Three Cheers For Pilot-family!

Taking a break...
Pilot Dad is doing better!!! His eating is improving. The strides are not huge but they are definite! Finally!! He was able to work last week, 4 hours a night. The saving grace with that was Friday was his 'holiday' so he had a four day work week. We are praying for extra strength to make it through Friday.My few readers may have noticed I haven't been around much lately. It's very simple really. *big smile* Because PILOT is coming home for a visit! He will arrive next Monday and stay for a week. Surely I don't need to remind you that world around me stops whenever he comes for a visit. Not only is Pilot slated to come but the very next day, after he leaves my sister and her hubby are due to arrive. And no sooner than they arrive my nephew's wife, Melinda is arriving and bringing...*drum roll*...Emily Claire!!!I am so excited I can hardly contain myself. As some of you know, I am a perfectionist who also procrastinates when handed a very full plate like I've had since August of last year. Remember all the re-decorating I was involved in during the same time as Pilot Dad's cancer? And, all the "going through our mom's things" after Nana died? Well, as we cleaned out her room, knowing that new carpet was to be ordered we moved all her furniture into one of the two spare bedrooms across from the master bedroom.Then, of course there was the painting and new flooring in the rest of the house which necessitated moving more furniture etc into the same two bedrooms. And, let's not forget our new windows for the whole house! That necessitated our being sure there was a path and clear access to all windows! ACK!!!Well, with family coming they do need beds to sleep in. Which has caused me to get myself in high gear. That is what I've been working on so diligently over the past few weeks. Hence, sporadic blogging. Besides, I've not had much to blog about. My mind has been somewhere else, I guess. I sit down to type out something and then I think to myself, "No...that's not what I really want to say..." Or something to that effect.So I am announcing a short blogging break this week to enable to me to finish up before Pilot arrives. Don't give up on me, please! I'm sure I'll have pics to post and funny stories of our good time. In the meantime, I am mulling some ideas around in my mind for blogging. Things with a spiritual bent to them. Check back later, okay?

Dear Pilot Mom,
I wish you well with all the tasks you are taking on. Just remember to hurry slowly, I think Pilot wants to see his Mom in one shining peace.
Men never care much about home decorating, but seem to prefer food and laughter.
I have a smiling angle in my kitchen saying, "I clean the house every other day. This is not the other day!"
I am so happy for Pilot Dad.
Praying that you all will have a good time together.
Yours Felisol
