Wow! This has been a crazy week so far and who knows when it will end. Dawn and Cara and kids are here and they are so busy and so much fun. So far they have played Wii, played board games, gone to the library, gone to the beach and snorkled, done something called Letter Boxing that Cara taught everyone about....she's such an outdoor mom. Dawn and some of the kids made friendship bracelets. We visited my godparents and took them to lunch. . .imagine 14 people, 8 of which are squirrely kids, in a very small apt and then at a restaurant...but my godparents loved it. Cody made us a fire in the open hearth and we had hotdogs and 'smores. We prepare, eat or cleanup all day long. My kitchen floor is one continue sticky place...is this how it was when my 5 were young and at home? I remember some sticky but this?! wow! Oh and way too many boys who can't hit the target in the bathroom, if you get my drift.
It's been super nice having Robert home this week so he could enjoy the grands...even tho layoff is not a good thing to be on. Today is a bit gloomy...BUT the Florida truck arrives in just over an hour filled with wonderful peaches and I am determined to get there. Robert has a couple of HAVE TOs today which include visiting a young father who is in critical shape in the hospital with a hole in his esophagus. 3 surgeries in just over a week and I haven't heard anything good yet. We continue to pray for his recovery. I also have a friend whose father died and I need to make a visit there. As I look at the calendar I realize the last 3 days have quite a few items on it...so I am not sure which I will need to cancel.
Robert plans to drive up to Michigan on Friday to came with Ken and Connor and Evan for the Fathers/Sons outing...so I may go with and play with the girls or maybe I'll just stay home and work at cleaning the house and resting my poor, swollen feet.
OHOH...I hear stirrings...which means the food time will begin shortly.
