Almost a good time...

One of my favorite people in the world my friend "S" came with her 3 children yesterday.  "S" lives over 3 hours away, we don't get together as much as we would like.  We plan and plan and the day comes and usually one of her 3 children or one of my 3 children become sick and we have to cancel.  Yesterday we were in the clear, not one of the six combined children had any type of illness not even a runny nose.
"S" arrived about 2 yesterday afternoon, we talked for 3 hours strait, which is simply wonderful.  Face to face talk is so valuable when most of our talk is over the phone.  Let me add now that we hugged no less than 10 times!  HD came home at 5 and by 6 we were all ready to go out to dinner.  At dinner "S" mentioned how cold it was, funny thing it wasn't cold....
She was very sick all night, I won't give you details you get the picture.  We had plans to make soup and pie today, let the kids play and visit all day.  She left at 11 only after she finally stopped getting sick long enough to leave.
We almost had a great time.  I am pretty sure a few of my kids drank after a few of her kids so you all know what that means.  
Now we wait!
Hope you all are having a great weekend.  I think when HD comes home we are going to go to the toy store and write down everything the kids want.  And then  the shopping can begin!

I am sooo sorry about your friend and your visit...what a bummer, but at least you got a little time together.

We took our kids last weekend and have done a good bit of the "major" stuff for them. Now I just have to get busy on everyone else. I usually try to be almost done at thanksgiving and I am running out of time FAST! Have a great weekend!

I had 2 weirdo comment with one being on my birth of the baby blog. Some guy wanting me to look at his spicy gadgets website and another on my blog yesterday...I just deleted all of my posts.

I am so glad we get to see you at Thanksgiving! (Got a gift for you!!) But you can't open it until Christmas...jk.

So sorry to hear about your friend.
My little girl was up all night unable to breathe with a head cold.
She hasn't been sick for close to a year though so we are very thankful.
