5:15 PM (Susan posting): We're home! Leaving today was good timing. The weather yesterday was overcast, and overnight it got downright nasty. It rained hard all morning, and showed no signs of letting up over the next few days. So even if we culd have extended our vacation, we would have been stuck inside most of the time.
It was a long drive home, and we're all tired and cranky. We can't bear to get back to our normal routine, so instead of cooking dinner tonight, we're going out and will pick up a few groceries. Tomorrow, it's back to reality. The nurse (Amy) will be here in the morning to check Sophie's blood levels in preparation for Sophie's clinic visit on Friday.
