After a great day in Hong Kong we had to say good bye to Asia and started our 30 hour travel journey. We flew Delta (actually pretty nice) to Detroit. My mom went back to Tampa from there and we continued our 6 hour layover. After Mom got on her plane I started crying and couldn't stop! Was it because I was sad our trip was over, happy to be going home, relieved that we finally had Mimi and the trip had gone so well, sad to leave a daily breakfast buffet and maid service? Probably all of the above.
Babette met us at the airport with all the essentials plus cake pops!
We were all pretty jet-lagged this week but we made it to school every day with only one tardy. The worst one was my mom though. The second night she woke up at 4 AM and wondered why it was so light out then went back to bed. My brother and sister-in-law came to her house at 7:30 and mom finally woke up and wondered why they were there so early. They informed her that it was actually PM, not AM and that she had slept all day!
Mimi is doing GREAT and has discovered soccer, new friends, and even a Montessori school. She was terrified of the cats at first but now says proudly that she's only scared of one of them. We have a lot of conversations about where the cats are at any given minute.
