It's good to be home

Although I always enjoy going to Vegas, it is good to be home. A week is an awfully long time to be gone. I opted to not sleep last night other than about a 20 minute cat nap. I was a little frustrated since we didn't leave on time as I expected. When I stopped to fill up the rental car with gas, the pump didn't print a receipt so I had to go inside to get one wasting more time. But we made it despite the lengthy lines we had wait in at the airport. I tried dozing on the plane but it was difficult with a child screaming at the top of their lungs. Once I gave up on sleep, I started reading my new Janet Evanovich book. After we stopped in Denver, we moved up closer to the front of the plane. I continued reading and got close to finishing the book. I'm probably 3/4 of the way through. We picked up the car from long term parking, stop at Arby's to pick up some sandwiches and finally arrived home a little after 1:00 p.m. I gave some attention the animals, called my aunt and finally hit the bed. I slept for about 4 hours or so. Although I probably could have stayed in bed, I made myself get up so I would be able to sleep tonight. I'm going to church in the morning, but I'm sure it will be the later service.
I picked up a lot of stuff for the reunion when I got back, but I'm putting it on hold until tomorrow. The next few days will be focused on getting the book done. I picked up Thai Kitchen for dinner - I didn't even consider cooking. I need to go to the store, but that will be put off until tomorrow as well. I'm going to recuperate tonight.

I just thought of something when you were talking about your plane ride....I accidently spilled my Dr.Pepper on the guy in shorts beside me and tried desperately to wipe,or sopp up the cold wet D.P. off of his mid-section.EMBARRASSING myself even MORE!lol
I couldn't stop apologizing even after we touched down....but he was a good sport.

it does ALWAYS feel good to get home. I can't remember a trip I took that I wasn't breathing a sigh of relief to land at home and walk in my home at the end of it all.

Did you get my envelope? I warned you it wasn't anything special! :o)
