I was up at 5 am eager to get home. I love Cuba, but I miss Balt and I'm excited to see Jessi. By 7 am we were on the bus on our way the airport. We were going to have a 5 hour lay over in Miami but our flight was delayed in Havana, which seems to be expected, so it ended up only be about 3 1/2 hours. It gave us gals time to enjoy one last meal together before heading back to the Midwest with milder temperatures. It was a life changing trip for all four of us in different ways. I feel different. It was a long travel day. At 10:30pm I rolled into my driveway with Jessi and Balt waiting outside for me. I could tell that Balt had not missed me quite as much because Jessi had been here for him. The house was not quite a mess, but there was hair EVERYWHERE! I didn't care how late it was, I had to vacuum!! I showed off some stuff to Jessi and Balt and finally am in my own bed!!
