Oh my God! So I'm sitting there minding my own business, basking in my solitude, when out of nowhere in walks mom and dad! About 9:30 last night I see them coming through the front door, weighed down with bags and shit and cooing and whistling as if they've never seen me before.
They left Vermont at about five yesterday morning and drove all day, getting stuck in accident traffic in Washington DC and having a close call or two while searching desperately for a place to stop and pee. They got in and smothered me annoyingly (which I ate up)with all kinds of attention, and appeared to be very tired, fed up and glad to be home.
They had a great time meeting dad's granddaughter and seeing some of his kids, and spending time with some of mom's family.
Unfortunately, some of their plans fell through and they didn't get to see some family members. It's been almost three years and they were looking forward to seeing everyone they wanted to see, but I guess things just didn't work out that way. We'll just leave that one alone.
I was actually glad to see them, and can't wait to fall back into our little routine of me being waited on hand and foot.
I was about to toss some pictures into this post, but a certain dipshit hasn't done his part yet, so they'll have to wait.
