Guests In The House

Rich's brother-in-law is having surgery for esophageal cancer here at the workplace as we speak. His surgery was originally scheduled for 11:30 but they were running a little behind and took him in at 12:30. Last night they spent the night with us to avoid having to drive in for two hours this morning. It was nice to have them there.

We spent the past weekend getting the room ready for them so they would be comfortable. Got a brand new bed and set the room up really cute. Plus we can sleep in it in the summer when it's too hot to sleep upstairs. Anyway, Judy will probably stay with us the whole week that Tom is in the hospital.

The small bathroom is finally painted. Sunday we painted the ceiling. It looks really nice. I love the color and it goes well with the beige sink and the wood trim. Next up is the bathroom upstairs. We have to replace the vanity top first in that bathroom. The sinks have cracks in them.

Saturday Marie and I are getting massages, facials and manicures. It is going to be soooooo nice! I have been trying to keep my fingernails from breaking so they will at least be a decent length when I get the manicure. Then we are going to have lunch.

It's beautiful out right now. Sunny and about 70 degrees. I can't wait to wear shorts and flip-flops again. Speaking of shorts and flip flops, we are planning on taking a cruise with the kids in January. I contacted a travel agency and found a cruise in the western Caribbean that sounds really good. I am going to book it and then forget about it because it's a long way away and I don't want to think about winter right now! We are really excited, however and so are the kids! I already even bought a cute sundress! Alright, who am I kidding? It's all I will be thinking about for the next 8 months!

I hope his surgery went well. And I pray that he recovers quickly. My step-mom had this cancer in her esophagus too. I hope your cruise turns out great. Someday I want to take a cruise to a warm place. So you can advise me on a good cruise line and place?
