It has been so wonderful having Sue and her family here for the weekend. Todd decided to stay over until today so that he and Dave could go golfing once more. Unfortunately Ryan had to go home early, and I do mean early. He had to leave here at 4:00 a.m. yesterday because of his work. He has such a responsible job as a manager for a large auditing firm. They wanted him to fly home as soon as he could because they were having problems. It was hard for him to even come and the truth is, we were grateful for the time he was able to be here.
The weekend did go by in a whirl, and I think everyone had a good time. There was certainly an abundance of food and fortunately quite a lot of it was eaten. I think we will still have to have friends come to help us eat leftovers. We roasted a turkey and half a ham, and we did pork for tostadas the last day. I don't really like to freeze turkey, so will have to do something with the leftovers as I still have quite a bit left and a person can only eat so many turkey sandwiches.
We will be busy for awhile, as there is a mountain of laundry to do with all the sheets and towels but we will not even try to do it in one day. They are all leaving this afternoon, and it will be a bit lonely until we get used to just having the two of us in the house.
I had Sue help me with the above pictures, and thank heavens we found out that it is not just ourselves that were having all the trouble. Sue had them too, so we know it is our computer that has the glitches that won't let us space properly. I will be glad if and when we ever get our new one. It has been over a month now, and they are sending us a new one. I can only hope that we won't have the problems anymore once the new one is in place.
We actually didn't do a whole lot while they were here. I was sorry that they couldn't come to church with us Sunday, but they had to go to the wedding. Dave's brother's son got married so they were in Orange County most of the day. Of course when they were here, the guys played golf each morning and fortunately we had very mild weather, in the middle 80's, so that was great! Dick, Sue, Dave, Karin, Bob, and I stayed home and just hung out. We did a lot of visiting and reading and just plain resting, altogether not bad at all. It might have been a bit boring for Karin and Bob, but they didn't complain. I think they were just enjoying not having to do anything because they both work pretty hard when they are home. Karin has been working long hours, and Bob has worked seven days a week. They will have that to look forward to when they get home.
Well, I'm off......want to spend a the last couple of hours with Sue before they leave. Dave and Todd should be home fairly soon as they went early. 'Til next Tuesday........................................
