One of the best things about leaving your house for a trip (even a short one), is getting to come home. We had a great weekend when all was said and done. Saturday was cold, windy, and wet- we were out in the middle of a cow pasture, that they call a 'soccer field' trying to stay warm, watching the girls play for about four hours (2 games). The best part was getting to return to the hotel for pizza and HEAT.
The next day started at 6:00 am, as we had to pack and checkout prior to the 9:00 am game. The weather was perfect! And- the girls wound up making it to the semi-finals and then finals. They didn't win, but still came home with trophies.
Five soccer games later, lots of sunburn, and a 3 hour drive, we arrived at the house around 9:10 last night. Unfortunately, the dog had some issues in our absence. We typically have our neighbors help dog sit for a weekend trip. I'm not sure if we'll do that again. The upstairs carpet may never be the same. I don't know if it's an aging thing, but lets just say she obviously needed to have more bathroom breaks- ugh!
I went out and bought a brand new carpet cleaner (my old was was 6 years old and not even close to being capable of tackling the carpet). So, along with laundry I will be cleaning lots of carpet. Once this is done, I have some great pictures to share.
