Back in the ATL

I'm back in Atlanta. Transition from Italy to here was rough -- long trip and ugh, kind of two very different places. As Caleb says, "We're back in the Colonies."

Been up since 2 a.m. Atlanta time and now it's 10 p.m. Was traveling most of that time, including 2 hours Milan to Paris, 1 hour scrambling around DeGaulle airport, and 9 hours Paris to Atlanta. Gaaaah.

Luckie is going nuts over me and has wanted to kiss and rub on me for the entire time I've been back... and is doing so now in fact. Something tells me she's not leaving my bed tonight. The other animals are fine.

Now it's time for a shower and some food. So hungry!

Luckie is now dozing on my desk, after fussing over me for like 3 hours. Poor baby. Seems like it'll be days before she calms down!

Meanwhile I note that not only has her tummy fur grown back nicely in my absence but she's grown a bit overall, nearly approaching "cat" size. A *small* cat, but a cat.
