I'm home. Great trip. Grandma is doing great, got out of the nursing home yesterday. My other Grandma and Grandpa look great too, and I got to see some aunts and uncles I hadn't seen in years. I think my dad was happy to have a visitor even though I kept him running around more than he's used to.
My niece gave us a scare today. She and her friend started a rock slide (by accident of course) and ended up in the ER. She is okay but her friend was hit hard by a big boulder and fractured a vertebra. She has an 80% chance of healing up okay, so hopefully all will be well. I'm sure it really hurts right now though.
Now that I'm home, it's back to the grind! After an 8 hour trip home I visited with the kids and then spent a couple hours getting some stuff done outside. I'm a little concerned that Soxy is not transitioning to grass as well as I had hoped. I am penning her up at night in the mustang pen, which means cleaning a bunch of old alfalfa up. Other than that it was the usual feeding routine, pretty easy except that Bella and Cisco and Soxy made me make 3 separate trips to bring them in. If I was smart I would have grabbed more than one halter and not expected them to follow the leader.
I don't even want to think about the list of stuff to do tomorrow. Most of the fun stuff will be put off though, we're having a birthday party and I've got to do some housework. I hate housework. But having guests when my floors are this grimy is probably not socially acceptable...
