At Home At Last
18 August 2015 | Home
The plan was.........
As I've often said, plans change!
We got the cube van (Wednesday) the day before planning to drive home so that we could pack it and be ready to leave Gromit relatively early in the morning (Thursday). That was the plan......the fact was that we didn't get away until around 4 pm and were too tired to drive all the way home - about 10 hours with breaks.
The crew agreed that this was the perfect time for a little luxury, so we booked a hotel with Michael's Hilton Honour Points!(Thursday night). Oh, la la!!! It was fantastic....just what we needed.
We arrived at Casey and Glenn's place (our neighbours - 2 doors over) at 1:30 in the morning (Friday night/Saturday morning), and after a quick hello, we fell into bed. We had to get up early to unload the van so that Michael could return it - it was a one-way rental from Maryland to Niagara Falls, NY and he had to have it back by 1 pm.
It felt amazing and odd to be back in our empty house. Boxes everywhere, voices echoing off the emptiness, excitement running through us. It was the beginning of a new chapter and it was feeling pretty good!
