No Place Like Home

I don't know how people survive summers in Oklahoma. Oh my God is it hot there. And the humidity is just as bad. Even if my beloved Super Nanny asked me to move to Oklahoma I don't think I could. We did have a beautiful sunset last night. It was breathtaking.

Last night I asked Lynilu what time she wanted to leave this morning and her first response was "Between 8:30 and 9am". She insisted that she did not need an alarm clock and has not used one in years. When I opened my eyes this morning I looked at the clock and it said 8:04am. Yep, I think we are going to be leaving a little later then 8:30am. It's amazing how dark hotel rooms gets when you shut the blinds. By 10:30 we were both on the road back to our homes.

When I pulled up to pick up Sophie she was just walking around MJ's yard with no leash on. Sadie has no problem not running away, but I was a little concerned about Sophie. In the past Sophie would run like hell when she would get out of the yard. Laura always said that when she got out of the yard she turned into a Greyhound. But Sophie is older and it was very clear she was not going anywhere. She was excited to see me, but I could tell she had a good time with MJ and Cowboy and was very well taken care of. Thank you again MJ for keeping Sophie and for being OK with me checking in on her 3 times in 24 hours.

Tomorrow it's back to the real world. I decided that when I win Powerball I am going to just drive around the United States for the first six months. There really is so much to see and I love all the little towns in Kansas.

I did have a couple rough moments on the trip and I finally realized why I had such a rough week emotionally. Tomorrow I will explain the story behind this picture:

You are quite welcome. Sophie was no problem at all. Cowboy even enjoyed her.

Now wait! I said I usually wake about 7:00 MY TIME which would be 8:00 there!! And I think I said leave 9:30 or 10:00, didn't I? I was still off on everything, but don't make it worse than it was!! LOL!

I was SO happy to get out of the humidity. I can't believe I'm going to be returning in August for my niece's reception and to pick up Joey's little lady. August is even worse than June. gah.

I like your Powerball idea! That's why I do so many road trips .... there is so much to see and you can't see it from an airplane!

Thanks again, Caroline!! You're the best!

I couldn't live in OK either, or any hot state for that matter. Nice to visit, but nice to go home. I'm sure Sophie missed you more than she let on.
