Since my brother's passing in February, I've felt like my life has been like running a marathon. Each event of the past few months from the sale of my Mom's home, to Todd's "Rocky Creek Scottie Reunion," have all been mile-markers along the way. Some of the miles traveled, like the reunion, were great fun! Others have been both difficult and challenging.
But now, with no more trips planned for a few months, most of the family matters settled, I have limped across the finish line and I feel nothing but relief. I think it all caught up with me. Last week I was feeling worn out and went to bed a few nights before it was even dark. Now I'm feeling energized and have caught up on several things I've been neglecting. This weekend I've felt no stress and have been able to enjoy being home.

It was an early start on Saturday morning for an overnight road trip....
Just as it was getting dark, we said good-bye to everyone and went to our hotel to settle in for the night.
It was great fun seeing a few of Todd's family members.
And catching up with a litter mate or two like Todd's sister "Sterling."
I enjoyed chatting with friends and making a few new ones.

Godspeed my handsome Gustavsen. I wish I'd known you when you were younger. But I have a feeling you were just the same carefree and endearing boy as you were when we met last year. I'm grateful to have had you as part of our lives and that I was your caretaker at this final season in your life. You taught me so much, and those lessons will not be forgotten. Run free until we meet you again at the Rainbow Bridge.
