It is a beautiful sunny summer Saturday and we are back at home from holidays a full week early! By yesterday morning I was too ill to continue so we hopped in the car and 12 hours later we were driving into our own garage.
After a couple of hours sleep overnight I headed off to emergency at the hospital this morning and got some medical assistance for the secondary, post-mumps bacterial infection in my lungs. I am armed and ready for recovery. My husband realized today that he now has a week to work on home projects and isn't feeling all that terrible after a crappy vacation looking after his ill wife. So, it isn't all bad!
The house is a wreck inside with unpacked suitcases in the bedrooms, bits of half eaten health bars and empty, squashed water bottles on the kitchen counter tops, laundry baskets spilling over with dirty clothes, an empty refrigerator, bits of dirt from the garage floor tracked in with our luggage onto the linoleum inside the house.......in other words a typical "surprise, we are home early and all disorganized and sick to boot" kind of return home.
If it wasn't the happiest of holidays, at least we survived it and are on the mend, all ready planning when we can next get away and where we will go.
