My girlfriend Val who now lives all the way over in Arkansas was visiting her mother in Wyoming and was able to sneak off for a day to come play with me. I likewise was able to sneak off from work for the afternoon to play with her. We actually ended up visiting three other friends at their places of work because they aren't blessed with jobs where you can just take a day off on a whim like I am. Man, I am so lucky in that regard.
Then my mother, sister, and niece stopped by for the weekend and I was able to put the new spare bedroom to use. Oh, it is awesome in a way I never expected to have a spare bedroom. We did a bit of second-hand shopping, soaked in the hot tub, laughed, ate pizza, and in general had a good time together.
Goodness, I am blessed with fabulous friends and family. And it is sure nice to have more room for them to come and stay!
