After 32 hours of traveling, 4 plane changes and a trip through customs, I finally made it HOME last week! :)

It feels so good to be back in the U.S! I haven't done much since I arrived except visit with family, cuddle my babies, and eat! I took my first trip to the grocery store yesterday and it was wonderful! I bought all of the foods I haven't been able to get for the last year: cottage cheese, good milk, ice cream, and cereal. Of course, I've also been to Target and I loved every minute I spent strollling up and down the aisles. I still haven't made it to Wal-Mart but it's definitely on the agenda.

It has been so good to be back with Oscar and Grace. I had been anticipating how they would react when they first saw me and I have to admit it wasn't anything like I expected. They both acted a little stand-offish for the first few minutes. Oscar has accepted me back with open arms paws, but Grace is taking a little bit of time to warm up to me. She's always been my baby so I think she's trying to show me how mad she is at me for leaving her for so long. She's a little priss so I shouldn't be surprised at all. I'm sure they're both tired of the endless kisses and cuddling, but I just can't stop! :)

I don't have a lot planned this week except a doctor's appointment and getting ready for my trip to Europe. I'm excited to see the doctor and hoping he'll schedule another ultrasound for me. I'm also super excited to go to Europe and see Jesse, though I am dreading the trip. At least it's only 14 hours travel time- that's nothing compared to the trip home. It was long but definitely worth it. :)

welcome home!! She'll warm up to you -- it sounds like you described, and she is just giving you the cold shoulder lol
Ruger does that to us if we are gone for too long during the DAY!
Enjoy your down time before traveling again!

I'm so glad that you had a safe trip back. That is such a LONG trek.

Calli and Rocky were really stand-offish towards Ryan when they first seen him too. I'm sure she'll warm up soon.

I would definitely miss Target too. I'm sure your family is so excited to have you back. Enjoy your time before your trip to Europe
