Going home

We are travelling home today. I am so excited! But I know it's going to be a very painful journey. Five hours in a vehicle, hugging a cushion to my chest to minimize bounce. I've already popped some big bomb painkillers. Just in case. Can't wait to be in my home though. In my bed. With my couch. My kitties. With my remote control. et Cetera. Yay! It's been a really cushy stay here at my tjommie's house. But for a non-mom, it's been hard too. I can quite happily say that I never want to hear another Cedarmont Kids song ever again. Ever. As in, till I die one day. But other than that - I can only gush about how wonderful my tjommie's been. (She doesn't read my blog, so this isn't for her benefit, ok?) Talk about looking after an invalid. I owe her big time. I know what a pain in the oo-all I can be when I'm feeling rotten. Any ideas what a really grateful big-boobed person can buy as a thank you for someone special who went beyond the call of duty to make a miserable invalid feel comfy?

A Barney DVD. Believe me, it's more of a gift for the parent than for the child...! Gives one some much needed few minutes to get something done, or just enjoy a cup of tea - IN PEACE! Hanlie

Hey Couz
Glad to hear you are doing well.
Good Luck for the trip home.
Seeming as though she is a mom, time out from the littlie's is always a life saver so i would suggest a voucher for a day at the spa or anything got to do with pampering.

I have to agree with Hanlie, nothing has saved me than a Barney or Bob DVD.

Hi Char,

If it were me, I would want educational but fun books for my kids!
Had a job interview at SDA school today!

Wow... I had no idea Barney was such a Godsend.
