Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig!

On Sunday we celebrated Memorial Day with a cook-out at my sister's house in Bloomington.

At the cookout we honored two graduations, a new job, and a pregnancy.
The Chemistry Geek Princess (pictured with tiara on the right), and my sister's daughter-in-law (middle), both received degrees in the past few weeks. My nephew (left) got a job as a Livingston County (IL) deputy sheriff. They are also expecting a new baby in December.
The funniest part of this was that my sister and her husband, who sponsored the party, completely forgot that Monday was their anniversary!

The night before the party,
my sister worked for several hours
to frame a picture of the CGP in cap and gown.
She had to use Photoshop and pictures from the internet to get the best picture for the special frame she had gotten as a gift to the CGP.

I think she did a pretty good job!

Yesterday, my sister dropped me at ISU's Bone Student center, where I caught the Peoria Charter Shuttle to O'Hare International.

I got there at 2PM for a 5:45 PM flight. Security was quick though--and the TSA employees in Chicago were amazingly polite and even kind! So I had plenty of time to eat and walk around the airport before catching my plane.

Bruce picked me up at the Albuquerque Sunport at around 8 PM. It is so good to be home.

Even though my office is still chaos!

Actually, the office is not. It is empty except for the stuff on the walls and the newly laid floor.

What is chaos is everything that is supposed to be in my office. But Bruce has promised that we can move the furniture back in tonight so that I will be back in business for tomorrow's last day of IRD Distance Training.

It's so cool! I went away leaving a messy office, and I returned to a newly laid floor!

Nice! Or it will be when we get the tape up and the stuff moved back in.

And it is so nice to be home. I slept well for the first time in ten days.
Those Select Comfort Sleep Number beds are addictive.
As is the husband that belongs in it with me.
