Back to the daily grind

Pixlr (3)Alright I am back in the US. The weather has been super dreary, mostly cool and often rainy since I have been back. Yesterday, Sunday, was a dreary, rainy day. But of course today, Monday, the sun is shining and it's supposed to be a beautiful day (around 70F/21C). How does that always happen that way?  We definitely have not been having typical May weather. Looks like today will be a pretty decent day but that of course doesn't help me all that much since I have to head into the office. Also going to shape up to be a pretty busy day so I don't think I will get a ton of chance to spend time outside. I'll try and go for a little walk during my lunch break if possible. 

Anyway, my return to the US last week Monday was pretty uneventful for the most part. Immigration at Newark airport was a nightmare though. There was something wrong with the machines and their whole system was backlogged and clogged up. The lines were sooooo long. It was absolutely crazy. I had never seen it like that. I think it took me about 2 hours to get out of the airport. Crazy. 

The week itself went by relatively smooth. Fighting jetlag, dealing with catching up at work and whatnot. All the usual stuff I guess. The weekend went by way too fast. Also nothing unusual there. 

Saturday we had a vet appointment with our cat Sadie. Mainly a check-up appointment. She's one of the more neurotic cats I have ever met and since Sherlock came into the picture she has been even more neurotic. She really does not like the idea of Sherlock being around. Anyway Sadie's appointment went fine (I was honestly not convinced I'd get her into the carrier but I did) and they said she's fine, her check-up and exam was fine. So she's just weird. :) We'll need to continue working on integrating the cats and hopefully at one point things will return back to normal - whatever that means. 

Sunday we went to see the new Avengers movie. I won't post any spoilers but will say that I did really enjoy it. I thought they did a good job. I am really not a super heroes movie person at all but have seen enough now to be somewhat invested and get the basic stories. I also enjoy the humor behind all of it. Anyway, it was a good movie. Afterwards we were going to do brunch but the place we wanted to go to was super packed so we ended up at different place which was fine. Hung out there for a bit before heading home and catching up on some recorded TV. 

Letter/Mail Update:  Letters have been written to and were all mailed on Wednesday to: Lotte/Denmark, Celia/MA, Kimber/Canada, Nina/WA and Tiffany/OK.
