I'll be back

Yes, I promise I'll be back.
I just don't know when.
I'm in my home province, British Columbia, right now, having left my husband Dick, and our dog Lindy, to keep the home fires burning without me for a while.
I'm at my young brother's house. Our niece's husband is in the hospital in Vancouver, and I'm on standby here in the suburbs, in case I'm needed for errands or whatever.
It's the least an aunt can do.
Our niece, her husband, and their 5-year-old daughter have a cute little pug dog named Roxy. My sister-in-law picked Roxy up and brought her here to play with the big dog, Jasper, on Tuesday. Later, we went to pick up our grandniece from kindergarten. She was so happy to see Roxy sitting on Auntie Kay's lap when she got into the car!
Auntie Kay's jacket and slacks might have dog hair on them for a long time, but it's worth it because we had a lot of fun. My brother and sister-in-law have a 9-year-old and an 11-year-old. Our grandniece admires her "big cousins" a lot, and the three of them had a great time playing together.
Maybe we can do the same thing tomorrow.
And I'll be back blogging before you have a chance to miss me.

Best wishes and good luck to your nephew in his surgery. You are a good aunt! I have to tell you it scared me to death when your post popped up on my Google reader. It just shows the first few words of the post and it said "....I am in ...British Columbia right now, having left my husband" Boy I tell you I clicked over to your blogpost in a big hurry ;>)!!! (I didn't really ever doubt that the last part of the sentence would be something like what it actually is, but it did kind of strike me funny!) See ya when you get back!
