My hat's off to those who travel frequently for work, this was one tough week! I left home at 8:00 Sunday morning to fly to DC for a layover, then to Newark. Made it to my hotel amazingly without incident. I had dinner with my oldest friend, we have known eachother since kindergarden. I had not seen her in 9 years and had never met her 2 kids (6 and 4). Monday was in Mt Olive, Tuesday was Teaneck (and getting lost) and then into NYC, Wed was East Hanover (early!), then left there at 4 to Newark and landed at 10:15 in Detroit (layover).  It was 11:30 when I got my dog (who missed me silly!) and 12:15 when I finally got home.
 
My days were long, starting early and ending late. Driving in that area was very stressful and made me tense. Those jug handles were the death of me!
 
Glad to be home and on my way into the office....
L&H,
Lori

Welcome back, Lori. I find the older I get the less I like driving in heavy traffic especially on freeways. The traffic on the east coast really got to me when Mother and I were there last June. So confusing when you are not sure where the freeway ramps are and which one you need. I hope you get plenty of rest now that you are home again. I'll be Tavish was glad to see you, too. Hugs, Lauri

I can imagine your relief at being home and even more poor Tavish's relief. I am going to my mother's next week for a week and am already dreading leaving my dogs. Especially Heidi who has bad congestive heart failure problems. She is taking Lasiks. I am sure DH will give her the Rx but am concerned that she will be wondering where I am. she seems to want to hang close these days. Most afternoons I have been sitting and holding her.

I never had to travel much for work except an occasional seminar. So thankfully I did not have those long weeks of driving in strange places and in strange places to sleep.

Rest up and get your life back to normal.
Hugs MK

Wow Lori, what a trip.  Wasn't driving in New Jersey fun?  We don't have the highest car insurance in the nation for nothing.  Oh my, Mt. Olive, East Hanover, places I know.  Mt. Olive driving better than East Hanover.  East Hanover they tend to put everything they can in about a 5 mile stretch.  I grew up with jug handles so am used to them but when my nephew (originally from NJ) came out to NJ a couple years ago whenever he drove anywhere on our highways his wife (originally from Idaho) kept her eyes shut. 
 
Glad you're home, safe and sound (I bet not half as glad as Tavish).  Now get some much needed rest.  Hugs, Libby
Friends are God's way of taking really good care of us.

Lori,
Sorry I missed you on your trip to NJ! Let me know the next time you come east and we'll try to connect. Last week I went to a meeting in San Francisco and I called Joany (Buzz4hope) and she came to meet me for lunch. We a had great time! She is a beautiful person! Glad you made it home safely! L&H, Frayda

Frayda and other NJ gals...my days were action packed. From early in the morning till evening, and then I had to do work from the room at night. I truly had no time to see anyone, and I knew it was going to be that way...I will definitely let you know if I come back to the area...

Heard about the fire at exit 10 in Edison, yikes!

L&H,
Lori

Tavish was soooo happy to see me...he spent most of the 4 days under Leigh's bed. He refused to come out most of the time, and when he went out, often refused to walk. He took care of business inside a few times, and ate little. When he saw me, he spazzed out and was so excited, it is just so cute to see his joy! He is totally normal again, did not seem any worse for the wear.

L&H,
Lori (and Tav)
