life is tough

Lots has happened since I last wrote here. My uncle died on January 30th. On Feb 1st, my daughter and I flew to Nfld. We arrived at 1am nfld time, drove 3 hours, slept 3 hours, got up and drove 2 hours then attended a beautiful memorial service. We spent the day visiting with family on my dad's side and drove 2 more hours to get back home. It was the hardest day I have experienced since Sophi spent 5 days in the hospital when she had a really bad seizure.

We were home for 5 days and then we had to make the trek back to the Yukon. This was much longer than when we went there. The flight back has several stops (I like to call it the Mail Run).
It took 12 hours once we got to the airport, to get to Vancouver. First we had to drive 3 hours to get to the airport. It was a long and horrible day, but I have great friends in Vancouver, and one of them came to pick us up at the airport at 11:30pm and got us back there by 10:20am to catch our 11:30 flight (which was late).

It was so good to get back. My huney was waiting for us when we got here. It was soo good to see him. It had been over a year since we have really spend any time apart from each other. I missed him. I missed my dog and cats. I missed my bed. It was good to get home and see the family, but it was also good to get back to the Yukon.

Wow, I guess I have 2 homes. Nlfd will ALWAYS be home. But the Yukon is home now too. My life is here...my kid, my job, my house, my pets, my honey..etc.

That's all for now folks. thanks for reading...lol
