A Hallmark Moment

I feel as if I just starred in a Hallmark movie. I drove 1000 miles to get to Tulsa, racing to arrive before the second big snowfall hit. I was sick but knew if I didn't get there in the next 32 hours, I'd be stuck for another week. I was ready to be home.

The car was hastily loaded, including the cat and his paraphernalia. The one thing Hallmark would have changed would be the roads. I had clear roads, dry and no snow. HM probably would have added a storm to drive through. Maybe the big snow starting earlier than predicted. I prefer my version:)

101 fever, coughing, and ahhh, it felt so good to be home. The cat, having been away 5+ months (and a good sport about it) immediately fell into old routines. And me. I fell in love again right then and there. It was so good to see my husband.

As I lay in bed last night, I couldn't help smiling. I have a lot to think about. Or maybe I should say I have a lot to feel.

I'm sorry you are sick, but I am for you that you are home with your hubby!

I totally get your post....it's hard to be physically in one place and your heart in another. I am glad that you are having time with your hubby! And it's good that the cat is a good sport too!

Glad you are home and with the hubs! I know that always makes me feel better to be beside Joe!

Don't compare Pittsburgh to Vegas!! I take offense at that Aunt Jennie!! Being a part of the small, yet big, moments of little people's lives is priceless and worth the effort. At least I hope it is! We soooo appreciate all you sacrifice for being here :-) xo
