Jim and I got back yesterday from a trip to both sets of parents this Christmas--to Minnesota, across the state of Wisconsin, and back home again. That's a lotta miles, but we made it safely there and back.
I especially was ready to come home. I always miss the cats more than anyone else (do you feel the same way when you leave home for a trip?) Thankfully, our cat sitter reported nothing unusual while we were gone--though I will have an upcoming event to share. :-)
