A really great day

Hello again!

Today was the day for our free carpet cleaning. Truth be told, it was bartered. Our nice cleaner knows all we've been through in the last few years, so he offered in exchange for us placing flyers around some neighborhoods. That worked in nicely with Michael's job selling roofing.

I order to be out of the house, we went out for Einstein's Bagels this morning with our coupon for 1/2 off. Then we headed over to spend the day with Erin and Brian, our newlyweds.

Aren't they sweet?

We watched a great movie - Charlie St. Cloud, then Erin and I went to pick up burger fixings. Oh, how I've looked forward to a day like this! Spending time with my adult kids is one of my most treasured activities. I am so very thankful that Erin and Brian are settling in, and close by. Those of you with children know that the years fly by all too quickly when they're young. We are truly blessed.

Here's a shot of our nice, clean carpets.

While we were there, Erin made us a CD of their wedding pics, so we came home and enjoyed seeing what fun we all had with SNOW on May 1st, remembering how everyone pitched in and punted to make it a wonderful beginning to their lives together.
