excited but a little stressed
Tomorrow my parents will drive to my brothers house in Seattle. They spend a long weekend there. Tuesday they will get on the airplane (God willing) and fly to Germany. I'm very excited about their visit. I just wish I was not so busy. I also have Alpha Course and Small group next week. And I just found out there is a special meeting with the daycare Jessica may go to. I guess it will be OK as long as I can prepare next weeks Bible study ahead of time. I don't want to be so busy when Mom and Dad are here. I just want to focus on them. But I don't have a house keeper & gardener. I am the taxi driver. Normal life does have it's daily business. That isn't going to stop. I just hope it isn't too stressful for my parents. If you think of them, please pray for their trip. Just driving to Seattle (about 5 1/2 hours) is stressful for them. My Mom just had foot surgery in December, and Dad does not drive anymore. And the 10 1/2 hour flight, plus the check in time at the airport, and customs in Germany make it a very long trip. It will not be so easy for them. I hope they make it over OK. That they are in good health, and that they will have a comfortable flight. I wish we had the money or miles to upgrade them to business class. But they have to fly coach. Coach has gotten less and less comfortable. It would be so great if the airplane wasn't so full! I'll do what I can to spoil them when they are here. I just have to figure out how I can manage "normal life" too.
