Have been having a wonderful time with company. Good to have them visiting except we've been eating way too much! Everything tasting so good..but need to refocus today and get back on track. Went to bed at 10. Not sure how long they stayed up. Woke up around 4:30 so must have gotten a good night rest.
Went to brunch after church with the girls. Guys went to a train show. We had my friend Betty, Mom and another lady. We had a nice time. Then we went to visit friend who'd just had a double mastectomy. Can't believe you get out of the hospital so quickly and that she was doing so well. This lady has been battling Leukemia for over 20 years and she is still going strong. She is an awesome lady. They told her she wouldn't have children and she has 3 wonderful kids. She is the major breadwinner of the family and she keeps on going. She has a positive attitude. You go there to cheer her up and she cheers you up.
Realized how lacking I am visiting those who are ill.
Mom was feeling good. She spent the day with us. Couldn't believe it. She enjoys Betty. She is funny and nice to be with. Took her home around 5. Worked on putting together a puzzle. Thought she'd want to go home after brunch and then after visiting our friend and then she wanted to hang out with us all afternoon. Hopefully we wore her out and she'll have a good night's sleep.
Have staff teleconference first thing this AM.
Company enjoying themselves and they decided to stay another day until Thursday. While I'm working they are visiting and hanging out with other friends in the area. Glad they feel comfortable at our B&B Kinda miss having company. We used to have company more often and I enjoy entertaining. With working full time-it's hard to fit it in.
Off to make it a great day!
