We are home from our 5-1/2 week long trip. We went to 7 states and logged thousands of miles. We spent so much time together in the small space of our motorhome that sometimes I thought I'd scream from the lack of privacy. We'd wake up in the morning and have that moment of wondering where we were. We have new family jokes and memories to last a lifetime. We saw moose! We climbed a glacier. We survived day after endless day of heat above 95 degrees. We are a stronger, tighter family.
This morning. I woke up at home. I slept so deeply in my own bed that I'm not sure I moved all night. The sounds of my neighborhood are filling my ears and filling my brain. There are issues to deal with and chores that need doing and lives to reboot but right now, the house is still and quiet, the nest of crows behind our house is kronking, and all is right with the world.
