2 1/2 Hours Later... no nap...

I'm not one to nap. At best, I take power naps, you know, the twenty minute variety. But that was not to be today.

I started checking blogs and playing MasterWord. Then I tried to rest but to no avail. Rick and Jules headed out to play tennis and now I'm feeling a bit alone. That happens when the crew leaves me behind to play tennis. Let's just say, I feel pretty out of it right about then. Oh, well. Rick assures me that I will be back to normal someday. I just wonder if I will ever play tennis again. They (the fam folks who play) are miles ahead of me now in performance ability and it's hard to imagine I will ever catch up -- or even want to try. It's a bit intimidating at any rate...

So I am now on her computer (Alice MacAller's -- I used Brandon MacAller's before) playing more games, stopping to pray every now and then, and letting you all know that I miss home and the gang and all the Memorial Day preparations. Don't forget to cut a big bouquet of bridal veil spirea for the table centerpiece. It wouldn't be the same without it! And tell Merrick what this day is all about -- you know, the veterans, the sacrifice, the freedoms that we cherish such as religious liberty, and all. For that matter, maybe you should visit such topics with the whole bunch of ya'all! It probably bears repeating. You can probably tell I am sad to miss the day at home. Oh, well...

We're just going to hang out here for the rest of the day. My ankle is pretty swollen and could use some "up" time. Alice and Brandon will prepare a wonderful meal, I am sure, and maybe we will rent a "specially picked by Julia" birthday video to view in the upstairs family room -- the one with the mountain top view looking down on dozens of terracotta roofed homes and meticulously landscaped patios with heaps of mountains and ocean on the horizon. You know the type, don't you? You see them in "Diagnosis Murder" all the time.

All right, I better stop talking like that or you'll forget I'm homesick and you won't feel sorry for me any more!

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

I know all about being home sick. I arrived home a couple hours ago from my journey to Iowa. I had a great time, but I am glad to be home with my cats and can't wait to see all my CFC family.

Check your email since I'm sending you and Rick two photos of a gas station that I found in Iowa that you will find interesting.

p.s. I decided to post the pictures on my blog. Check it out and let me know what you think.

My question: do you and Rick have a side business in Iowa that you haven't shared with us?

Ah, so beautiful!

Memorial Day was grea! Though the presence of three missing Sinclairs was felt ("Who's missing?" was the question as we stood around the table to pray before the meal. "Oh...").

I am settling in quite nicely and am thrilled to be part of your family for awhile, and I look forward to seeing you and talking with you a bit more when you get back. Until then, enjoy your time out there!
