The Long Hello

Rory came in late last night.  It's pretty amazing.  In some ways it feels like he's never left, and in others--I'm still a bit startled to see him when I go into a room, or when I hear his voice and it isn't interrupted by static or drop outs.  

The kids are happy too.  Everyone's all smiles.  The next few months will probably be a challenge as we figure out poopyheaded work stuff, but we're just starting out on a new adventure and we feel equal to the challenge.

In other news I got a new assignment for my master's class in the fall, so I'll be devoting some time to that over the next couple of days.  And then, Sport of Kings!  Which we'll need some additional clothes for.  This is an SCA event and normally I link to all this stuff, but I want to get back to my whole family all together in one house.  Even if it's just to mess around in the kitchen.  I know if I look out the doorway, he'll be there.  Makes me grin every time.

Good grief! I know I haven't dropped by here for a while, but it seems like you've gone through a whole odyssey in the meantime!

At least Rory's back. Three cheers and a salute for Rory!

Yay for reunited family!

We're definitely all about the yay today. We went to the Clackamas County Fair, and Rory got to meet O's girlfriend, and we had dinner at one of our favorite McMenamins. More fun in store tomorrow!

I second Kai's comment--hurray for reunited families! Glad you're all together and Rory's home safe.

LOL Even if we didn't see Rory at SOK. It's good to know he's home and you guys are together again.
