The weather is about to change and I'm ready for it. Let's just say I have to step outside a lot lately to cool off in a 65 degree house. Man, I never thought I would look forward to winter. I so detest the cold and the dreariness but my body says, "Bring it on." I really need to not be sitting here typing out words as I need to get the house and myself ready for the big graduation party tonight. We celebrate B's success on achieving her master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. It is awesome and she has worked so hard for it. It should be great fun with about 50 people here. We have hired a friend of hers to cater the event. He does sushi on site and should be nice entertainment value for everyone. I decided to only serve beer and wine and pop for the liquids. I didn't want to have to deal with the hard stuff. So yesterday B and I hit the liquor store and grocery store to stock up and last night I put it all out on the back porch to get pre-chilled. The ice chests will be filled at the shop (we have a commercial ice machine) and brought over by the SIL and stocked. Last night I was a little freaked out though as we were trying to drift off to sleep the police helicopter started doing a look-see over the neighborhoods with its spotlight and very loud noise. The first thing I thought was that we forgot to set the alarm, so I crept out of bed and set it and then I realized that all that liquor was on the back porch. I crawled back into bed and tried to drift off to sleep but my mind started playing tricks on me and running away with my imagination. What if the bad guys found our "stash" and started drinking it then got all rowdy and decided to break into the sliding doors and, and, and.....snore.......Wow, my mind sometimes. What's bad is I slept horribly last night too. I tossed and turned but I did dream a lot. The Hubby said that meant I got to REM sleep, whatever, I tossed and turned. Okay, enough blah, blah, blah...I have to get cracking. Lots to do, people to see, places to go....Toodles!

(Tomorrow A comes home!!!!! Can't wait to see her. It's been 5 months since her beautiful smile graced out presence. I will have both my girls, my babies, here tomorrow!)

I'm so happy for you, Jill. Have a wonderful time! Your mind works like mine. I have that happening to me at night, too. I start thinking about something and start worrying and then I can't get back to sleep. I don't know about REM sleep but my husband told me I was humming for a long time in my sleep. Sheesh!
