Its good to be home. I had a great time in Italy and really enjoyed my glass classes but theres just no place like home. I especially missed my cats, my shower, and my own bed! I missed my feather pillows to be exact. Its hard to travel with your own pillows, I need to get one of those space age vacuum bags they sell on TV infomercials.
Anywho, since getting home I have developed a wicked cold. I have been sneezing and blowing my nose for days now, and frankly I’ve about had it. I must have picked something up in the airport or on the plane. I am super happy I got it on the way home and not on the way there, but this still sucks. After two weeks on vacation I feel bad taking sick days so I have been coming in to work…and then leaving early to go home and lie down. Plus I have not felt like lighting up my torch, which is way more distressing than leaving work early.
I will be heading to Chicago this weekend to pick up the Maxie dog who has been staying with my parents while we were in Italy. I think my parents will be more than happy to see him go. Max is a really good boy but he has a little “gas” problem. Yes, my dog stinks.
