The two hour time difference was horrible...even taking Advil PM to help us sleep...did not help...we were wired and awake at 3 every morning! We could not fall back to sleep! Both flights were turbulent and so early that we never seemed to fully recover. We left our house at 4 in the morning to get to Denver and did the same thing to get home! We have tons of travel points and usually use them to fly first class...that helped...but we never caught up on sleep! I am an uneasy flier anyway...and the turbulence...OMG!
Then I had the added worry of leaving Lucy and Roxie for almost 6 days...for the first time. I know people think that kitties are easy to leave but this was the first time that my girls were alone together without me to monitor and supervise their still shaky relationship! We have an amazing cat-sitter who came in twice a day and we have these teeny little cameras in the house...we could watch them and see what they were doing 24/7. That helped us relax a bit...the girls seem closer...and haven't left our side since we got in yesterday! Lucy knows this routine but I think little Roxie might have thought we were not ever coming home! My sweet babies! Not sure Lucy liked being the "kitty in charge"...
Then the actual time in Denver...we tried to spend as much time with family as we could...but it's always never enough...sigh...we do our best but always fall short of everyone's expectations...sigh...and Den's dad's move...took a toll on everyone...more worry...more stress...more exhaustion! Plus my eyes puffed up...I bought these special herbal pads to refresh them...and they did the opposite!
Den zipped out for groceries...we are going to make a yummy breakfast and do laundry and get our lives back on track!
I am so sorry if I didn't comment on the blogs I always comment on...but I know you understand!
