Unexpected Guests and Peace & Quiet

I left my cell at home and i'm expecting an important phone call so during lunch I went home and picked it up. I had every intention of going to Home Depot, but ended up sprawled on the couch eating lunch and having some apple juice. I never have 100 percent alone time anymore and it was heavenly to have a hot meal and rest. Today is a typical perfect day, the sun is bright, there is a cool breeze and the air smells like snow while it's about 65 degrees out.

So what was the call about? My brother (whom I have not been able to talk to for a year) decided to take my call. I asked for a fax number so he would sign some documents and he said he would be here today or tomorrow and sign them in person. What a nice surprise! He lives out of state (or maybe technically I live out of state) and he is a big, loud, cocky guy who the kids adore to pieces. The boy already has a shopping list I and an i pod, ha!

I haven't told the girlie because he is...unreliable... and she would be devastated if he doesn't show, so, instead she will be marjorly surprised. He said he isn't staying with us and then mentioned he was staying with us so we shall see. Anyway, long story short, he is going to call for directions. Maybe.

Everyone needs a crazy younger brother or uncle in their lives!

Thank you! As of 10pm, he hasn't called. I wish he weren't so flighty...:(

Maybe tomorrow.

He'll show. He's just being dramatic. The younger ones always are xx

While you think your air smells like snow at 65 degrees, I am actually smelling snow and it's 29. How do you know what snow smells like, anyway?

I'm an only child.

Luckily, my personality disorder allows me to have a "Crazy older brother" at times.

I just wish I wasn't blacked out when he was around. I hear he's fun.

OK! Off to go get some cream for my herpes! (I still have no idea how I got it)

Pp - We had a blast!

Elise - How do you know younger siblings so well. Yes he arrived with some drama.

Dg - Once upon a time I lived in Portland...for 9 months and I fled to sunnier times. I'm not a fam of the stuff - but it's rare to such clear air here!

Moooooog35 - oh...ew. Soulds like your older brother is more popular???!!! :P
