We had stopped for gas here on the outskirts of Detroit on the way into town. When The Mister went in for a soda he came out a changed man. All I heard for the rest of the trip was that we had to stop here for donuts on the way home. Before we pulled out of the lot he made me write down the directions for the trip back so we didn't miss it.
This is the weather we ran into coming home through Ohio, Pennsylvania and finally Maryland. If I had to miss the MDSW this was a good year to do it. I bet it was a muddy mess. Needless to say stopping with Pup at the rest stops was not as fun as it was on the way up in the sunshine.
We left Detroit at 6:30 am and rolled into home at 5 pm. Neither of us had slept the night before from all the coffee we drank at the reception so we headed out as soon as the sun came up. Too exhausted to cook dinner, the Chinese take out place down the street came to the rescue.
So did the bottle of wine Daughter left behind when she left for the airport. I brought it home with me.
Those donuts The Mister had to have were dessert and they did not disappoint in spite of the long car ride.
Happily all the kitties both inside and out were accounted for. It took them awhile to realize their people were back. Having a stranger in the house for four days probably freaked them out. It's going to take them awhile to get back into our usual routine. Me too.
