I was blown away :)

Saturday, June 22, 2013

So I haven't been around much the past couple of days getting ready for a get together that we are having tomorrow. I just knew that I wouldn't get off the computer if I did more than the minimum on Spark. I love my Spark Friends and don't mean to "ignore" them, but my list of things to do just kept growing instead of shrinking. Not as organized as I should have been.
Well, yesterday DH offered to take me out for breakfast, so off we went. Shortly after that DH had some things to do so he took off to do them. I was enjoying the alone time (can always get more done when I am alone in the house). I was doing some last minute cleaning upstairs when he called to me that he was home. I went down to see how he fared in the storm that had blown through while he was "running around".
While I was talking to him, I got a tap on my shoulder....surprising me as we are empty nesters. Lo and behold it was our son (the one who lives in Portland OR). Needless to say I was blown away. Happily crying.....
A couple of months ago Josh was not going to be able to come home for the party do to work scheduling etc. I was a little bummed out, but this would not be the first party he would miss. There obviously was a change in plans and I was left in the dark (in case it would fall through again) I guess everyone who thought he might come home for the party knew he in fact was coming home.....wait until I talk to them LOL.
So my dear friends this may be the last time I am sparking until Monday.....I am going to enjoy this weekend spending time with my whole family.
Thanks for stopping by. Many hugs going out to all of you. Must say I am in an exceptionally good mood today! emoticon

    Oh, Barb! I'm so happy for you all about this one. I know how I feel when I see my son, and he isn't away for long periods of time. Your party had to be so much more fun with him there. It's a great thing when surprises work.

    Oh Barb..this was wonderful. Nothing more special than seeing our children and being with family. I am sure this get together will be very special. So happy for you, my friend. ((HUGS))

    What a happy surprise! Life is always full of surprises, and you got a great one yesterday! Remember, Spark is for fun, and not 'a job'. No one will notice that you're busy and away for a day or two. Or if we do, it's no biggy. At least that's how we should regard this place. I do my 'sparking' right after my walk, but if I have a busy day I don't worry about missing Spark. It's all good Barb. emoticon
