A little R&R...

... is not what I got last night. The darn cat has gone nuts, and she woke me up to fly around the house like a banshee at 6:00 a.m. I promptly tossed her out on her kitty hiney. She has lost the privilege of sleeping in this house until David gets home. Hopefully that will be tonight, but I'm not holding my breath. Pray for him if you think of him. This case has been harder than he thought it would be. I miss him. I don't sleep as well when he's not here anyway.

But I have a distraction from my missing hubby! Paula is coming to visit tomorrow and staying through the weekend. Yep, after trying to get her up to visit me for two years, we've finally accomplished it. It took a lot of doing. I called her in-laws myself and asked them to keep her kids so that she could come. =)

I'm really hoping to pamper her and spoil her. She's long overdue for some spoiling. See, her husband is in the military, and he's serving in the Middle East right now. She's been on her own with a rambunctious 4-year-old and a 3-year-old for a few months, and its going to be a long haul until he comes back in July.

I'm planning to have all her favorite foods and junk, take her shopping, out to eat, and to the movies, and maybe even to get a manicure or something. I'm going to fix up the guest room with candles, and the bathtub is even clean enough for a bubble bath. She's going to get an uninterrupted night's sleep around here if I have anything to say about it!

Anybody have any other ideas of little things I could do to spoil her? I want to make her room really inviting. Any tips?

whenever I have guests I always put a couple magazines and some chocolates on the nightstand for them! It's always hard to fall asleep the first night in a strange place so people always appreciate some mindless reading (or so they tell me)
