Sept 12th - Our Company Has Arrived!

I woke up this morning with some vertigo and nausea.  I have a touch of vertigo from time to time, but it always passes in a few seconds.  I have never had nausea like this.  Needless to say, I had to lie down a bit more this morning until everything passed.

When I felt up to it, I did a few of the last things I wanted to get done before company arrived.  Bill had just an estimate to do, so he was here most of the time, too.  We rehung the curtains (Bill had washed windows the other day and I washed the curtains while he had them down.)  We got our bedroom and bathroom cleaned - they didn't get finished the other day.  On his way home from his estimate, he stopped at Costco for lunch and called to see if we needed anything.  I gave him the grocery list and he got almost all of it right there.  He did make the comment that it would have been cheaper to have gone to McDonald's for lunch!

Our friends from Utah, Jo Anne and Richard, got in around 5:00 or so.  They rented a car at the airport and drove up since they want to have their own car so they can do some other visiting while they are here for a week.  We had a great evening, talking and catching up on everything.  We sort of mapped out our agenda for the week, so that everything they really wanted to do would get covered.  Then about 11:00, when we were all in bed, Jo Anne knocks on our door.  Her brother, who is also part of our group of friends that get together regularly, was on the phone from Okinawa.  He and his wife are on a Military Relations mission there and this was the first time he had called.  He thought Jo Anne was still in Utah, so it was exciting to get to talk to him and find out how their mission is going.  Great timing!  It sounds like they are having a wonderful time. 

When the phone call ended, we were all very tired!  Wow, a great first day with them.
