Homeward bound

I am sitting in Des Moines tonight on the last night of vacation. I volunteered to babysit my grandson so his parents can have an evening to celebrate their 5 year anniversary. It is such a hardship to cuddle my soft, huggable grandson :-)

I had four good days with my dad and got through most of his "to do" list. He still isn't driving so saves up chores like banking for when I'm there. Believe it or not, one of the things we did was buy him an Asus 1000HE netbook for his kitchen table. At almost 92, he decided the desktop computer just wasn't enough in his one bedroom apartment. I got it set up for him, we purchased a wireless mouse and he's good to go. Amazing.

Tomorrow I'll be headed home to hug my husband and my cats and enjoy the rest of the weekend. Tuesday I'm back to reality, but I'll think about that later.

And how wonderful for your husband and cats to have you home for hugging!

Hooray for your dad! I hope he's writing his autobiography. What memories he must have!!

Enjoy hugging the husband and the cats, they've surely missed you lately. It was so selfless and sweet of you to volunteer to babysit little Rowan and make sure he got all the snuggling he could ever want. Good on your dad for getting a laptop, they're wonderful!
