Flying Solo To Sac
Yesterday morning, I left the grey skies of Oregon for the sunny blues of California. This marks the first trip in a long series of trips that I have made home to Sacramento sans hubby…and also sans babies.
Although I feel good knowing that Pom, Casper, and kitties Beau and Athena are with Dustin instead of strangers, I didn’t realize how weird it was going to be without them until I was saying my goodbyes.
Casper just looked at me with big, dopey eyes like he always does while I kissed him on the top of his head, and Pom Pom gave me the usual “fine, leave me” shrug-off while I picked her up and plastered her with kisses and hugs. Overall, they didn’t seem extra concerned that I was going to be gone for the next five days.
As I was sitting on the plane, it occurred to me that they probably just thought I was heading off to school or work, and expected me home in the evening. This thought, of course, got me really sad because I had a vision of Pom Pom and Casper glancing at the front door all night, waiting for me to walk through it. Hmm…maybe I am giving myself more credit than I deserve!
Well, at least I get my fill of babies here at my parents’ house, with a Baby Boy and two hyper twin cats who all love to snuggle….
