the Visit

Friday, March 13, 2009

Oh my. Here we are in mid-March and I never updated about the family visit. It was wonderful! It was also exhausting, especially for my hubby. He drove for 12 hours overnight only stopping for gas and occasional bathroom visits back on Tuesday night 2/17. Then the next day he did it again, driving from SC to PA with our son, daughter-in-law, 2-yr.-old granddaughter, and their Jack Russell Terrier. Of course, on the way back the following week, it was the exhausting round trip all over again. As much as I love their dog, it was hard getting used to having one here again for a week. We've had dogs over the years, but our last one passed away several years ago, and I never did get another one. We wanted to be able to travel freely so we could visit our new granddaughter! "Killer" is not invited back. He did too much lifting of his leg in the house! We never experienced that because we had female dogs. Every other member of the family was wonderful! Unfortunately, but to be expected for mid-February near Philadelphia, it was quite cold. We had snow and sleet and freezing rain during various days they were here. The few nice weather days we had were used by mommy and daddy to go sightseeing. I had to get Avon work done while they were out, so that was my one day to try to recoup something of a normal schedule. The lack of personal time and unusual schedule was worth it. I hope we can go down to them near the end of summer when Abby's birthday comes up again. I'd love to see her at a party again. She'll turn 3 on September 1, 2009

    Abby is such a cutie pie!!!! Love the pics!! Glad they made it up finally & you all enjoyed your time together....well, perhaps minus Killer's visit! emoticon
    Wish we could've seen them, but I understand how hectic trips home usually are. We've been there, done that ourselves for years! Don't wanna go there again, that's for sure!
