another cold day here on the prairie...

I have a couple of cousins coming in tomorrow evening...

haven't seen them is so many years...

I can't wait...

poor Deb is from Arizona and this cold weather has got to be getting to her...

they will leave Thursday afternoon...
Sheila has a large family and they are gathering on the weekend before Deb has to head back home...
they just got back from a cruise...
where flip flops and sand between your toes weather was happening...
and while she will be here...
single digit days and below zero nights...
there will be no porch sitting here...
;)
I am flaring, of course...
so I didn't get to the housework today...
but ready or not...
they will invade...
that's how our family rolls...
we invade...
and it will be the best time...
its going to be too cold for me to take them shopping or out to eat...
so we will just hole up here and catch up on 40+ years...

the track lighting I ordered yesterday, came today...
the guy doing all the installation will be here in the morning to get started on the prep work...
and as things come in this week and next, he will be putting things in for us...
he will also be back to caulk the windows for us in the spring when it warms up a bit...
exhaust fan is scheduled to be here on Friday...

had to call about our phone today and got that working again...
couldn't take incoming calls but could make them just fine...
rebooted the system and its all working and good now...
and the guy even disabled the voice mail for me!
been wanting that gone for years, but they couldn't do it before...
so now all I have to do is worry about the answering machine...
yippee!
before I had calls going everywhere and sometimes it took 8 hours or more for the ones on the voice mail to show up...
so, now I will know right away if I have missed a call...

and the one call I did miss yesterday was Fed Ex for Doug...
he goes Monday to orientation finally!
he is a happy camper and will be working like 11- 2:30, midnights to start...
he will have to do that for a few weeks and then he gets more hours...
so, I will be MIA tomorrow...
sorry about the long post...
;)

Hi Tete, enjoy your cousins and time spent catching up. Hope the flare calms and you just enjoy your family.
Looking forward to your lightening.

Tete, Seems much is going on at once there. It will be some fun I bet. Don't worry things have a way of getting done eventually. Blessings to all. xoxo,Susie
