Home, Sweet, Home

We made it! I must say it seemed really strange to be traveling by ourselves. Quiet, okay those of us who know us know that's not the truth-quieter anyhow. At one time in the Cinncinnati airport I looked across to the food court and saw a man with a baseball cap on and I thought "There's Howard." Then I remembered...miss you Howard. But even if it was a little lonely all went well. These short flights were a piece of cake after the long flights to and from the Philippines. As we got closer the anticipation of seeing our family and friends grew and grew.

When we touched down in South Bend there was plenty of hugs and some tears of joy. Even a welcome banner. We all went to Ponderosa for dinner. They must of called ahead as they had an Asian buffet. Yes, I had some rice but the rest of the family filled their plates with the many other choices.

We spent the night in a hotel, putting off cleaning our home that has been empty for the last several months.

The girls enjoyed the day at Grandma's while we braved the cobwebs. That is after the locksmith let us in. It seems in the rush to get out the door in June all doors were locked and we left without the key. But even with the delay we got the place cleaned up and we are looking forward to sleeping in our own beds tonight!
