Home now

We arrived home last night in one piece, with all of our luggage. In fact, our suitcases were the 7th and 9th bags onto the baggage claim belt, and the bus to the parking lot arrived just as we were walking up to the bus stop. We made it from airplane door to car door to front door in 1.5 hours, which is a record.

ThePinkThing was waiting for us and totally excited, jumping all around. You can't beat that kind of greeting. It took her about 60 seconds before she asked what presents we had brought. :-)

I am finally wearing clean clothes (yay!). The packing cube was sitting on my dresser when I looked last night.

However, now I have to figure out what my MiL did to our TV (we only have the one TV). There is sound but no picture. And my new coffee maker is broken. (sigh)

Welcome home.

Update 5/3, 9:06 PM

Looks like it was a power spike that fried the TV sometime after my MiL last used it on Friday night. I guess that it isn't her fault. An LG technician will be coming out sometime this week to look at it. However, we went out today and bought a new TV for the basement. We had planned to buy one in a couple of weeks anyway (when we finally have a free weekend), so we just pushed up the timetable a little. Next up is a treadmill to go along with the TV (fry my brain while doing useful exercise)...

No TV? NO TV?? Ack. Hope it realigns itself with the elements...

60 seconds' wait is pretty good; what did the Pink Thing receive for her patience? (g)

She got a macrame bracelet with her name, a glittery bean bag mermaid with long pink hair, a watercolor painting of her name (the letters are fanciful animals and are difficult to identify as letters, but totally cool, nonetheless), and a silicone rainbow whisk (she likes to make scrambled eggs...).

Did you find the raincoat?

Broken. Coffee. Maker?

Ack!



Also, now I want a silicone rainbow whisk. What? I like to make scrambled eggs too. ;)

Glad you made it home OK, Doc.

I do not need another whisk. I do not read another whisk.

Michelle -- yes, you do: this one is my favorite...

MWT, now that you mention it -- I have NOT found the raincoat. Hmmm...
