There goes the weekend.....

Poor Rick!  He has been trying to get home from San Antonio since 9 o'clock this morning.  Unfortunately, this is what he has been dealing with all day.
 But he is finally on a plane that is just flying out of Baltimore on its way to Albany.  He should be home around 1245am.  And if we're lucky, his luggage has already arrived as it made one of the flights that he did not.  So hopefully he is well rested from all that sitting around in airports because tomorrow is one crazy day.  We'll find ourselves at the high school graduation party of our friends' son, the funeral (in which I am one of the speakers-that's a whole different post) of a dear sister in our ward, the grocery store to buy dish soap (because when I went to do the dishes tonight I realized that when Rick told me we were running out of dish soap he meant that we were really out of dish soap) and something for us to eat tomorrow since we have nothing in the house except chips and salsa, and several loads of laundry so Rick can turn around and re-pack to leave again on Sunday morning.  So, if any of you get to sleep in and just take it easy, please do some of that for me.

P.S. It is now 1:32am.  Rick made it home and his luggage made it home.  Exhaustion has set in.
Good night!

The sound of...........

Listen closely.
 Can you hear that?
Come on, stop and listen for just a minute. 
Can you hear it now? 
Ahhh, of course you can't. 
It's the sweet sound of peace and quiet. 
The girls are in Florida for a few weeks and Rick left this morning for a week long conference in San Antonio. Rumor has it the girls are having a terrible time (not!) spending everyday playing on the beach and swimming in the surf. And poor Rick has just flown right into the middle of a multi-week Texas heat wave (though he did get to have Panda Express for lunch so we are not feeling too bad for him at the moment).  As for me, here I sit in front of the air conditioner alternating between my laptop and a new novel, trying not to break the silence.  I suspect this novelty will be short-lived and it will only be a few days before I'm singing the lonely blues.  But until then...............shhhhhhh.
