He's home!

And feeling much better. Joe got home about 11am yesterday. I stopped by the house on the way to pick up Steph. He was glad to be home and was just getting ready for a nap. He slept from 2:30pm to 6:30pm. He needed it badly.

Steph and I had a great time at the photography studio. She was tickled that her name was on the door to her dressing room kinda like she was a star. We had 2 really great girls to help us, Lacy and Lacy. Easy to remember. One was the photographer and the other the assistance. They really made her feel special and complimented her on her hair and eyes. They also said that she was great to work with because she did what they suggested and wasn't demanding like so many of their clients can be. I can only imagine what they have to put up with sometimes. Steph took the attitude that they knew what they were doing much better than her and she was more than willing to do as they suggested. I could hear them laughing and talking quite a bit as they moved from site to site taking various pictures in various outfits. We go back in 2 weeks to see the proofs and place our order. I can't wait to see them!

I am so grateful to have a daughter that likes to include me in her life. We almost always have a great time together and we can be so silly sometimes. Well, I am the one that is silly more so than her. She calls me crazy but in the same breath will say she wouldn't want it any other way.

She was so glad to see her Dad was home. We all had a pretty quiet evening. I cooked me and Joe some cheeseburgers and he said that was the best burger he had eaten in a long time. That I had cooked it just right. The fact that he had gone without any substantial food for 3 days really showed then as the burgers I made were frozen patties from Kroger simply thrown on a non-stick griddle seasoned with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. I smiled and hugged him anyway. Anyone loves to hear something good said about their cooking.

Life is good.

Home never looks so sweet as when you return from the hospital!

I am so glad to hear Joe is home and back in your loving care. Shingles are horrid, I know. kidney infections are, too. You and I both follow 4th Ave. Blues, which is how I started following your blog. I hope, as I know you do too, to hear from Andrew, soon. Until then, and after, he'll be in all our prayers and thoughts, I'm sure. Take care of you and yours!! Bye for now.

I'm glad Joe's home. There's no such thing as a bad cheeseburger. The only thing that makes them better are green chiles.
