Follow the yellow brick road...

Or various highways...at any rate, they led us back to Kansas! And we now have a king size bed for guests, so we're ready for anyone to drop in anytime (actually give me a little time to clean and try to unpack some more boxes before you come!).

We had a quick but nice visit in Memphis. We saw Mema and she is recovering from the radiation and chemo. It will be a while before she has the scans to see what has actually happened with the cancer, but hopefully it was wiped out.

Bryn and I visited Nikki and she seems to be doing pretty well after calling off the wedding and moving back home. I have four bridesmaids dresses to try to sell on Ebay...let me know if anyone needs some formalwear!

Bryn brought home a school fundraiser form today...yipee! I can't even begin to tell you how much I loathe school fundraisers - I know they need the money, but aaargh! I hate selling trash bags and magazines and cookie dough! You know where to come if you are in dire need of some trash bags...we'll have quite a stockpile here!

Ohterwise, it's back to the daily grind...Walmart, groceries, emptying the dishwasher, packing lunches, napping. Can't beat that!

Glad you're home safe and sound! And glad you had a nice, if somewhat short, visit.

Trash bags?!! Now that's one I've never heard of! E-mail me though, and let me know what she's selling...we'll be happy to buy at least a little something. Trash bags?!!

It's nice to go away, but it's always nice to come home :) Hope you get settled in soon, and yeah for a king size bed in a guest room! Our guest room is so small it barely holds a double :)

The kids here have been out selling too. Like Debi, I don't think I've heard of trash bags. I've bought wrapping paper and cookie dough and candy, but no trash bags :)

A king size bed for guest room! Wow, that is so nice and your guests will love you.
I've heard of cookie dough, wrapping paper but not trash bags, that's a new one to me!

Regarding calling ahead, I like this saying a friend shared with me years ago: If you're coming to see me, stop by anytime. If you're coming to see my house, please call ahead!

I hear ya!! When Libby went to public school, those fund raisers put me over the edge, seriously. Just wait, you'll get them every 3 months or so! It was overkill!! What gets me is that they put it all on the kids like if they don't seel anything, they won't get this wonderful (cheap as dirt) prize that ALL the kids are gonna get, UGH!
