one week

Here we are, one week into Gregory's winter visit already and I have to say, it feels like he never left. We morphed back into real, normal, life right quick, but I'm pretty sure that the rotten colds we had helped that out some (key takeaway: mucus is not sexy).

As what could probably go down as some of the worst timing known to man, last Wednesday, as I drove to the airport to collect Gregory, a nasty, chesty thing began to wrap its slimy hooks around me, and when Gregory hugged me hello, he stepped back, scrunched up his face and said, "Skippy, you sick?"

Yes, Skippy was sick, and within 36 hours, Gregory would be too.

Our first few days together were spent drowning ourselves in Robitussin and binge watching Outlander (sadly, Champagne not included), but on Saturday night, we did manage to go out on a date. Although I use the term, 'night', loosely. We earlybirded it, as in 5:30 earlybird, and within four hours, we were snoring off our cold medicine.

And then Sunday came and Monday, and then yesterday, and now here we are, Wednesday and one week gone already. But it's nice, and life and all, and that's what I've been waiting for all these months.

Oh, and if you're wondering how Gregory's reunion with Fifty went, here's the clip. Gregory and I were both surprised by Fifty's initial reaction. I told Gregory that maybe next time, he should go easy on the cologne.  



P.S. You'll have to excuse my horrible, shrieking voice, I was a tad emotional.

  6. Oh, that's so cute. I think at the start Fifty was all 'where the hell have you been, you leave without telling me anything' then he was all 'ah, what the hell, come here and let me love you'.
    Hope you guys are feeling well soon and have a wonderful Christmas together x x x

  7. I saw that same thing happen recently. A beloved owner returned after an absence and the dog started barking. I don't know why, but I bet Fifty is sure glad he's around now. I think it just means Fifty is really watching over you while Gregory's gone. I'm so happy you are all together for the holidays (minus the sick) and wish you the very best holidays ever.

  8. Oh, that is so sweet! I'm sure after 20 some-dd hours in airports and airplanes, Gregory probably smelled a little different than usual! It definitely didn't take Fifty long, though! Such a sweet reunion! :) It's really good to see you all together again. Feel better!!
