He's home!

Ian is home!!  It really was a nice quiet two weeks but I missed this little guy.  Not that he looks so little any more.  Every time I send him to California he looks like he has grown 2 inches and matured by about 6 months.  I can only imagine what the family things when they see him.

He had a really good time visiting with everyone.  My dad got to spend some special time with him which is nice.  I know they both miss each other....they are good "buddies".  They have this ritual of going to Mimi's Cafe for chicken gumbo on Saturday nights.  It is the highlight of Ian's trip every time, chicken gumbo with Pa.

He also went to the San Diego Wild Animal park, an Angels game with Jeff's dad and a fantastic Galaxy soccer game where Jnet got to see Beckham up close and personal - with his shirt off!  Wow, I get all dizzy just thinking about it, the man is beautiful!!  Ian came home with a renewed love of soccer, a Beckham jersey,  an Angels jersey and a cell phone bill as long as my arm!  Should have never taught him how to text me.  

We are glad that he has such a great personality that allows him to be away from us and not be scared or lonely, but we miss him when he is gone.  I mean seriously who takes out the trash around here while he is gone  : )

No sleep

You ever have those nights when your brain just won't turn off?  I have been suffering with many of those nights lately.  I just can't seem to fall asleep until a ridiculous hour in the morning.  So you get the pleasure of staying up with me tonight!  : )

I read last week that if you can't fall asleep then you need to get out of bed and do something.  Nothing terribly active and certainly don't eat, but something to take your mind off trying to get to sleep.  For the last week or so I have just laid in bed listening to Jeff snore (hope he doesn't read this) and willing myself to sleep.  It hasn't really worked all that well so I decided that typing up a little blog might help.

I don't really know what I am thinking about when I lay down.  I think I do the grocery list, my errand list, I work on some homework and then fuss about trying to sleep.  Jeff falls asleep so fast - like 30 seconds fast - I envy him.  Even when I am dead tired I don't think I conk out that fast.  

Well I am off to read a few emails and then try it again.  Wish me luck!!
