The Home Stretch

Reinforcements arrive this weekend in the form of my sweet husband, Lance and little Eliza.  Alan drove up to switch out Lance for my older two daughters to be my helper for the week.  We had a lovely 28 hours together and enjoyed some relaxing beach time and yummy NY style pizza.  They gave me some needed Mother's Day hugs, met the new addition to our family.  

Alan came with roses in hand, Eliza came with the biggest hug.  Just so you know, Eliza's hugs are the cure for most everything.  I missed that little bug.  When I would call home and try to chat with her, she would oblige for a minute, but then she would ask to talk to Bridger.  The two of them would talk it up about who knows what - and then she would hang up.  Lance grew another two inches in the week I was gone. Seriously, how does that happen?  The girls packed up and in the same whirlwind that they came, they were gone.  It was just what I needed to regroup to be able to survive the second week.

And here I am. Smack in the middle of week two.  Information is pouring in, we are taking the dogs into the environment where all that you learned is tested in action.  But I see the light at the end of the tunnel.  It is the light of home, and right now, nothing has ever looked so good.

Busy day ahead.  I still have to do my homework (yes, homework!) before class begins, get Bridger showered and ready, fed, do meds, get myself ready and get the dog fed, ready and walked.
