The cats are spooked, like our return is an unexpected turn of events.
The house is OURS. Staying with family is wonderful, but being in your own house is wonderful, too. Tonight we sleep in OUR bed!
Tomorrow, many things must be done. A decrepit, matted cat must be bathed; laundry must be done; unpacking must be completed ... but for tonight, I look forward to sleep in true privacy and blessedly low humidity.
