We just got back from a week-long trip to Des Moines. We headed out the day after Christmas and got home this evening. There was snow on the ground in Des Moines, which was fun. On the drive home I asked Susan how long she thought the snow would last and I can’t remember what we decided, but there was actually snow on the ground the whole drive home. Luckily the roads were fine.
We had a really fun trip, visiting Nick in St. Louis for an hour, and then spending a couple days with the Connors (Susan’s sister Mary, and family) in Kansas City, and then we headed up to Des Moines for a few days.
Now we are back, and need to get back into the daily grind.
