the baby has landed....

it will be a real test of family love and acceptance this week, because we did not get the house cleaned as we wished, nor stuff put away like we wanted to. Steven sick, I fell and sprained my ankle pretty well yesterday while taking the dog to the salon, john working, evan working and school.....
They have landed at LAX and are now visiting Grandma in Alhambra. I did get most of my collection of paintings up in the living room last night. they look really good in a horizontal line on a large blank wall. Two I picked up at goodwill, two were painted by my aunt, and one is a fragment of a larger, damaged painting from the 1800's that was frame (got that at an antique store in SC.)
Praying for good weather tomorrow....they are predicting some rain in the am, our outside park picnic for 60 friends and family is at 1pm. food is ordered, and we cannot fit that many folks into our house.....sigh....

Glad to see you have your priorities straight--pictures get hung before that other stuff! Sorry about your poor ankle, but the dog looks gorgeous after the trip to the doggie salon, and no one really cares about that cleaning stuff anyway. Really!

thanks, Queenie! cleaning only went SO far, and I made the mistake of putting my son in charge of cleaning the bathroom. his idea of "clean" sure is different than mine.... We had a really nice time at Clark Park today with lots of family meeting John Curtis for first time. now, getting psyched for disney, hollywood tour, and trip to san diego zoo. AND, JC is coming to my storytime this week!
