A House..........returned!

I know, strange title, but that's the way I feel. Like my house has been returned to me! Not that our guest was a bad guest. Just not a close friend that I would have enjoyed having stay with us for 2 1/2 weeks. I think I mentioned before that we really didn't know him very well. His wife was one of my dearest friends and she passed away in Illinois last November. He showed up out of the blue April 30TH. He drove here because the company he worked for went out of business and he no longer wanted to stay in Illinois. He wanted to return to Michigan, the state where he was born and lived most of his life. He did call when he was about 3 hours away from where we live to let me know he was on his way......TO.MY.HOUSE! Needless to say, I was a little shocked and surprised but managed to make the most of a difficult situation. He left before 9:30 AM Saturday.

I am now breathing a sigh of relief.....for a few days anyway. Thursday, Rachel and her family arrive from Kentucky for the long holiday weekend. It will be nice to see them and it will be different than our last guest........she is our daughter and it will almost seem like a homecoming!

I had wondered whether your house guest left and thought about shooting you an email. I'm glad he has left now, so you can have some time to yourself and hubby. I hope he'll be okay too. You were very kind to take him in.

How did things work out for him? Hope he is doing ok.

And...glad that you have your house back to normal. Even invited guests can be wearing after awhile and it's always nice to have things back to a routine.

Get some rest, dear one...and enjoy your family this weekend!
