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 there was a family crisis, so I felt I needed to be back home to lend whatever support is needed. This was okay, as I 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 nod 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 was back to normal and finally got unpacked.
So - except for missing the temps in high 60s, I'm glad to be home. So far, no one has needed me. Biggest issue was that my computer glasses broke just before I left, so I had to make a run for new frames this AM. I have bifocals for shopping etc., but it doesn't take long for my neck to get a crick.
Just about ready to set up to bind the postcard wall hanging. I picked up a cafe curtain rod and will hang this above window, so that the light can shine through the hanging.
