What a surprise I got when my daughters text me to say they will have a few days off in a row and with a bit of help for gas money they could come home!!!! I immediately turned to my budget to determine how much help we could give. With a bit of juggling and some help from a friend, the girls will be home for Christmas. It will almost be like old times.
Beth will be here as well as all the girls. The six of us can be together and enjoy each other’s company. I’m sure there will be a touch of bickering and a lot of laughter. Those are two factors in the mix of our life that never disappear.
Ken has been working in the basement to get beds and areas cleared enough to give the girls comfortable and private places to sleep. Hopefully they will have time to decide what from the stack of things in the basement they want to take back with them. I don’t know if they will have time though. They are pretty much driving one day, being here one day, and driving back the last day. It is a quickie visit and I can’t wait.
