We got home last night at around 8pm and I haven't digested the trip enough to blog about it, but here are some things I noticed, in no particular order:
I love my family. When I don't see them all for a while, I forget how much I love them, but after spending time with my daughters, my son, my partner, and my ex-husband in various combinations and permutations lately, I can't stop thinging about how lucky I am to have them all in my life.
There are a lot of empty, abandoned houses in America. Everytime I pass one, I wonder what happened to the people who used to live in it.
Every state has it's own distinct beauty, but Arkansas is chock full of assholes and their unpleasant personalities detract mightily from the beauty of the state. Oh, and they drive like crap, too. Who ever taught them all that the correct thing to do at the end of a merging ramp is to stop and contemplate the situation...then make a run for it?
Cats make excellent travelling companions, as long as you don't try to crate them.
Coming home to the person who loves you and seeing her face light up when you pull up into the driveway is one of the sweetest feelings in the world.
