Hey, Danna, my visit was more brief than I had planned as DH ended up coming home from work early and we sat out on the back porch talking the afternoon away -- sounds like you've been busy!

It's amazing what a difference a good shower can make in how you feel, hope it helped (and, if not, at least you smell better)

LOL - DH came out of the bedroom a bit ago and stopped in his tracks, odd look on his face and said, "You're ironing?" -- red letter day indeed considering the amount of dust I had to knock off the iron (after having my DS, who is so very proud of the fact that he is now taller than me, reach it down for me from the very back of the laundry room shelf). Not that we go around looking like wrinkled messes here, I just manage the wrinkles via laundry but had a couple of new tops that had been folded up on the dresser a bit too long and adopted a very rumpled look. It was kind of nice, he sat down and we chatted away while I got through the tops I was doing -- brought back memories of when we were first married and I'd spend every Sunday evening ironing his uniforms for the week.

Enjoy every minute of it -- part of DH and I's long talk this afternoon was reflecting back on how fast time had gone by and how much we missed those times when the kids were little.
