I recently had my niece, Emma visit me for a week. Her parents, Judi (my sister) and Doug were away in Connecticut visiting our sister Jo Anne and her husband Joe. While there they partook in the "city life" by visiting New York City and attending a comedy concert by Whoopie Goldberg and Joey Behar (hope I spelled those right). Needless to say, shopping was involved.
Emma, who is now almost a teenager, was on her better behavior. If she had been on her best behavior, she'd have cleaned my house and done all the cooking and laundry. Unfortunately, those fell to me and I have been slacking off.
As it turned out I had to get up at 7 a.m. and wake Emma and then drive her to school each day. As you can guess, my usual routine of going to bed at 2:30 a.m. was not a smart move. Last night I went to bed at 9:30 p.m. I woke up twice before 2 a.m. with nightmares. That will cure me of going to bed early.
We have indulged ourselves by watching video and cable movies repeatedly and reading in bed. Hope you. too, have had a lovely week with a special person.
