4 June 2021

Ned and Marta are home.  Their plane landed around 10:30 p.m. and they showed up with two 50 lb suitcases and several backpacks.  I was so thrilled to have them home again, that I never took a single photo...which is sad because the sight of Marta with four heavy backpacks hanging off of her would have been a great picture for this entry.

Bouncer knew they were on their way home.  That's the only thing that explains her behavior yesterday.

She spent most of the day whining or barking and going to the front door and then back to the family room to whine some more.  This is behavior she has not done in all the time she's been here.  It was just...weird. 

She would look at me and whine, like she was trying to tell me something.  She didn't need food or treats or water, she just needed to whine.

She finally gave up about 9:30 and went to her bed to go to sleep and was sleeping so soundly that when Ned snuck in (even *I* didn't hear him) she didn't wake up, but when he called her, she jumped up and started wagging her tail.  How I wish I had thought to take a picture of her smiling.  I have not seen her smile since Ned left.

So all is back to normal.  Jeri made it home safely, Ned and Marta made it home safely, Walt and I didn't kill ourselves when left alone for a week, and life picks up where it left off.

We heard a bit about their time in Hawaii, though it was late and they needed to get unpacked and Walt and I needed to get to sleep, so hearing all about it will take place today.

But they mailed lots and lots of stuff from the house, to Marta's mother and here to our house.  Their UPS bill(s) came to thousands of dollars.  They had an estate sale the last weekend they were there and they will clear $15,000, which will pay for the postage.

Ned was particularly pleased with something he sent home for himself.

There were able to have a day of a Hawaiian vacation.  After they got the house cleaned out and the cars sold, they went to a hotel in Kona where they spent the day before heading to the airport.  Ned says he realizes that they probably will not be on the Big Island again.  They might go to Hawaii again, but there will be no reason to visit the Big Island.

I got involved watching the last episodes of Major Crimes all afternoon.  I hadn't intended to just sit and watch but how they ended the show, after six seasons is very good.

Then, after sleeping my normal 2 hours of sleep, I ended up re-watching several episodes of Call the Midwife.  The nice thing about watching CTM again is that it's 9 seasons long (it's actually 10, but they have not yet shown season 10 in this country yet) and I'm only on season 6, so I have lots to go.
