it was a good day

Yesterday at 7am, as my post went live, I heard a meow outside in our backyard.

I listened again, carefully, because I had been hearing imaginary meows for almost 2 days.

Sure enough, it was a loud meow…

I ran downstairs and looked out the back door.

I was Hobbes!

He was covered in pine needles and cobwebs, but nothing worse.

He was purring and so happy to see the kids and me.

Both of the kids were happy he was home.

I fed him, gave him his insulin, and made sure that he was inside as we left for school.

On our return from school, the kids got on bikes and we went through the neighborhood taking down our fliers.

After that we headed out to the backyard and found a big mouse in the middle of the extra dog bed we have been keeping outside.

Hobbes brought home a trophy from his adventure!

As an extra bonus, Lala asked me to put a ponytail in her hair…something she has refused to let me do forever!

And, Ryan surprised us by coming home for the night between travel from Montana to California!

home is…having the family back together again.

    “Happy days are here again” “all’s well that ends well” and other such platitudes really do mean something… looks like everyone is feeling well…. how about you?
