Ahh, it's good to be home again.

I made it back from India safely, but not without a bit of a hassle.  We arrived in Chicago after about 25 hours of travel only to find that our final flight had been cancelled.  The next available flight was 4 hours later.

I've been burned before in Chicago (waited for the later flight only to have it delayed), so my colleagues and I rented a car and drove home.  Thankfully there's a Starbucks at the Travel Oasis right outside of O'Hare, so we stopped for a couple shots of coffee and hit the road.  2.5 hours later we were at our local airport (I drove a little over the speed limit).  I love the flexibility of being able to drive home from O'Hare!

I arrived home to no find more snow on the ground.  It's mud season now, and the Trio are all looking (and smelling) a bit dingy.

Here's a pic taken about a week before I left.  I like this one of the Trio. Unusual to get one of all 3 together when they're not all on leash!

  1. What a whirlwind trip! I can't imagine such long travel and then having to drive at the end. Do you get a couple of days off to recover?

  2. We had colleagues from Argentina in town, so I worked for 12 hours yesterday. Then meetings all day today. Thankfully I'm able to take Thurs afternoon & Friday off. Only 1.5 more days to power through!
