After several weeks of traveling we have made it to Kansas (insert Wizard of Oz pun here). Oddly enough the first person we spoke to; the lady checking us in at the hotel’s name was Dorothy. Just something to think about. We actually arrived on Monday, but I haven’t had the chance to post till now.
We had a great 2 weeks visiting family in Rochester. Nice to see alot of people again. And had an amazing baby shower which I’ll have to share pictures from. It was so nice to really spend some time with my family this time around too. Something about having a baby inside you that just makes you want to have some one-on-one time with your own mom. Then we made a 10 hour trek to Indiana for some resting. And really for Thanksgiving. It was so nice to be with family on Thanksgiving for the first time in a few years. And some quality time was also spent with a few of the nieces and nephews. The big benefit? Not having to go out of our way at all, because we would have been driving straight through on our way to Kansas and with my big pregnant belly the rest in the middle was needed! Then….another 10 hour drive!!
So, thats it. We are done. Kind of. From Germany to Kansas. Now…we have to find a place to live. But luckily for the cats that doesn’t mean anymore long car rides. Our Edgar was so stressed from everything (including the gigantic cat Spike at my parents’) that he licked himself sore. Literally. He has lesions from over cleaning. Now he’s on anti-biotics and steroid spray. But he’s getting better.
I’ve done a bit of knitting too. Not quite as much as I would have expected since we’ve done so much traveling, but I do have to get the camera up and running so I can upload some pictures of what I’ve been working on to share with everyone. More to come!
