Surprises make me happy.

My oldest daughter just called and asked me what I was doing. I told her I was having dinner and she giggled. When I asked her what was funny, she said “we’re having dinner too. At Arbys.” It took a few seconds to realize she and her husband was only ten miles away. They were bored and decided to drive three hours just to visit. They’re staying at his mom’s house and will be here tomorrow to spend the entire day with me. Children are wonderful, especially after they’re married and begin to say things like, "gee, now I know what you meant when you said..." :)

I've moved in with Mom, so Angel will be visiting with me there. Still living out of a suitcase. It will take a while to move all my clothes and things I'll need.

Make me smile. Leave a comment...
