I have a date tonight!!!! I am sooo excited. He is sooo cute. Tall, good-looking, blue eyes, blondish hair. He hasn't told me where we are going, but it really doesn't matter. I think it will be groovy just to spend time with him.

AND the children will not be with us. My good friend Kathy is taking them on a picnic and to the park to play. Then she will bring them home and put them to bed. God blessed me with a wonderful friend for my girls and Erik and I.

I am trying to get this house into some semblance of order. Somehow, despite the THREE entertainment centers in my living room, only one of which is being used. This place is a zoo. HOWEVER, Billy's trailor is all nice and neat and tidy. It is all cleaned out except for a couch and table and chairs which will both be sold soon. I am so glad everything is all hauled off that is supposed to be!! As we took the bedroom suite to Goodwill, a man and his son walked over and asked Erik, "What are you gonna do with that?" Erik, without missing a beat said, "Give it to you." The man was not expecting this remark but was very grateful. He said they had 3 kids and one on the way and could use the drawer space. I think Elvis would be proud to see his bedroom suite go to a needy family.

As we pulled away with all our windows down, in her loudest voice Lilly said, "Are they poor?" I am truly paying for all the times I embarrassed my own mother with my mouth!! Times 3!!!

Have a great Friday!! I know I will. I may even "go all the way" with my date if he minds his manners and treats me well!!

I am so honored that you took time to come see me on date night! Had I realized the importance of the evening, I would have shooed you off to your alone time. Hope you had a great night!
