Yesterday was one good thing after another: getting up smiling because even though it was hard to get out of bed, it was Friday, having a good and productive day at work, then a lovely dinner with the Wonders: ALL of us this time because Debbie's husband Ola is home from the hospital for a whole week to rest and regain his strength and put on some weight before facing chemo #3. He's been in the hospital for 8.5 weeks and the whole family was over the moon to have him home. Debbie was practically glowing, she was so happy that things are going better. She came late after getting the family settled but it was so wonderful to have our whole circle of friends together again and be able to talk over everything that has been going on in the past few months. I think we all needed it.
It was pouring rain and driving was pretty treacherous both on the way there and on the way back, and I didn't get home until almost 1:30 in the morning. All my family was asleep, snug in their beds, and Anders had left the computer on for me, so I checked email before heading to bed, only to find a message from my brother practically pulsing with more good news:
Not only is my mom coming for a long visit, but my brother and Simone confirmed their tickets for Christmas and are arriving for a week starting on Christmas Eve! Yay! Now I just need to get my seester over here, and the holidays would be complete!
And the email after that? From my dear, dear Bluepoppy saying she is back in action and blogging again! Yippee skippy! First Marilyn, then Sheryl, then Miss Doxie and now BP! Even Woman in a Window posted something today! Now I just need to hear that Wee is blogging again and things will be perfect! It's like an early Christmas!
Today I got to sleep in, and finish a good book and start another good one and putter about the house just getting things done. And then, to put the icing on the good stuff cake, my mom emailed me with a huge long list of books that she just bought...for me! And then I made a most fantastic dinner! And I get to sleep in tomorrow, too!
Man, this has been a good week. :) Here's hoping that YOU are having a good one, too. *showers sunshine upon your head*
