Home, sweet home!



By mid-afternoon Tuesday we were pretty much stowed and ready to roll, all except for the truly last-minute stuff.  So we left; drove late; stopped at Sam’s (waved to you, Barb!), then split up just south of Atlanta.

MM found another tire rim for the Prius (that I was driving), so being the good wife, I drove (through lots more traffic) to Tucker to pick us said rim.  Now we have four (matching) rims.  I can hear the applause.

The Prius handled well and got a top fuel indicator of 51.2 MPG.  Comfort level was pretty good for the seat; not great for steering wheel to seat position ratio for legs/arms.  By 12 hours in the saddle, I was getting pretty well accustomed to everything.

KC was so happy to be home and outside that he didn’t come inside until almost 7 this morning!  Bad boy.  He needs to remember his dark thirty curfew is still in effect.  Hopefully, he was out running off a bit of his winter storage.

Missy checked the outside a couple of times, but inside is where that smart girl wants to stay.

Our three wee kiddos promptly came a visiting as soon as they got home for school.  Love, love that!  Soccer games for them this afternoon, followed by pizza with the whole family.

Welcome home to us, even with the heat on this morning!

I'm glad you're home safe honey. I was thinking about you often yesterday hoping there were no snags in your travel plans.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to those happy babies. ♥♥♥

Happy to see that you're safe & sound back home. Driving on those highways can be atrocious. Take a break & rest for a while. See ya my friend.

Nothing like being back home, isn't it.

Your photo is sweet. There is nothing like home, sweet home. Happy Easter. :)

It is wonderful to have y'all back in town - for a little while at least! :-)

We're glad to have you back! Will you be home after school tomorrow?

Glad you are home safe and sound. We leave Monday and head to the east side of Atlanta to visit cruise friends and then head north to the snow! Spring will come, won't it?

We just filled up the Prius yesterday and we averaged 46 mpg for yet another tank, and that was all in-town driving. Can't argue too much with that now, can you? nosirreebob.

I thought I felt you waving!

Welcome back to Mayberry and tall & wee ones and hugs and pizza and I would not be at all surprised if there was triple chocolate cake for somebody soon! big hugs xoxo
