Thanks to all of you who called me, texted me, sent me emails, and left comments on the blog. I really appreciated the encouragement. The time away was easier than I thought, but still very hard. I thoroughly enjoyed my trip and the time spent with my sister. Coming home was wonderful - I could barely get enough of Gavin. I'm glad to be home. I'm glad to have had such a perfect visit with my sister. I'm glad her husband arrived safely yesterday and is now there with her in their new home. I'm even almost glad to be going back to work today.
