I'm home...recovering from jet lag and catching up with my family. The kids did really well and Jeff seems no worse for wear.
Speaking of Jeff, his leg pain is gone. The second doctor discovered a cyst on the back of his knee and it possible that is what caused the pain. Maybe we will never know.
We wanted to take Jeff's niece and nephew down to the ocean last night before we put them on a plane back home today. We also wanted them to have some of New England's famous fish and chips. So off we went. After dinner, we were walking by the water when someone who shall remain nameless, realized she had lost her retainer.
It was lying on the table in a napkin (and yes, she has been told to never do that).
The table was empty.
The wastebasket was not.
However, the trash that the retainer had been thrown into had already been taken out.
We asked to go through it. Yep. How totally gross is that?
They got several bags out for us. Gave us gloves. We went through it all, piece by disgusting piece.
Did I mention how gross it was?
But we pressed on.
Alas, said expensive hardware was never found.
Welcome home and back to parenthood.
