Yesterday was a busy day swimming, doing errands in the Upper Valley, doing laundry (AT HOME!!!), getting ready to come to the temple. I left the house about 2:30 and finally arrived at the motel in Lexington at 7 PM after several stops (library, coop for Kosher salt, Sam's Club, rest stops, etc). I made up some of Orchid's Cool Tangy Noodles so Jonathan and family could have them while they are here. they arrived around 8:20 or so. The children were in good spirits and acted well until bedtime, which was shortly. I was worn down and in bed by 9:45.
This morning breakfast was hectic with many other motel guests, some of whom were pushy-pully types of guests. If you were courteous, which we tried to be, you waited and waited and waited. Jonathan has just driven the family in to the Boston Aquarium to drop them off and will then come back to the motel to work from here while they are gone.
With the peace and quiet prevailing, I think now is a great time to shower and get ready for the temple!
Larry Godfrey came to do the remaining excavating and back-filling for the porch. Yay!
