I went to visit DB & family in mid-FL a week ago, had a great time. If I ever win the lottery, I'm going to buy a Winter escape there. Next part of my trip was to travel to AL last Monday, to visit DS & DDIL. No more than got there, when DH sent me email that DGrS had gotten into trouble with the law. He's just not been the same, mentally, since his tour of Iraq. Seems he & his DW hid his abuse until it got out of hand and she had to call the sheriff. His DSis (our eldest DGrD) was so upset, and is 6 mos pregnant, so I felt I needed to be back here to lend whatever support is needed. This was okay, as a had soon realized that 4 days visiting folks with fragile health was too much. So, after a short 24 hour visit, I was back on a plane heading home. The flight delays out of Atlanta were horrendous, but at least I got home. Some travelers never got into the airport in time to catch the last flight out. Our plane was only 1/2 full.
Also resolved not to bunk with folks who have radically different sleeping hours. Both households go to sleep around 2-3 AM, then sleep till noon. DH & I both are up early, then not off during 10 PM news. If we are in a hotel, it's not a problem - we can always entertain ourselves. Very hard for me to sleep with TV blaring, so I was very tired when I got home. But - a nice nap on the sofa with my furbaby yesterday and I'm back to normal.
So - except for missing the temps in high 60s, I'm glad to be home. So far, no one has needed me, so I'm off to get my computer glasses repaired - hate looking out of bifocals to see this screen.
