What a long one! Two days of travel but we are home again. Thanks for all your prayers over this long awaited and quickly fleeting trip to meet our Grandson. We made it. And here is a very tired ME, consoling Roger for the last few miles as we headed for the last 40 minutes to home.
It was a pretty quick day. But the last few miles always the longest. We played “What am I thinking of?” And it lasted many miles! It takes a while to guess things like: Dust, Catholicism, Boppy, Cell Phone Tower, and Brewery. We had quite a few laughs.
At home we unloaded of course, which seemed to take forever in the cold wind. And I fixed spaghetti, which I’d been craving. Called my neighbor/house sitter/Little Bit looker-after and gave her a few surprises (and payment) for taking care of things, and got the remote back to the house/garage so I can get back in/out of the house tomorrow. It’s so nice to have someone to take care of these things.
We watched Below Deck and I went to bed at 8:00. I feel somewhat rested this morning and ready to tackle the things ahead. I had a bad dream though. I dreamed that the person in the position before me in my job, came back and fired me saying I was making too many mistakes. I kept saying “what mistakes?” They couldn’t tell me what they were as there were not that many other than just human ones that everyone does (+ or – 3%, lol). I realized I was being cast out because they liked someone else better than me. And came home and told George and we went to call our lawyer. Then I woke up and realized it was just a dream, LOL. Thank goodness. I like my job and want to keep it. I guess we dream of our fears. I’ve feared that I would lose the job because my grandson was born during the most critical time of the year. Of course, my company has been very kind to me through this. I’ve worried about this for some time because I am a responsible person and want to meet my obligations. And I’m happy to say that everyone realized family responsibility does indeed come first and my horribly timed vacation was approved. I was prepared to lose my job over it if I had to. But of course I’ll also be expected to pick up the pieces and get the quarter and the year closed as if nothing ever happened. I will try to do just that as best as I can. I will do what is humanly possible and will give it a few extra hours. And as George says, “You will do what a reasonable salaried person would do in this situation”. So yeah I won’t be living there but I’ll be trying to get the boxes ticked off the best I can. The first order of business though is getting the next payroll done and making up for being off last week. Then I can move forward to the rest.
Also there is a LOT of stuff to be done at home. Big things and little things. But we have a lot of time to work on it and through it. Plenty to keep me busy for a while. Most of it fun things. I will come up for air about March! lol
Anyway, glad to be home but I miss my Little Roo. Katy sent this to me yesterday of Findlay watching him in his swing.
So I better be off to work. Gotta shower and get ready first so as not to scare anyone. I’ve not even had coffee yet. I came to let you all know I was home while it was brewing and kept typing as usual!

Hello love, SO glad to see your home and had a good sleep just hope all is well when you get into the office this morning. By the time you read this you will have finished your coffee and hopefully you’ve started to move into work mode. Love that photo of Finlay and the baby. It is good that Kate is letting them be together, it will be lovely when Roo is growing up to have Finlay as his protector and playmate….
Did Roger settle last night ? Hope he didn’t have you or George up in the wee small hours. Or as we would have said in Scotland. The wee sma hoors !!!
Hope your day goes to plan with few hiccups. Please don’t go overworking your hours your only human not a machine…..much love flying your way. Xxx

Glad you are home!!!!! I loved reading your daily posts about ‘Little Roo.’ He is one blessed little fella. Take care through the coming days. I know you have a lot to do at work but you need to rest too after that whirlwind trip. Love ya.
