Since My Return

I came home with one more suitcase than I left with. That always seems to happen to me when I visit my family. This time it was mostly because Mom had fun at a big sale at KMart getting 2T girl clothes for Baby E to grow into. And I stocked up at the Distribution Center. Since I could barely carry the luggage I originally had, I had no idea what I was going to do upon returning to our very small local airport. I stacked up three suitcases on a row of chairs and was going to leave them there while I went to get my car with the baby and what I could carry. But God sends His tender mercies - a friend of mine from church just happened to be at the airport picking up a rental car for her own trip to Utah. She helped me load up my bags.

Dh called as I drove home. He was away on a motorcycle trip, seeing the sights on the Oregon & California coasts. He announced he was coming home early from his motorcycle trip because he missed me and Baby E. I really love that man. He arrived home at 1 am and I was very happy to see him. He had left yellow tulips and chocolates to greet me when I got home from the airport. I looooove tulips.

It's been really warm here, but since I came from Utah (103 was the peak there, I think), I'm doing okay. It's only in the 80s here, but humid. Thank goodness for that portable air conditioner we have in the living room. We bought a fan for the baby's room since I couldn't seem to get it below 77 in there, and mostly it was at 80. Too hot. We took the baby to the park yesterday. Despite enjoying the swing before, this time she was crying and literally shaking with fear. I don't get it. She did have some fun trying to climb around. After E went to bed, Dh grilled up some burgers and I convinced him to watch "Lifeboat" with me. It's an old black-and-white Alfred Hitchcock. We both liked it.

I finished Catcher in the Rye this morning. Somehow I made it to 26 without ever reading it. I really liked it. Though it had too much swearing. Ha ha

I'm a little embarrassed to say that I was an English and reading teacher, and I've never read Catcher in the Rye either. I probably should.

You guys should come up for the tulip festival next year! Then we can all hang out.

You've got a sweet man there.
