That confusion created
when one's mind
overrides the body's
to choke the
out of some ass
desperately needs it!
(Present company excepted, of course!)
Yes, I was stressed last weekend when I had so much company.....but YAY! I didn't have to cook tonight; we had leftover spaghetti and meat balls. I think both of us were so stuffed from all the food we ate in the last 3 days that we didn't want much tonight. Our guest did a very nice thing: he knew that our grandchildren would be here too, and he brought a set of Chinese Checkers for all of us. On Saturday evening after dinner and conversation, mr. kenju went to bed and our guest and I and the four kids played a game. The kids caught on to the rules quickly (one of them knew how to play) and it all came back to me as soon as we started playing. Our guest was kind enough to point out opportunities for advancement in the game, and before we knew it, the children were jumping their men all over the board!
The next morning, I walked into my bonus room to see all four of them on the floor, wrapped in comforters, quietly concentrating on a game of Chinese Checkers. Can you imagine how much that pleased me? Their ages range from almost 8 to 13, and seeing all of them engrossed in a game that will surely increase their brain power really did my heart good! I think that Santa will be asked to bring a new Chinese Checker set to their home this year (so I can keep mine here for when they visit).
