We got Grandma settled eating lunch and went grocery shopping. She said, "Have a good time shopping."
Just like that.
We're almost back to normal, folks!
Mom called from Florida to see how we're doing and to report that "It's 75 and sunny and we just got back from a walk on the beach after visiting Kim and Stephen and holding Emma for a while."
Sounds like a really rough trip to me. I'm not a fan of vacations just for vacations' sake, but visiting is an entirely different matter!
Jenny came over for dinner tonight since it's a quiet and spooky house next door without even good old Muffin home anymore. She really misses her cat buddy. It feels kind of funny to all of us to not have Mom and Dad home, but we're all glad they get to be down with Kim and Stephen. And I'm sure we'll all survive the next week or two just fine.
On a separate note, Ben has introduced me to a wonderful thing I've missed out on for a long time: banana peppers on pizza. WHY have I picked those off my pizza for so many years???? I like them so much I got them out to add to my portion of tonight's pizza casserole even though I didn't bake them in for fear other people might not appreciate my new-found fascination. My favorite part of eating McDonald's hamburgers has always been the pickle: and banana peppers on pizza have the same level of crunchy, tangy wonderfulness. Anyone who likes pickles on their hamburgers...give banana peppers on pizza try! You won't regret it. Seriously.
