He's Home!!

Monday morning we got up as usual and I went downstairs to let the dog out. I did my usual scan of the backyard and gazebo and was sad that Gus still hadn't arrived home. It was day six and we had pretty much given up hope for him coming home. I left the sliding door open (as I usually do) so that Sadie could come back inside when she was finished.

All of a sudden, I hear MJ yelling from upstairs - "HE'S HOME, GUS IS BACK!!!" I walk into the kitchen and there he is! MJ came running down the stairs, scooped up GUS and we checked him all over. Other than being a bit skinny, he wasn't hurt, scratched, not even dirty. We gave him some food and he was good to go! Needless to say, we are elated that he is back with us!

Within minutes he was asking to go outside again.

We left him sprawled out on the kitchen floor taking a nice nap when we left for work.

He curled right up on the dog bed when we got home and took another nice nap.

Other than the fact that he has been meowing incessantly because he want us to pat him, he seems perfectly fine. Having him home was a great way to start the week!

In other news, today was the last day of school - YAY!!! Summer vacation is here for the next 68 days.

Tomorrow morning is our 20 week ultrasound - we'll post pics when we return. I think we are going to go see T0y St0r.y 3 after the appt.

Hi Carrie and MJ,

I loved reading your blog. I'm a teacher in Ontario, Canada. It's interesting to see how things are done at your school (via what I see in the pictures). I don't think I've ever seen as enthusiastic anti-drug campaigns around here.

I've been through somewhat similar fertility trials. I'm happy this one looks like it's going to stick for you! You'll make ideal parents, for sure! And your child will be a blessing for your extended family as well.

You both seem the have made great lives for yourselves. How lucky for both of you to have found such loving partners in each other! Congratulations!
