We’re home! After a 4 and a half hour delay and threats of cancelling the flight we took off from Orlando and landed safely in Kansas City. While we were flying over Alabama the captain warned us of turbulent weather and had the crew suspend in-flight service. The turbulence wasn’t bad at all. The way they were acting I expected the plane to do some acrobatics. However, I see on the news today that there were several tornadoes in Alabama yesterday. We flew through the aftermath of that. (On a side note, the tornadoes hit Pratville, which is west Montgomery and where we were thinking about renting a house).
We went from shorts weather to layers-upon-layers weather. It was sunny and warm in Florida, it is cold, windy, cloudy and grey in Missouri. Why am I happy to be home? BECAUSE…we have NEW FLOORS!!! New floors people! While we were gone our landlords (and friends) had the kitchen, dining room, hallway, bathrooms and laundry room redone. The house was nice before, now it’s like coming home to a brand new house.
So, today is unpacking and moving furniture around. Both are like Christmas for me. We bought so much new stuff in Florida it’s like unwrapping presents. And getting to move furniture around is something I enjoy doing about every six to nine months. It’s a good thing we move often. I can change houses instead of having to buy new things every couple of years. Now, my house has changed for me and my regular furniture will look great on the new floors.
Lots of love and prayers go out to those who suffered in the storms yesterday. And lots of warm feelings to us since we have to get used to winter again.

I’m so jealous…I would love some new floors! Glad you’re home safe. =)
Yay–glad you’re home! Really enjoyed living vicariously through your trip…thanks for making the effort to blog all of it. The Ashlyn-throwing-up story was pitiful…I was sitting here thinking that I knew you handled it gracefully…because that’s just the kind of person you are. Whereas I would’ve been freaking out, thereby making the situation worse, ensuing abounding tears for all of us. Ah well…y’all are home, you had a fabulous time, and the memories/pictures will live long. Hooray!
