Good Morning friends! I'm sorry it has been awhile. I had a terrible time trying to get online while visiting my family. The internet connection left much to be desired. I could get online long enough to check email most of the time, but not nearly long enought to write a post. So here I am. I arrived about 12:30 a.m. yesterday, (Tuesday), but was up bright and early about 6:00. I spent the day catching up on things. My dear Hubby had cleaned the house and all the laundry and dishes were clean. He is a saint, truly he is. I had my laundry, grocery shopping and nursing home visits to accomplish though and it took most of the day. I also made a yummy macaroni salad early in the morning before the house got to hot to boil the pasta and eggs. Much was accomplished and the day flew by.
Last night I was up reading until midnight because sleep was very elusive for me. I was up again this morning at 5:30. I go through periods like this where I just can't seem to sleep, no matter what I try. I walk around in a state of semi-exhaustion. Then, after a few weeks, things seem to click again and I can sleep all night. I wish I could figure it out since it just seems to have started in the past few years. I wonder if it's hormonal? But, then, I blame all strange things on hormones these days. <<grin>>
I had a lovely visit with family. A little awkward at times because of my fairly recent decision to wear a headcovering full time in observance of 1 Corinthians 11. It could have been worse though and I enjoyed my time. The picture below is my mother-in-law. We spent a lot of time playing dominoes! She loves the game and only gets to play when she is with hubby or I. Since I started dating Hubby when I was only 15, she's more like a mom to me than mother-in-law. She is the only one of our parents left. We shopped some, ate out some and just hung out at the house some. Since she doesn't drive very much, she saves up all of her errands that are more than a mile or two from the house until I visit or hubby's sister is available. Mom is blind in one eye and doesn't have peripheral vision in the other eye so it's good she doesn't drive much.
Have a wonderful day everyone and I'll try to check back before we leave.
