Paul checked the British Airways website and Amy just landed in London. She's there for ten hours, then has a long flight to Seattle, then a short one to Eugene, then.....oh my, I am, as Scrooge said, "as light as a feather, as happy as an angel, as merry as a schoolboy, as giddy as a drunken man" just thinking about it.

I can't wait to see that girl again. I am so excited. How will I sleep? How will I survive that long day tomorrow?

A small crowd will be there to meet her, it sounds like. They all better get out of my way when she comes down that escalator.

Quote of the Day:
"We parents work so hard at raising our children, and then they go off and other people get to enjoy them."
--Bonnie, the sister-in-law whose two oldest are away from home right now


  1. "Quote of the day" How true, How true!!!! We can only be thankful that we brought them up in such a way, that other people do want them.

  2. Wasn't it "As giddy as a schoolboy?"

  3. Martha--I looked up the actual quote in A Christmas Carol and edited accordingly.
