Oh, happy day!

We just received news this morning to make this Motherkitty's heart sing.

Son and his wife are coming to visit. They are leaving San Diego on April 1st and driving all the way to the hills of Kentucky just to see us. We have not seen them since Christmas 2004, so this visit will be especially happy.

I have put everyone here on alert. This means that we have exactly one week to get our houses clean! (Where's that magic genie when I need him?)

We will also be celebrating not only my birthday a little early, but we will be celebrating DIL's birthday. I think I will take everybody out for seafood. Seafood's good and will fit into our diet. I have an unused gift certificate left over from Christmas at a very nice seafood house and I'm sure daughter, son, and the family will enjoy it.

It will be so nice to have the family together again, even for a short while. I hope they will be able to be here when I have my surgery on the 10th.

I'm Happy for you Kitty. And I love the Cat picture, that's a hoot.
Also, good luck on Weight Watchers. I've had several friends lose alot of weight with their program, I even considered it myself.

Yay! It's been a long time since you've seen your son - no wonder you are so looking forward to seeing him.

The seafood dinner sounds perfect.

I'm very happy for you.

I can feel your excitement from here and I can just imagine you dancing when you heard the news. I'm sure you will have the time of your life.

That's a real reason to purr! I can understand your excitement, having not seen your son and his wife in so long. I hope they'll be able to stay for a nice long visit. We all need company to get the house in shape :) Have fun!

Good news indeed, hope all goes well. Glad you are willing to go out and eat (back on the horse), just make sure it is HOT! Hope you have a good visit.

I'm so happy for you. I've made that trip a couple of times. he's got some fun driving ahead of him.

One of the first albums I ever owned was Three Dog night, Golden Biscuit, given to me by my Aunt because she had two copies. It has Eli's Coming.

Eli should be here by the end of the week...have they called, are they already on their way?

Don't overdue to the point that you will be laid up when they arrive...remember, Eli used to live there, and they will be coming to see YOU and not the house.

AIP, I don't think they are leaving SD until Friday or Saturday. I'm guessing they will take three days to get here. They think they can make it in two, but I think 15 hours is too much driving for one day. They should be here Monday or Tuesday of next week. We are excited and making slow progress on the house. It's almost like spring cleaning, and who likes that.

That's great, I know you have missed seeing Eli. It's been a while. Our kids all have busy lives. Take it easy and don't make yourself crazy with cleaning and cooking. You can enjoy the kids just as well with dust bunnies under the beds. :)

Kitty - Awww that kitty pict is adorable!

Good luck with the house cleaning mission! 7 Days should be plenty. I hear Mr. Clean is on vacation so you're out of luck there! ;)

Peace & Hugs,

- Neo
