“…and take the long way home…
…take the long way home…”
Karen and I finally made it to our house today. The winter storm left our house without electricity for two and a half days. We joked about spending the night at JPOP and POPPOP – yes, it is an inside joke referring to Karen’s sister and brother-in-law in contrast to the J.H. IPOP and HIPOP clinics.
I just finished purging the fridge and scrubbing it out. Although Hopkins is very pragmatic about cats, food, eating out, and other restrictions, I wasn’t willing to keep anything.
It is a bit scary coming home and leaving the “safety net” of the hospital, for both Karen and me. Taking the weekend slowly, working out a routine and realizing it is still a very long road to travel.
The kittens were glad to have mommy home; Tommy is glued to her side – right along with the hand sanitizer. Dory, on the other hand, is just happy to have a doorman back in residence. The others are in various stages of giving “back”.
