An Overnight Visitor

Started this morning off with a visit to Curves and quick trip to the grocery.

We also bought an air mattress for our pull-out sofa. The current mattress is done. You know those mattresses are not made for long term use and our son slept on it for almost a year. We've slept on it once and – YUCK! - it's not that comfortable. Hence the purchase of the air mattress. :) With Reagan spending the night tonight, we're going to need!

After a lazy afternoon of watching the remake of “The Andromeda Strain” (didn't finish it yet), we headed over to Lindsay's for dinner and to pick up Reagan. I had told Lins that I would make them tacos tonight. After dinner, we packed Reagan up and came home.

I've been a little apprehensive about Reagan staying overnight just because she's only stayed once before and that was when she was an infant. She is very much a creature of habit and is very opinionated about those habits so I've been a bit concerned about her going to bed here. She has a definite bedtime routine and I hoped that we could get by with an abbreviated version of it.

We got home and hung out for an hour or so just playing and talking and checking out the sleeping arrangements. Reagan had a good time with some of my Mardi Gras beads. Isn't she just too cute! I think she thinks so, too!

We watched America's Funniest Home Videos, one of her favorite shows and then it was time for bed. She was such a good girl!! She went right into our bed without a problem; only calling me twice to go through a couple of rituals I forgot – blowing kisses and then ensuring that her babies were covered up. So, it's 8:39 and all is quiet. I just hope it stays that way. :) I'm just excited to have her here.

We are supposed to get some nasty thunderstorms tonight, so I am a little concerned about Reagan hearing those. The rain is very loud at times on our roof. But, it's thundering some now and so far, so good. Let's hope that Randy & I get some sleep tonight!

Until the next time . . .
