We have some friends coming from Texas to visit us for a couple of weeks and they arrive today. In fact the plane should be landing in just over an hour. So exciting! I am sitting here at work, trying not to watch the clock. Just a couple more hours and I can scurry home on my bike, hopefully without getting rained on. The weather man predicted scattered showers today around the time I will be commuting home and I'm counting on them being scattered elsewhere at that time.
My father-in-law sometimes tells my husband on the phone, "give your wife a hug from me and hug her so hard, it almost hurts." Sometimes when I get excited with the anticipation of seeing friends I haven't seen in a while I do just that. As you can see from the photo below, I started this practice early. I am the one in the yellow dress, if you were uncertain. I was so excited to see my friend I would run to her and squeeze her tightly. She says she used to cringe in anticipation of my hugs because she knew one was coming. And it hurt. It's supposed to hurt, silly. Well, that is how hard I want to hug our friends who are coming today.
