We got up and were packed and ready to go at a good time. We’d planned on stopping at Rock City, but they closed at 6 and we didn’t arrive until 6:30. There was still plenty of daylight so we thought we’d stroll downtown Chattanooga, but we ended up passing up the right exit and by the time we ate dinner and then figured out where we needed to go, it was getting dark. Instead, we drove a bit further before stopping for the night, knowing that would put us that much closer to home the next day.

After weeks with little to no rain, we were coming home to the exact opposite. There was talk of flooding and some were predicting that the flooding would meet or exceed what we’d experience just a year ago!
We made great time and pulled into the driveway at about 2:30. Before doing anything, I had to vaccuum. 2 weeks of cat hair during shedding season is something to behold! After unpacking the car and trailer we loved on our kitties and then I set to work unpacking. Ben grabbed dinner since we had no food in the house and by the time we went to bed that night I’d unpacked everything, finished the laundry, and put everything away. It was almost like we’d never left!
The cats had really missed us. Boy Cat had a large bald spot where he’d been pulling out his fur. They both followed us around and needed a lot of affection and reassurance.
I’m so grateful for this vacation and they time we had to see new areas and spend time together, but there truly is no place like home. We’re blessed to call Missouri our home and while I love visiting other places, there is nowhere else I’d want to live!
