sunday again, already?


photographer unknown


It's a beautiful Sunday today, 10 C°!
Bill is in the front yard fixing the truck (fuel pump) the kids are downstairs cleaning, and I'm trying to figure out what to make for supper on Tuesday night. Bill's sister and BIL are coming for supper and will see our house for the first time!

I love having people over for dinner. It's one of the only times our family will pull together to do a major clean (floors, entranceway, windows, bathrooms - it's a Spring Clean every time!)

Update on Em: She's doing very well and so is Bill; in fact, there is a sense of freedom in the house that we have never had before. Tina's death kind of set off some memories for me (which kind of surprised me) but I went for my yearly physical on Friday and the doc gave me some Xanax to handle the anxiety.

I'll probably pick it up on Monday, not sure if I'll try it at all during the school day but save it for afterward - the last thing I want is to fall asleep while I'm supposed be working on geometry.

I'm off to finish the meatballs. Happy Sunday!

  1. Sounds productive and satisfying!
    My therapist told me about a book that might help...

  2. Have a great dinner, Kate. I feel that you will be fine, with or without Xanax :-)

    Rolf Hicker is the photographer :-)

  3. Thanks Teri, I will take a look.

    Doug - how do you know who the photographer is? I always do a search and rarely find an answer...

  4. I hope you had a great dinner. We love to have people over, also. Kind of gets our minds off the everyday stresses, you know.

    Hope you feel better.

  6. Kate... this is the first blog of yours I've read in quite some time. So sorry to hear about your tribulations... but they really are what give us substance and push our boundries out so that others can come in side.

    Glad to hear you are working on routine.

    Beautiful picture sweetie... I miss you!

  7. I'm the same as you and your family. I only "spot clean" until someone comes over. Then I move the furniture and scrub EVERYTHING (even behind the dogs' ears!).
