Best Monday EVER

I have insurance! MRI is being scheduled as I write. That was the best news ever ........ or so I thought.

I indulged in some pain meds and was sitting here, staring stupidly at the TV, playing solitaire, snug as a bug in rug, surrounded by love of the canine variety. Counting my blessings, I was, when the phone rang.

After muting the TV, I answered and heard my daughter's voice. This one rarely calls me, I usually call her. This one, the mother of Layla, my lovely granddaughter I can't see enough of. "Hi Mom" she says full of cheer. She asks how I am doing and I tell her the good insurance news and then she tells me even better news.

She is coming to see me. Just her and the lovely Layla, for a long weekend. I am so excited. It has been 6 years since they were here! What with baseball and ballet, they have been tied to home every summer. Now that Gage, the baseball player is all grown up and on his own, we only have ballet to work around.

I had trouble getting to sleep last night. I was planning meals in my head of all her favorite foods and then my mind went on to list all the things I want to get ready for the visit. She wants to come soon after my surgery, so we still have to wait until I get all those dates to plan around. Se was going to surprise me, but she knows her dad too well. He would have told me ....... and I would have had to remind him to get them from the airport and to not let it slip that he ruined the surprise.
