Mom and Dad got in last night! Today will end with friends over for fun and food and good times. I need to keep in mind that these are friends, this is family, and there’s no need to get stressed out or worked up or worried or overwhelmed. Just plan some good food, clear the surfaces, keep it easy, and enjoy. Meanwhile, it’s quiet here this morning…there are four people still sleeping upstairs and Charlotte and I are doing our early morning thing. She’s watching a show, munching on some cereal, and I’m browsing the internet with my coffee. I had hoped to write in my regular journal with a regular pen this morning but lost the time, so I’m doing this. As long as something writer-ish goes on each day, I am fine.
