Yep, about 17 hours in transit-ish, nearly 30 hours awake, caught a little dinner at Charlie's with [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor on the way home. Just wanted to check in and let everyone know I got here safely. More tomorrow when I'm vertical again!

Thanks everyone, so much, for making this such an incredible experience. You are all fantastic.

I got home about 15 minutes ago and unloaded the car. All is well. Met fab folks, had a wonderful time, did awesome things. More when I have brain cells to bang together tomorrow.

We had a lovely day with [livejournal.com profile] martianmooncrab and other folks down at Powells, had dinner at Cypress with the Mooncrab's sister, and then hit the road about 7:30. We got home about 10:30 and unpacked Garuda. [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor and M will be here tonight as I just don't have the juice to deal with taking them back to Seattle, but they're sitting on the couch having a nice chat. I'm going to go grab some food here in a moment, then there will probably be the whole collapsing in a heap thing.

I've had a wonderful con and a great road trip; it's always the most fantastic thing to see my friends, both at the con and on the way down and back.

Much love and appreciation to everyone along the way.

I got home about an hour ago and have been unpacking and comforting the wee DoDC+3 about his two weeks of momlessness. All is well. :D

Home safe!

I arrived home about 45 minutes ago, after a bright, clear drive north from Portland. Many thanks to the illustrious [livejournal.com profile] martianmooncrab for her unfailing hospitaility when we stayed an extra night in her home.

Parts of the road north were a mess and I was getting so much splashback that Garuda was looking more like a mud slick than a car by the time we got to Everett, but I ran him through a car wash and now he looks fabulously shiny. [livejournal.com profile] alfrecht's mom just swooped through and picked him up so here I am all by myself with the DoDC+3 and about to toss myself in a shower and relax a little with a quiet evening at home.

I have tried to at least marginally keep up with email while I was gone, but if you're waiting for a reply from me, it may be a day or two before I actually get to it. I have over 300 messages to go through and some of those actually do require attention while others can just be quickly deleted.

Yesterday's táin leabhar Powells went very well; I got out the door for under $40 and got four very nice things while I was there. I have returned with a lot of things to think about and to be grateful for. Thank you to everyone I saw during PCon -- you were all made of fabulous and wonderful! It was great to meet new folks and to renew ties with those I've known and whose company I have enjoyed for years. Some very exciting prospects have come up from my time down there, and I have a lot of discussion to work through before making any firm plans about any of those suggestions.

Mom sent me an email saying that my brother will be in the US again early in March; he's got a job at one of the bases in Colorado Springs and he may stay for a while after that for a truck driving job if he can't get anything back on the base in Italy. We'll see what happens. I'm hoping (though not holding my breath) that he'll be able to make it over the mountains for my 50th birthday party at the end of next month.

Honeys, I'm home!

More later. After tea and the Interminable Pile of Mail.
