We left our motel just after 9 am and we were pleasantly surprised to have our room given to us for free. We had an issue with the hide-a-bed that the blessings were supposed to sleep in as it smelled like urine when they climbed into it last night. The staff was amazing and they were going to get us a new mattress from Salmon Arm, but we opted to get the air bed out of the van and use it instead. After all, they had slept on it at Auntie Bev's all week and it worked great. Sweetheart was so cute, as she said she was happy to sleep on the air bed again because she really liked it. Anyway, it was rather inconvenient and a little bit gross but we saved almost $300. We were surprised, and left feeling okay about the whole situation.
We arrived home at 3 pm after one stop for lunch in Merritt and this is what we came home to. At first, we thought that the tire had been slashed. Our neighbour actually witnessed it blowing up a few days ago, as it was probably just old age. He said there was a loud bang and smoke, so I am feeling pleased that I wasn't home and there were no little people around. And thanks to another neighbour, he and Hubby had the tire changed within the hour.
Our blessings decided to come home with us for a couple of hours.....yes, I thought that they would be tired of us, but I guess they weren't......and I have unpacked and done 4 loads of laundry. Home again, home again......I guess I am happy to be home, but I miss the G family already. Their parents came back to get them just after 5 and it is really really quiet here. Picked up some take-out from the Mongolian Grill, we've caught up on a couple of PVR'd shows and I am feeling weary. We had a really fantastic holiday and we made a lot of wonderful memories.
