I've been absent...


Posting has been scarce for me (in fact non-existent yesterday which is extremely rare) because I'm very busy getting ready for Jordan's graduation. My sister Shari is flying in tomorrow morning from Charlotte, NC to be here for the weekend. I am getting things ready for her to stay here (you know, all the extra stuff you do when you have a houseguest...sheets, towels, yada yada) and cleaning and preparing for the party. Right this moment I just popped a double layer chocolate cake in the oven, which is Jordan's request for his cake. I have a special topper I'm preparing with the help of Pastor T and my husband. I hope it turns out like I envision...we'll see but either way it's the heart/thought that count and I'm sure Jordan will get the message. Been getting some media things together too...will not say too much in case Jordan is reading the blog.


I had intended on sprucing up my yard for the occasion (beyond cutting grass, edging) I intended to do the weeding and such but it's been pouring down rain so we may just have weeds for this weekend as much as I hate it. Larry always tells me no one will notice or care but me. (Well, no one but me and the homeowners association. They send me letters when I haven't weeded.) A few friends have offered to help me however I feel a little weird having others clean my bathrooms, fridge, you know...just awkward a little bit. Although I'm sure the kind of friends I have won't care but I just always have angst asking somebody to clean my mess.

Have to go...the house is calling me and only today to get it done before Shari's arrival. She could always help me tomorrow when she gets here but I'd really like us to spend some time together as a family without cleaning. Know what I mean?
