Got absolutely no more than 2 hours sleep last night!!! What in the world. I finally dozed off around 4:30 but kept waking up every few minutes and honestly felt like I never went into the deep sleep. Needless to say - no service this morning as planned but I did get some things done for Big D and I ran a few errands. I did something I hate - I went shopping! I made a deal with myself - I would go to the one store and if I found something - good - if not, come home. I started humming the Hot Flash song from the musical yesterday while I was in the dressing room but actually walked away with a few things. One thing I bought was a French Memo board - I liked it because it isn't as big as most of them are. I was going to put it in my office but decided I would use it for photos and put in right as you walk into my kitchen from the back porch. I'm not sure how I like it to be honest. I'll live with it awhile and decide. Big Al and Wayne came over later this evening for me to type up Wayne's talk for this coming Sunday. Of course Big A kept changing things and I was almost ready to "send her to the moon". Only people of a certain age will understand that comment from the show on TV called The Honeymooners.
Big Al called Kurt so he and Wayne could sing their German song together. These two people were a very important part of our children's lives as they were growing up. How do you not love someone who loves your children? It was nice to be able to spend some time together. My sister who lives in PA thinks we all see each other all the time - sad to say, that isn't the case. As a matter of fact, I can't remember the last time I saw Ruth. Now that is sad. I wish I could have gotten a better shot of Wayne but he was on the phone with Kurt. We were all talking about how Kurt learned the words after hearing Wayne sing it one time. I also showed them the pictures Leah and Kurt took from their trip in TX as well as some of the ones on my Blog. When I got to the one about the poem he wrote for my niece who died awhile back, he asked if I could make him a copy. I feel kind of bad cause I know they will both cry after they read it again. Overall though, it was a great visit. Now I've got to get up from here and pack so I can get away from here early in the morning for my big adventure down East! I know it will be great if all we do is sit around yakking the whole time! I know it will be good for me.
