Rob called this morning. He talked to his Uncle Pete, and Pete and Jane will take the cats. They already have a dog and a cat, but will try this. Their daughter Sarah is so crazy about animals, so if anyone can make it work, it's them.
So Rob is a lot less stressed now. And I'm so pleased that our family is this awesome! Rob will pick up the tickets on Monday, so we'll find out for sure what time they'll arrive. He said it'll be on the 18th. But we determined that my small SUV won't hold the four animal crates and luggage, so we came up with an alternate plan. I'm going to take the train to Chicago and the El from downtown to the airport.
They'll rent a big SUV there and we'll drive to Quincy for a few days. Then we'll come up to Milwaukee (stopping by Aurora to visit with Jim and Karen). Finally, they'll go back to Chicago to fly to NC. It'll be a whirlwind, but I know I'll see them for a longer period of time during the summer.
Two weeks from today!
