Thank the Lord baby Jesus we are finally home!!!!
So Saturday/Sunday I rode in a bus with Luke’s mom’s family from Florida to Illinois. We spent 22 ish hours on a cramped, small, uncomfortable, bus. The ride was only supposed to take 14 hours…but oh well, we finally made it to our respective families houses in Illinois. So I stayed at my grandma’s house. That was really nice though, I always enjoy spending time with her. 😄
So last night I took my uncle’s new dog, Luther (who I’m 90% sure is part pit bull and maybe part border collie) for a walk last night. Haha I’m used to my 3 border collies who are all very high energy, in very good shape, and can go on very long walks with me, so it was kinda funny that Luther could barely make it a mile. I mean, he enjoyed the walk and he tried really hard, but near the end I kinda had to drag him to keep him going haha. My uncle doesn’t exactly walk him so I guess he’s not used to it. That’s alright though, we both had fun and he was nice and tired last night. 😁
But our short little walk, and drinking lots of water has helped the swelling in my ankles go down. They’re still a little bit stiff and swollen from the 22 hour bus ride, but they were much better this morning.
So anyway, this morning I hung out with my grandma for a little bit, and then Luke (who was stayed at his dad’s house last night) came to get me at 9:30 am, and then we were off to Kansas! Except not really, because Luke forgot some stuff at his dad’s house and we had to stop back there before we could leave. But we did and it was all good. 😄
After an uneventful 5 hour drive back home (which felt kinda short after the drive to and from Florida), we came back to a house of dogs who were very excited to see us (Finn wouldn’t let the other dogs get near me haha), a very sad garden full of weeds and dead and dying plants, and the house is a huge wreck and a lot of stuff seems to be broken…so I’m dealing with that right now. Fun times. But hopefully by tomorrow things will mostly be back in order.
