The most punishing aspect of my return home from San Francisco may just be the climatic change! Although we missed the 107-degree high, when we landed it was around 80 and it had been raining -- STEAMY! The flight went well, especially since my husband had been bumped up to first class and gave the seat to me! Bless him and splash him!!!
The house was still standing and the dog was still fine! As i predicted, our dog-sitter reported that Spense had an anxiety-filled Fourth, but recovered by the next day, so all's well that ends well.
Tomorrow (TODAY!) it's back to being perfect. Gotta do some meat-shopping! :-D
