There is a tremendous amount of unpacking, sorting, and rearranging to do, so I'd best get to it. Plus, I have a syllabus to write up that's due today, and I need to re-read a short story anthology first so I can do a good job with it. But let me just say that it is very good to be home, and our apartment is about ten times more beautiful than I'd remembered. Ellie's curled up happily in her corner of the couch, and Kavi has been rolling cheerfully on the carpet and floor for hours. Kevin's napping upstairs, I've made a cup of my favorite tea, and all is right with the world.
