After an emotional weekend with my family, attending my grandmother's funeral and visiting, I am back in the 'burgh. The animals are all very relieved and happy to see me, so much so that I haven't even received the "silent treatment" that so many of us often receive after a few days away from home.
I didn't even come straight home from the airport - I went right out to the pet resort to pick up the dogs... the only really plausible solution for them this weekend, since my husband was already out of town as well. When the kennel assistant brought them out to me, it looked like she was water-skiing behind them, because as soon as they saw me standing at the desk, they started running for me, not caring that they were towing some hapless human behind them!
And the cats all came out of their daytime sleeping/napping/hiding places to see me. Charlotte even napped with me on the bed for awhile. Yes, she's giving me her "stern look." Though she was purring, I'm fairly certain she was warning me NOT TO DO THAT TO HER AGAIN. I mean, goodness, I left her alone with all of these cats.
Anyway, there will be more blog posts this week, but this one is going to be short and sweet.
