HOME AGAIN!


Greetings to all my friends out there, and especially to anyONE who has missed me. I arrived home last night after a very nice, though long, flight from Arizona. I was on a United flight on my return trip and miraculously had no one sitting next to me! Trust me, flying is so much easier without being jammed next to someone in the next seat. I did get patted down by security at the airport, however. I guess they thought those grandmotherly bulges I possess looked suspicious.

I have not had much access to the Internet while gone. I will try to catch on on all my bloggy friends a few each day.


It is good to be home with my own bathroom. Sunday, at my son's house, they discovered that the water from the showers was filling up the master bath tub. The toilets were not flushing. OH NO! You forget what a luxury it is to flush! We kept going back to the other house to use the bathroom! They spent almost $400 yesterday on a plumber who wasn't able to fix the problem. They may need to lay a new pipe from the house to the street. You never know what problems develop in a house that has been vacant for a while.

My fridge is filled with a Costco rotisserie chicken and Chinese (food, not people). It is what the man lives on when I am gone. In his mind it is so much better when I am here to feed him. I think, however, that it is just my wonderful company that makes his food taste better. Believe me, it is not my excellent cooking!

Today was kind of a loungy day of catching up on mail, and checking in with my kids, etc. Tomorrow I must put some of my new found energy to work on getting my own house in order. I will be back with more pictures and news!

Of course we missed you! Glad you survived the pat downs and other indignities. And the empty seat is a dream come true. My seat mates always take both arm rests, and have legs against my legs. It's more 'getting to know you' than I like to have with new acquaintances! So, any new projects in the works or are you resting up for a while and then cleaning the frig ;)

Welcome back, Marcie! Yes, it's good to know the airlines are keeping us safe from the blonde Nordic native-born Americans. They're dangerous :-).
