Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs of CONTENTMENT
Ever been exceedingly happy, exceptionally fatigued, emotionally fulfilled, gloriously relieved and delightfully contented ALL AT THE SAME TIME? That's me tonight.
Vacation week is over. The last three kids left this afternoon. It really is true about that flying time thing. BlogSon has pointed that out to me on many occasions, and he is absolutely correct! It was a marvelous week, and now that it's over, I must admit I'll miss the visiting dogs. Yep. A dang good miss, tho! Three dogs in a small house - and I mean IN THE HOUSE! - is just about untenable, especially when two of them are a Rottweiler, and an Airedale.
The weather was not cooperative nor conducive to a perfect beach vacation, but we made do. There was some disappointment, I'm sure, among those who were hoping to catch a lot of fish, shrimp, crabs, enjoy boating and water sports, and maybe even get a tan. Unfortunately, it wasn't that kind of week. But it was one of the best weeks in my recent memory. Visits from my son, daughter, and grandchildren are few and far between, and to have them all in one week, except two grands that couldn't make it, was like the Impossible Dream come true. I got a glimpse of Hog's Heaven!!!
Now - back to work. (And, you know, this blogging business is getting a lot like work!)
