Here comes MY son at least!!  YAYYYY~!!~ 

sunshineI'm so excited!  Joe gets in early tonight, then we go to In and Out Burger for a quick bite, then on home for an evening of catching up!  We have a good bit planned, so I won't be around much until Tuesday when he goes back.  I can already tell it's going to go too fast.

I've been working on collages lately.  From the thrift shop a few months ago, I got a pile of picture frames and I'm arranging family pictures in them.  I've gotten one done of Joe and one of David.  Today, after I clean house, I'm working on Josh and the swirleythanglittle kids and maybe even getting to the bigger frames to do the ones of the whole family.  It's fairly daunting, but the end result is good.  Plus, it helps put a dint in the boxes of photos I've had behind the bar since February, waiting to go into albums and frames.  It's one of those many things that I want to do that seems to get pushed back because I don't even get done all of the things I need to do.  I am dire need of 6 more hours in my day and six more hours in my night.  Just a measly 12 hours.  Is that too much to ask? 

Thank you for the letters many of you have sent assuring me that you don't see me as sad or desperate.  That means a lot to me.  I'm always open to self-examination and given some of the events that have transpired this year, I would definitely consider that possibility, that I had slipped into a really bad place without noticing, but it felt odd to have someone make an observation about me that was in such stark contrast to how I see myself.

babysunI'll see everyone on Tuesday!  I hope all of you have a marvelous, STELLAR weekend!!
