Two down and one to go...

The animals arrived on schedule today.
It was quite interesting...
after 7 days of travel, and 4 weeks without me,
I'm not sure Bella even knew who was taking her out of her cage!
Once she got inside the house and actually listened and turned around to see, she started howling.
Then my daughter and I gave her a bath, and she was so calm. She doesn't like the water really anyways, but she still was a very good girl. She moaned a little while combing her...I took it as she was telling me all her woes from this past month.
Now, she seems content to be home, but still very new to the surroundings. It will take awhile for her to get used to it all.

And Tiger? She ran out of her cage, found the litter box, and has been hiding under covers and under the beds ever since this morning.

It is good to have them here. I missed them.
and now, this also means that my husband will be here in the equivalent of one hand...5 days.
We are all on the countdown, and wishing we could make time move a little quicker,
just this once :)

How great! Thanksgiving will be more meaningful, having everyone back together again!

How funny that you are on countdown mode. It brings back memories.

When I was a kid I used to do the same when something exciting was going to happen. Of course, I counted-down days, while my math whiz younger brother counted down hours and sometimes even minutes... as an adult I can still only count down days.

Great, kids must be happy too - almost back to normal, daily life.
Happy Sunday!

Following your transition to a new country has been fun. Glad your four legged family members arrived and that all of you will be there for to greet your hubby when he arrives!

I hope your pets will soon settle in and feel at home with you, and I hope the five days pass quickly!

Oh, I am glad they arrived save and sound!
7 days of travel?
Gotta go and read why this took so long,...!
I'm sure they'll settle in soon & hubby will be there soon too.
(Can't believe those 4 weeks are almost over...what did I do in that time?! Jeeee,.....!)

You must have been so nervous waiting for them to arrive. Just one flight from LA to Belize and I worried my small rat terrier would die.

So glad they arrived! That is a very long trip for them! My birdie always gets super distressed when my hubby goes out of time. When he comes back, she bites her numerous times and complains loudly! She is such a diva:) Yeah! 5 more days! So enjoying your journey.
