Ok. so I got the painting done. But I didn't get all the cleaning done that I wanted to. Alair got sick, and for two days didn't eat, drink, or do any thing. She threw up. And wanted me. So I just shoved everything into the other bed room upstairs and shut the door. Now Allison is coming this weekend. She will stay in that room. Oh well!!!

Apple seems very nice. Very easy going. She is going with a teacher and her husband this weekend to the Black Hills. She has been at teacher workshops every day this week and went shopping after school one day, so I haven't seen her a lot. She seems happy, but misses her Canadian boyfriend, who is also a teacher in Thailand.

Allison called on Monday with the good news that she and Chris are expecting!! Yippee!!!!!

Alair's birthday was a lot of fun. We had homemade pizza and build your own sundaes with homemade ice cream. She got lots of presents and was thoroughly overwhelmed. On Sunday, Andy's future in laws came over to swim and eat lunch. They are very nice and eat a lot, but not in a bad way. I like people that aren't afraid to be themselves. We talked alot and had a good time.

Erik is home from his summer job for a few days. He will move up to school on Saturday, and school starts on Monday.

Our exchange teacher comes on Saturday. I still have to paint!!

Still cleaning!!! I keep geting interrupted. Nice interruptions though. Audra, Andy's girl friend in high school came to visit. Most people think this is strange, because they have each moved on, but she's a very nice girl, and we talk a lot. She used me as a shoulder when she had family problems and that was just fine. We both like to read and borrow books to each other.

Alair's birthday party is this week end. Aubrey, Claire, and Allison are coming down. The guys have to work. I guess we are having home made pizza and home made ice cream. We are also going to move more things around as Apple comes next week end. Erik and Andy will be here also.

The weather has been great lately. Low 80's. Some rain, we need it.

We had a great time in Indiana! Friday night when we got there, Andy's mom had supper ready for us, We met Andy's dad, sister and her husband, and Grandma Jean. Grandma and Alair got along great. Saturday, we went to Amish places. Bought meat and cheeses and shopped. The flowers were just gorgeous. They take such pride in their gardens. Sunday we went up to Lake Michigan. Alair really liked playing in the sand. We were at the town of St. Joseph. It's reslly touristy but neat. Monday we went antiquing. Tuesday we came home. It's always interesting to see how other people live.

You never realise how much you depend on electricity until it goes out. Thursday we had a large storm and lost power for about 6 hours. The phones were out for a while also. Land lines and cell phones. I was supposed to make sheet cakes for a wedding on Saturday, but couldn't start that either. Alair really didn't notice once the black skies cleared some. She just played with her toys like normal.

Rachel came over for supper last night, She goes home on Sunday.I still don't have the cakes done. I do well under pressure.
