Florida Bound

It has been a while since my last post. We have returned to Pennsylvania, spent some time with family and friends, admired the vibrant fall colors, revisited some old haunts, did a little hiking, made some preliminary summer plans, endured the fickle weather, and sometimes just did nothing.

This morning we left PA for Florida and I'm not too certain how I feel about that. I have missed my children and my pets very much. Living in a 36 foot motorhome is starting to get a little old. The weather was getting sucky. I should be more than ready to return home, right?
Yet lurking around inside of me was that old and familiar "blah, vacation is over", "back to the old grind", "will I ever get to do this again?" feeling. I guess retirement reality hasn't really sunk in yet! I'm sure it won't take too long to get past that! Should be home on Wed. If you hear some loud moans and groans coming from the Deltona area it's just the reality of having your "not so tidy" son living alone in your house for 4 months. Ah-h-h!
