Rusty is home and life is good

Rusty came home Friday night and I was so happy to see him. I miss him so much when he is gone.
Saturday my girlfriend and the triplets came out, so we had to head to the beach! My girlfriend and I watched t.v. while we there. That is what we call people watching. I swear there is nothing better then sitting on the beach, especially when you have a girlfriend sitting next to you.
Rusty did not go to the beach with us, instead he stayed at home and cooked us a nice meal. I love a man that can cook.
Right now it is just Rusty and I in the house. Amber and Ryan are in Chicago, Chris is out in 29 palms and Nikki is at a friends house. It is hard to believe that just a few weeks ago we had seven children living here. Now there are no children in the house.
Tomorrow I have to pick Nikki up and take her and her girlfriend down to the church. They are going on a local week long mission trip. I can't believe that I will have the house to myself for a whole week!
Tomorrow I am going to do a lot of naked house cleaning, try to finish up some sewing projects, and maybe start on a few more. Who knows what my child free life will bring. One thing is for sure, I am going to enjoy every second of it!
Thursday night I was asked to cook dinner for the missions team. I have not cooked for missionaries in a very long time. It will be fun to cook for the team. I got spaghetti. That will be easy. I will also have three other people helping me, so it should be a blast. I am going to call the VFW and see if I can use their kitchen. It will be so much easier to cook that amount food in an industrial kitchen.
I will also be helping out by keeping everyone stocked up on Lemonade and Gatorade. We are in the middle of a heat wave, and when I say heat wave I mean temps reaching 120! These guys are going to need to be hydrated.
I am in a happy place right now. Rusty is home, all the children are off a summer adventure, the kittens are doing great, and most of all, I get to sleep next to the love of my life.

120 degrees!! I thought no place was hotter than here at 115, but you do live somewhere around 29 Palms and I hear that is hot. I feel pretty threatened by heat. But I am glad you have a beach to visit. Your daughter is learning good things, a home mission. I think that is good. Course I am considering the fact that she has you for a mother. She will probably spend her life trying to outdo you and that will be something! Gerry
