed away so very long ago.
I enjoyed some special mother daughter times with DD which I will treasure forever. That was wonderful! We also visited my dear aunt twice; once on the way to New York and once on the way back. We all enjoyed just getting to spend time with her. She has been like a mother to me for many years. We are blessed to have her in our lives.
My DD and I planned our next trip to be together so that parting wasn't so painful. She will come down to visit us at the end of June. We will celebrate our birthdays together. I'm looking forward to her visit.
Hubby and I are exhausted by the pace that we kept during our trip. We both agree that we would have enjoyed some relaxation time but the schedule was so tight that we didn't really get the rest that we had hoped. Maybe we'll just take a long weekend together sometime this summer. We'll see.
I missed everyone here at SP and I'm glad to be back!
