I spoke to him this morning, and they were all coming off of a bout with food-poisoning, after eating at their favorite Chinese restaurant one last time before moving back from Germany to live in Oklahoma again. They fly home on Thursday, God willing, and hopefully not stalled by the icy weather that is predicted to hit mid-America that day.
There's a possibility that I might go with these American flag type of samples that I got from friends in Oklahoma a few years ago. I've really been saving them for a quilt for Kelley, though.
Around 2 p.m., I settled down to quilt for awhile, and family promptly stopped by, so I quilted under a light that is situated over hubby's bed. I didn't get as much done as yesterday, but enjoyed good company and conversation all the while.
6 year-old, Zoe, asked me if I could come to the airport, too, when Grammy picks them up on Thursday evening. I said, "baby girl, you know that Nana lives a whole day's trip away from Grammy !" She said, "oh, yeh,..................................................................... then could you be there the next morning when I wake up?"
Tore my heart out to have to say no ! I said, "PawPaw's not well and can't travel that far right now, so I'll have to wait for you to come to me soon."
Hmmmmmmmm........we'll have to see which is harder--having them so far away, as in Germany, or having them so close and not being able to get there anyway ! Atleast we'll be through with the time-difference and international long-distance, so that I can call whenever I want !
Because you are all so dear to me, I would love to request that you lift an extra prayer tonight for safe passage home for my dear little family of five....Kelley, Tim, Zoe, T.J., and Seth ! Thank you so much !
