now i am back, another wonderful morning...even if it is dark outside. missed my kids. they missed me. even got a report of a few tears shed on my behalf. makes me feel important. and toby missed me so much he slept smack dab in the middle of the bed, his big body literally hugging me...then because he sleeps on top of the bedding, it is virtually impossible to move after he settles in, and he did hog all the covers.
