Around dusk yesterday, I called Mr. Nielson from the car to let him know
I was about an hour away from the ranch with the boys and Lottie,
(who were super restless in the backseat).
The nine-hour trip from Utah to New Mexico went pretty smoothly,
and I only raised my voice (ok, yelled) three times in the car.
Mr. Nielson, Claire, and Jane have worked on the ranch since last week.
Finally, our family is united!
Since we needed groceries for the week, we met at the local Walmart
(about 35 minutes from the ranch).
Just as I was passing the ranch exit headed for Walmart, Mr. Nielson, and Clane
were exiting the ramp from the ranch and entering the freeway.
The timing couldn't have been more perfect and
we drove right next to each other, honking and waving
like we hadn't seen each other in years.
Sometimes it feels like years.
It's good to be back in the Land of Enchantment
and to be with my Mr. Nielson.
