I have returned from the hinterlands and our house has now replaced much unwanted furniture with much wanted furniture. Hooray. Sadly, the only beings in the house to enjoy the change are me and Mojo as Danielle and Sebby are in Minnesota for the week. Boo.
My chariot for the trip was a rented Dodge Caravan, and I hate to admit it, but it was a pretty sweet ride. If I find myself needing to make the jump to a Mini-Van, I won’t be too heartbroken. Great seating, lots of power under the hood and little luxuries like stereo controls on the steering wheel, multi-zone climate control, stow and go seating and more cupholders than a small stadium. Given how far we drive, and how much stuff (and various mammals) we travel with, I imagine a vehicle like this is in our future at some point, and I won’t mind.
What I do mind is coming home to a to0-quiet house and trying to sleep. I miss Danielle and Sebby very much, and while I will make the most of my week alone by getting caught up on sleep and chores, I would rather be tired and behind on my To-Do list if it meant having them around.
