This past week and a half has been amazingly busy for someone who does not work outside the home. I got home from helping my Mom on the 15th. We had friends who were in town for a conference staying with us, which was wonderful. They left on Saturday morning.

Saturday afternoon, some other friends from the conference came by after lunch and stayed for the evening. The Wii got a good workout and we all had a great time together!

Sunday we sort of vegged out and read and did laundry. Monday morning we went out to run errands and to pick out a replacement vacuum cleaner (thank the Lord for extended warranties!) Our friends from Midland called on their way into town for the wife to get her hair cut and colored by the colorist and stylist extraordinaires here in the DFW area.

Tuesday we had breakfast with our friends, then TBO and her hubby went on their way, while we began the beautification process! I was just the cheerleader, really, and even left for a while during the coloring process. We met up again for an early dinner, then they left for a few days at Lake Granbury.

Tuesday night about 9:30 I got a call from our friends...the lake house rental was not quite what they had expected. So they came back and stayed with us for the night and began looking at rentals again!

Off our friends go on Wednesday morning, inviting us to come down on Thursday evening for dinner. Errands to be run, grocery shopping to be done, bank deposits to be made...

Thursday I met our daughter-in-law and newest grandson and one of my friends for lunch. I tell you that this little guy is the cutest pride involved, of course. Then we drove to Granbury and had a tremendous time. We took a boat ride and looked at the gorgeous properties and came back and enjoyed a "gormay" dinner! I wish I could say I stayed awake on the way home, but I'd be lying!

Friday was spent with a lovely young couple for lunch and fellowship, then home to crash.

Saturday saw me running up I-35 to a baby shower, which was a lot of fun. Home now blogging about my week...

Next week I am subbing for three days...I will be ready for the weekend again!
