I'm at KCI, waiting for my flight. My path is the reverse of the one that brought me here, arriving about 4:30 this afternoon In Albuquerque. My friend will meet me with my car, we will probably have a quick bite, and after dropping him of at his house, I'll begin the long three hour drive back to home. I'm gonna be very tired by 9:00 or 10:00 tonight when I fall into bed.
Allan says the furry babies have missed me. Actually, I think he called them "a bit psycho." They're not eating well, not always making it outside for potty business, and not sleeping through the nights. Obviously they are missing their mommy. I guess that when I make the next trip to bring the furniture, I'm driving so they can come along. Heck, no, they're not spoiled! And not psychotic, just neurotic!
Caroline and Laura drove me to the airport this morning, opened the door, and more or less rolled me out on the curb before gunning the engine and squealing away! Can you believe it?!?!? I think they were actually glad to be rid of me!! No, I told them not to come in to wait, but to go on and have a good day. They were good hosts and we had a lot of laughs in the last three days.
Last night we had dinner at a neighbor's home. It was nice because I got to spend time with 4 good friends. G & K had been my neighbors since 1977. I watched their daughter grow from an infant to the outgoing, lovely young woman she is now. Along the way we have enjoyed lots of laughter in the good times, cried together of losing other neighbors, and it is hard to believe that the special relationship of "neighbor" is over. C & L enjoyed the evening, too. They knew these neighbors, but not well, and I hope they will find time to spend together in the coming months. It would be good for all of them, I think.
So, everyone, I hope your weekend is super. Take care and don't do anything I wouldn't!
