The way it should be!

DS is home for a few days. The small city he lives in had a major water line break a few days ago and he still doesn't have any water. He decided to come home last night so I could do his laundry so he could shower and shave. It is so much fun having him home and everything, once again, feels normal.
I got up earlier than DS to go to work. There are a few dead giveaways that let me know he is home.
1. PS2 and DDR in the family room floor.
2. Laptop also in family room floor, with a phone cord strung all the way across the room.
3 Toilet seat up...why can they never put them back down?
4. Clean laundry all over the dining room. I washed his laundry and put it in the dryer this morning and he got it out before he left for work...and crammed it all back into the laundry basket he brought it home in and put it in the dining room. Then, if I had to guess, dug to the bottom and got out work clothes...
5. Koko (the dog) is beside herself with more person to drop scraps.
6. One more person to tell me he loves me every day.

I asked you all last week to pray for my friends husband...and a few other people. He is doing better, they found out he has lymphoma but that is not horrible news, at least they have something they can treat. He is off the ventilator now, doing better, but not great just yet. His mother, who also had cancer, passed away yesterday morning. My mothers aunt also passed away yesterday.
My husband has to go to court in a few weeks for a wreck he had when he hit an ice patch last week. He didn't get hurt but busted an electric pole. DD hit a curb and busted one of her new tires. I put new tires on my van last week and since then haven't had any trouble on these snowy mornings. January is almost over and I will be glad to see this one go.

Can you imagine how much traffic I'd get on my blog if I made Dateline? Of course, they's all be wiener loving wackos but they's still be readers!!

Awww, Katy, I'm so glad DS is home for a few days. There is no such thing as too many people saying "I love you" too much per day. Prayers, prayers, prayers for all!

Nice for DS to be home. And, I'm so glad your friend's husband is doing better - they at least have a course of treatment - I will continue to keep them in my prayers. See you soon and take care. Kellan

And here I was today enjoying my first day of being completely alone since the middle of December. No contractors, no house guests, no kids.

It must be nice to have DS home for a few days. I'll be thinking of you and your family!

Sounds like you've had a rough start to 2008. I'm glad you are enjoying your son now and thanks for stopping by.

Btw, I am from Northeast OH
