After a well planned and well executed escape we are home. My friend came and picked us up and we had a fabulous time at lunch. Great conversation and lots of laughs! Plus she also gave us some lovely lotions and one from Lush too! We can’t wait to try them. We need to get together again soon!
We were at the airport in plenty of time however, the flight was too full for us to get a middle seat blocked. WestJet has a program where you can get extra space based on a disability. We are going to fill out the paperwork so we never have to go through this again. The last minute wrangling on the flights is always stressful. Luckily we had a really nice woman who sat with us. She and her family are interested in adopting a rescued dog so I am sure we will be in touch.
We are going to open up the balance of our presents tonight and have real Christmas. We will be cooking a turkey sometime during the week and having a friend over for that meal. I am sure that will be a great evening too!
It had been a really hard 5 days since we left. While we were only there for 3 full days it felt like 3 weeks. It has been an incredibly negative and emotional trip – none of it good for either of us. I am off until next week so at least a little time to de-stress and get back to normal. I am so happy to see the dogs!! They make me feel so much better!
