Hi, finally back here to say hello after a long day.
I made a road trip up to St. Petersburg and met my DSister and our 1st Cousin for lunch. Then we wandered around the mall across the street all afternoon. I checked out a nearby store, one which has closed here but is still open there, to see if I could get some of the shoes DH uses that work for his feet, and while I was there DSis found me there on the way home to her house. So another hour or so of conversation out in the parking lot.
It was wonderful to catch up.
Trip up was most of 2 hours and back the same. The last part of that was a bit hard for me since it was pitch black and I don't do as well in the dark...but made it home fine with just one detour about 1/4 mile from my house when I turned at the wrong street.
Thank goodness for my Gar men.
Back home I was a bit scared because DH wasn't here, the blinds were open and no lights on in the dark house...and his truck was gone. All day his phone went to voice mail so I'd been picturing him laying somewhere in a ditch with an overturned truck. Checked his computer to find there was a doings at church tonight so pretty much knew that was where he was... and earlier he had turned off his phone when he was in an important meeting and forgot to turn it back on all day.
I told him never to do that again, leave a note or at least turn his phone on. I asked if he wasn't concerned about me getting there safely and back and he said well he'd prayed for me to go and come back safely and just left it at that. You can tell who's the worry wart of the family, it's surely not him!
By the way, DD has a goldendoodle, adopted because there was supposed to be less shedding and less allergies. Ha! We figure she's more golden than doodle and she has her clipped to about an inch all over. Then they had a bunny for a while (and I'm highly allergic to THAT) and now they have a cat. I just have dust bunnies here.
