I guess you figured I was home since I wrote the post about leaving the computer and not being able to post til I got home.
Three week and two days . . way too long to be gone but it was so hard to leave. When I got up yesterday morning, Addie said “What are you doing?” I told her I had to get dressed and she started crying “I don’t want you to leave!” I explained that my home is in Texas and I have to go home but I’ll be back. She seemed like she was going to go back to sleep. I took the dog out and when I took him back to her room, she was just sobbing. Oh . . that made it very hard to leave! I told her to go get in bed with mom and dad and by the time they all came out, she was fine.
I’ve been telling Vince we should go back next week so I can get my computer but so far, he isn’t buying it.
Chad works right through Thanksgiving and, for the most part, only has Christmas Day off and I think sometimes he has to go in on Christmas night so going for the holidays really adds to their “busy-ness” and I feel like we’re making an already busy time more frustrating. If we had our own place there . . it would be different but we know that isn’t happening.
So . . if there’s some decent weather in December, we may go back for a few days.
It’s nice to be home . . see Vince and Rita, sit in my own chair . . it will be wonderful to take a shower in my own shower and sleep in my own bed but oh, how I miss that little girl.

I am so glad you made it home safely. I don’t like to travel that far by myself. Did not like it when I had to go to meetings across the state by myself!
Life is full of choices I don’t want to make, too. LOL I bet you had a lot of thinking and planning time as you drove. I love to take long trips by myself. Or even short ones. So what’s the first thing to go in the freeze dryer? =)

When Addie gets a little older she can come stay with you for a week.
Glad you made it home safely. I spent Saturday with my new little granddaughter and it was hard to leave her after a few hours, knowing I will see her again next week. I can’t imagine what you’re going through! Thinking happy thoughts for a warm December so you can visit again!
Did Rita clean house real good?
Glad you are home safe .. This is what we do around our house : The holidays have to be spent with my daughter’s inlaws (or its total hell for my daughter and its not worth that to me). So for Christmas we celebrate in January after all the hullabaloo is over with; we come in with presents or take them shopping. Which they love then they can spend time with us and us with them. When we shop we buy things they like and will wear. So its a win win for us .. Its so hard to leave them, but we know they have a life there and we miss them so much !!!
