I'm sure you've heard the phrase, "I need a vacation from my vacation?" Well it is true! Actually the cruise was very relaxing and since my house is on the market and I left it in tip-top shape, it wasn't a horrible transition. But there was no food in the house so we had to do the quick trip to the grocery store and then schedule times to pick up the two pets. Jake, the kitty, was staying with my friend/realtor and Ripley, the pug, was staying with the girls Grandma and Grandpa the first part of the week and their cousins the second part of the week. It seemed like the first three days back we were on the go constantly, trying to get everything back to "normal."
