We're here! We arrived yesterday afternoon after only about six hours in the car. Mom had Sunday dinner ready and we ate pot roast, took a walk, watched the girls play horseshoes, unpacked, and sat in the grass under the pine trees. Kristen and Ava came down from Denver and it was so nice to all sit around the table together and eat pie.
Joey is starting to recover from being in a little kennel for two days, Daisy is ecstatic to be on solid ground again, and the ache in my lower back is slowly subsiding. I slept better last night than I have in many days, and feel like a whole new woman.
Toben and I are sitting at a coffee shop, checking email and such since there's no internet connection at Mom and Dad's; blogs may be a bit hit or miss for a while. I did take pictures on the road, and will get them downloaded later and up and posted the next time we need some coffee.
We're off to buy kitty litter, dog food, and a hairbrush, since I forgot mine. Then I plan to take a nap in the hammock and listen to the wind in the tops of the pine trees for the afternoon...
