One of my best friends from high school and his mother are coming to visit us this weekend. I am so excited to see them. They are taking a long weekend to get away and chill which sounds absolutely fabulous to me. I am excited to have visitors, we haven't had many, and it will be the last time I get to see them before we move back to Japan.

J and I stopped to see them on our way home from Florida at Christmas time and I think that was the first time I has seen them in about 10 years. We had stayed in contact with cards and emails but no face to face in forever. The cool thing about it, was that once we got caught up, it was like we had never been apart, the conversation was so easy and fun.

Needless to say (and I hope they aren't reading my blog in the next few days) I am getting things in ship shape around here. It is a good motivator for me so it is fabulous. We are going to be putting our house on the market in a few weeks so this spring cleaning I am doing is going to be filling at least two requirements. Tomorrow I am finishing up the house (in between other appts I have) and then on Friday (since they won't arrive til evening time), J and I will be able to tackle a couple of yard issues we have been waiting on.

I purchased some new things for the yard the other day at Lowe's and now it looks like we are going to get another (and hopefully our last) freeze of the year this weekend so I will have to bring some of it in...oh well, at least I didn't get it in the ground and then have it all freeze...that would have pissed me off.

I am hoping we will have some clear nights with a moon that we can check out in the telescope, a few logs on the outdoor fireplace and a nice warm hottub with some glasses of wine to go with it....sounds like a nice weekend to me. What will you all be doing?

I'll be going up to Seattle with several other girlfriends to spend the weekend girl bonding and supporting our friend who had a cancer biopsy on Wednesday.

I'm also stopping on the way home to visit my grandpa in the hospital.

Sounds like a lot of fun... Friends like that can be hard to find (and keep).

Dave's daughter will be in town and we're going to my mom's for an Easter brunch, but other than that, the weekend will hopefully be kind of low-key.

I am so happy they are coming to your home to visit you. Remember darling, true friends do make you feel like you have never been apart. That is how you can tell who they are. I always knew these two were true friends of yours. Please give them my best. I love them too!
