Visit from family

September 25, 2007 at 7:57 pm | Posted in Personal | 2 Comments

I thought we would never have family from England come to see us again, but I was fortunately wrong! Karma Hubby’s cousins contacted us and said they were traveling around the US and they wanted to meet us! I was nervous, but excited. My own family is not real close, so I guess I had hoped that by marriage I would be able to get that close family feeling, but it is not going to happen. I am to much the interloper to them. I feel sad about it, but it is their choice. So, it was with mixed feelings that we began to prepare for the visit from the Cousins. As we went to prepare the new room, we realized the AC is out. Now it is still in the 90’s outside, and the room was built into the attic area so it was at least 100 F in there! We went though two weeks jumping through hoops to get the AC repaired. Turns out that the guy who hooked it up to the new room, serviced it, and had just filled it with freon, neglected to tell us it had a leak. When we called our home warranty company, they said it was pre-existing, so they would not fix it. A new AC unit is astronomical, so we knew it was gonna be a bit to get it fixed. This sent us to moving all the stuff we had put up there to make a permanent and comfortable guest room, only to later finds out the people we made it for will not be visiting anymore, downstairs to the former “guestroom” which is really the study. We spent two weeks trying to get everything sorted, only to complete it at the last minute. Then it was just waiting for them to arrive and get them settled. Turns out they were super nice and such a pleasure to have! They were the perfect houseguests! The kids loved them and they seemed to love the kids! I was so relieved to have folks here that seemed to want to be here! We did tons of exciting things and I will tell you all about them, with photos, in upcoming posts. Just goes to show you, you have got to hang in there and have faith enough to not give up, people might surprise you any day! Plus, ain’t they just the cutest couple ever?!?
