The next day and a half around here are going to be quite rare. Dan is taking the kids to Ohio so that Amber can do a Stanford Achievement Test at the Lima Pilgrim School, which happens to be near his parents. So they will be staying with his parents during this time. I'm staying home to work. I'm also hoping to paint Clayton's room. It's been a light blue for 9 yrs. and we're quite ready for a change. Why am I feeling all warm and fuzzy??? Certainly not because I will be alone! But, last night, Clayton's male "protective" instincts must have been kicking in, as out of the blue in such a caring voice he asked, "Are you sure you're going to be ok while we're gone?" That just made my day!!
