Guess What?

They're-Here!
Cora & Gwen arrived on Thursday. Safe and sound.

Still not sure when their STUFF is arriving, but they brought as much clothing and immediate need items on the plane with them, so they're good.

They've been trying to relax, after a very busy summer. I'm letting them sleep and rest and just BE in a place not filled with moving boxes.

Yesterday, we walked to the Dollar General, and picked up a lot of school supplies, and then it was off to the grocery store to get the fixings for "Big Sandwich". Here's a photo from the archives of a "Big Sandwich" from the past.

As you can see, it earns the name. (And we ate around 2:30 and no one was hungry enough to have supper later.)

Then, since I work in the glamorous world of Information Technology, I had to work most of the time from 4:45 to 11:00 at night Saturday, on line and on a conference call, so the girls played board games in our bedroom. :-( But there was a gap in there for us to take a walk of a couple of laps around the park. :-) And I had to crawl out of bed to start work at 6:45 this morning (Sunday).

Only to realize I was supposed to start at 7:45! So, instead of waking my beautiful bride, I thought I would start a blog post, while listening to a very annoying jazz loop of hold music. It was SAXY. It was not SEXY.

Today should be filled with more Back-to-School shopping and maybe an oil change.

I'm gonna enjoy the heck out of this.

Gwen said...

Holy shinola! I wanna piece of that sammich!

It sounds like y'all are settling in nicely. Makes me very happy.

Shana - Yeah, the worst part about the jazz loop, is that I can still hear the echos of it 3 hours later.

Gwen - I would love to see what you and Laugh would do with the concept of "Big Sandwhich". And a side of Bloody Maries.

Celebrating the arrival of your wife and stepdaughter with a big sandwich ... I can't think of a better way t celebrate.

Cora said...

That Big Sandwich was DELICIOUS!

And the back-to-school shopping was fun. Kinda. Until I made Gwen try on new clothes and she went all cranky-teen-girl on me. What kind of teenage girl DOESN'T want new clothes, I ask you?! Huh?! I just don't get it....
